The UC Davis Aggies and UC Santa Barbara Gauchos meet Saturday in college basketball action at The Thunderdome.

The UC Davis Aggies look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The UC Davis Aggies are averaging 62.8 points on 42.2 percent shooting and allowing 69.8 points on 46.7 percent shooting. TJ Shorts II is averaging 14.8 points and five rebounds while Siler Schneider is averaging 10.4 points and 1.9 assists. Joe Mooney is dishing one assist and Matt Neufeld is grabbing three rebounds. The UC Davis Aggies are shooting 31.7 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. The UC Davis Aggies are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.4 rebounds per game. The UC Davis Aggies have lost seven of their last nine road games.

The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are averaging 72.4 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 66.8 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Ar'Mond Davis is averaging 14 points and 5.7 rebounds while Devearl Ramsey is averaging 11.2 points and 3.6 assists. Amadou Sow is the third double-digit scorer and JaQuori McLaughlin is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos have won eight of their last nine home games.

The Aggies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Gauchos are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 Saturday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The Aggies are 6-14-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Gauchos last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in Aggies last 7 overall.

The UC Davis Aggies have a consistent problem putting the ball in the hoop, and it doesn't help them on the road where they're losing by an average of 8.1 points and are 5-9 ATS. In the previous meeting between these teams, UC Davis lost by 11 points, and that was with the Aggies having one of their better shooting nights of the season. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos win by an average of 9.6 points at home this season and have an offense that can pull away from teams when that outside shot is falling. UC Davis is likely going to have trouble keeping up. I'll take the Gauchos in another double-digit victory.

Pick:
UC Santa Barbara -8
