Youngstown State -8 over Loyola Chicago

The Penguins have done some nice things and are much better than advertised. Eight of their last nine have been on the road and in their last, Youngstown upset a tough Cleveland State team as a 12.5 point dog. Loyola has a new regime and this figured to be a transitional year but results have been slow in coming for the Ramblers. Loyola was a double-digit home loser to Detroit and Wright State in their Horizon Conference openers which doesn’t bode well for the Ramblers taking to the road. It might take a half for the Penguins to get going but fully expect the homies to kick in and exted late. Youngstown 73-56.

George Mason +3.5 over Old Dominion

The home team has won the last ten games in the series and the Patriots have lost their last seven visits to the Todd Convent so why back the Masonites here ??? The answer is simply current form. GMU has won three straight and eight out of ten and seemingly getting better every outing. Old Dom is 2-4 in their L6 and have played four OTs in the last month but the Monarchs are 0-4 vs teams in the top 110. Last year, Old Dominion was the best rebounding team in college basketball but that front court has graduated and the Monarchs have struggled on the glass. George Mason straight up.

Cal Santa Barbara -9 over Cal State Fullerton

Fullerton is 10-3 but impossible to guage at the moment as the wins have come against the likes of Redlands, SIU Edwardsville, and Laverne. The Titans have won but failed to cover their L3 at home and tonight they take on a very capable Gaucho outfit on the road. UCSB is just 6-5 but have San Diego State, UNLV, BYU, Washington, and Cal on their resume. The Gauchos are 3-1 SU and ATS in te series and have won the last three here by double-digits. Santa Barbara and long Beach are the class of the Big West and that shines through here.

UCLA -1.5 over Arizona

It’s going to be another down year for the Pac Ten who will be very fortunate to have two teams in the Big Dance when it’s all said and done. Five of the last six in this series have been won by the home team but lets remember that Pauley Pavillion is being remodeled and the Bruins will be playing the majority of their home games at the old Sports Arena, formerly known as the Clip Joint. Both teams are in complete freefall. Arizona is 1-4 vs the top 100 with the win coming against #99 Clemson. UCLA is 0-6 vs top 100. The Bruins were on five straight impressive wins before getting thumped at Stanford and Cal. Home cooking does the Bruins well here in a game they simplay have to win to cash. UCLA 58-51.
