#665 ASA FREE PLAY ON San Diego -6 over Cal Poly, Wed at 6:00 PM ET
San Diego comes into this game with an 0-2 record while Cal Poly is 2-2. Despite that, the winless road team is favored and by a full 6 points. Hmmm. There is obviously a reason the Toreros are the favorite. Their 2 losses have come at the hands of UCLA & Nevada, a top 30 team and a top 125 team. Their game on Monday vs a solid Nevada team was a game San Diego led by 5 in the 2nd half and lost by 7. Nevada shot nearly 50% from 3-point range while the Toreros had a poor shooting night overall hitting only 38% of their shots. The 2 teams Cal Poly beat are Bethesda and San Jose State, both rated below 320th. Their most recent game with San Jose State (rated 325th) went to the wire with CP winning by 4 points. Cal Poly shot 44% in that game compared to just 38% for SJSU, yet they still trailed by 14 at one point and had to battle back for a tight win vs a very poor team. San Diego is a veteran team with all upperclassmen in the starting line up that is desperate for a win. Cal Poly starts 2 freshmen so they are a young team and simply not very good. We have them rated below 300 and San Diego rated just below 120 despite their 0-2 record. The better team who really needs a win will get it here. Our projection has San Diego winning by 10 so we’ll lay the number here.
