8* Under CS Northridge/Portland State (10:30 ET): Cal State Northridge will be going for a 2-0 sweep in the city of Portland this week. Wednesday night, they surprised me by beating Portland U 71-64 as a five-point dog. The Matadors started the year 0-7, but have now won two straight. (Last weekend they beat Fresno State 73-72). They've ended a streak, but now it's time for Portland State to do the same. The Vikings have gone Over in every game this year. Keeping w/ the theme of this three-pack, we will go Under tonight.
Full disclosure -- I had Portland against CS Northridge Wednesday. Turns out I had reason to be suspicious of the short line w/ the Matadors pulling the outright upset. Neither team shot well (CSN 38.7%, Portland 32.7%), but the final score was aided by a combined 37 made free throws. While the Over is 6-3 so far in Cal State Northridge games, tonight's total is the highest they will have faced. This is not a great shooting team.
Portland State is 7-0 Over, but this total also marks a new season-high for them. Like Cal State Northridge, the hosts don't shoot well. Especially from three-point range where they are a dreadful 30.1% for the year and 18.2% at home. After allowing six of its last seven opponents to shoot at least 50% from the floor, CS-Northridge will be a welcome opponent for the Vikings tonight. 8* Under CS Northridge-Portland State
