Meanwhile, Pepperdine received a tough blow on Monday as they fell 86-74 to the Utah Valley Wolverines.
Barring any buzzer beaters, UC Davis is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
UC Davis’ win brought them up to 2-0 while the Waves’ loss pulled them down to 1-2. A couple last-season stats to keep an eye on: The Aggies rank 33rd in college basketball when it comes to steals per game, with 7.5 on average. Less enviably, Pepperdine has allowed their opponents an average of 9.3 steals per game, the 30th most in college basketball. In other words, they will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
