The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Diane, the reigning Big West Conference player of the year, was ineligible for the first 12 games of the season and makes Cal State Northridge a different team when he plays. In the Matadors’ one conference loss, Diane was injured and didn’t play. Without Diane, both teams are basically even, but with the 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward the Matadors could challenge for the conference title. Cal State Northridge is 5-2 at home this season, even with Diane missing a good portion of those games.

Take Cal State Northridge

Prediction: Cal State Northridge

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Cal State Northridge is ranked 98th nationally at 75.1 points per game, with most of those games played without the 28.8 points per game Diane has scored. But he’s not a one-man team as Gomez averages 20.8 points per game and Harkless averages 10.2. UC Davis has a decent offense that should be able to score on the Matadors’ dismal defense.

Take Over

Prediction: Over

Robert Maxwell

Robert was born and raised on the mean streets of Huntington Beach, California, and growing up he spent more time on his surf board than in the classroom. Robert then turned things around in college when hr got involved on the newspaper staff. He started writing sports articles and then worked for the main daily paper. Covering sports led to betting on sports and I found I had a pretty good idea of picking winners. We are glad to have Robert on OUR team.
