Cal Poly hasn’t won a matchup against California Riverside since Jan. 31 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought.

The game between Cal Poly and the Northridge Matadors on Saturday was not particularly close, with Cal Poly falling 68-55.

Meanwhile, California Riverside entered their contest against the UC Irvine Anteaters on Saturday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. The Highlanders took a hard 68-51 fall against UC Irvine.

The Mustangs are expected to lose this next one by 7. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 6-2 against the spread when expected to lose.

The losses put Cal Poly at 3-9 and California Riverside at 7-5. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Cal Poly is stumbling into the contest with the 11th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 61.9 on average. The Highlanders have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 17th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 62.9 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
