Big West leader UC Irvine travels to UC Davis tonight in a rematch of the teams’ thrilling Jan. 10 encounter.
Forty minutes couldn’t settle matters when these heated in-state rivals met last, so a razor thin OT frame was required.
Though favored heavily that night, UC Irvine limped off its home court, barely surviving UC Davis 71-69.
Since, the Anteaters have won 10-of-11, including nine straight, to sit among a select group of NCAA Tournament hopefuls.
UC Irvine most recently held court by starching Cal Poly, 74-47.
Conversely, UC Davis’ recent 5-1 run has dimmed after two-straight losses —the most immediate coming 81-76 in OT vs. CSU Northridge.
UC Irvine Anteaters
Riding winning momentum, while compiling an 11-1 conference mark, the postseason appears bright for the 23-5 Anteaters.
Further, a 10-2 road record bodes well for what should be rough waters tonight at UC Davis.
During their tooth-and-nail Jan. matchup two of the nation’s better defensive teams held each other in check before Irvine’s second-leading scorer Evan Leonard broke free late to seal victory.
Max Hazzard leads UC Irvine’s meager scoring output with 12.1 ppg; overall the Anteaters rank 224th nationally in ppg (71.2).
Though, Irvine’s staunch defense (64.3) is 24th-best in NCAA Division 1.
Defensive laurels notwithstanding, group scoring will be required tonight if the surging Anteaters’ win-streak is to reach double digits.
UC Davis Aggies
The once lowly Aggies have found themselves a bit during their past nine starts (6-3).
Yet, just as UC Davis appeared poised to become the Big West’s rags-to-riches story, old habits crept back in.
Losers of two straight, UC Davis commited untimely fouls against unhearalded UC Northridge en route to a Saturday road setback.
To split its season-series with Irvine, UC Davis must gather recently lost momentum.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UC Irvine is 5-0 SU in its last five games.
- UC Davis is 3-2 SU in its last five games.
- UC Irvine is 10-2 on the road this season.
- UC Davis is 6-3 at home this season.
Free UC Irvine Anteaters vs. UC Davis Aggies NCAA Prediction:
This matchup has several interesting labels: grudge match, in-state rivalry, and potential trap game to list a few.
While UC Irvine is favored on-paper SU against a streaky, yet backslidden UC Davis, one must not forget how much trouble Davis gave Irvine on Irvine’s home floor.
Though, again, the Anteaters own a higher winning percentage on the road than the Aggies do at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UC Davis ATS +4.5
I’ll go with recent trends and pick UC Irvine SU, but the Aggies should beat the spread in another close encounter.
