As bad as the Pioneers are on the road, they are that good and better at home. Lay the points on Denver this evening when the Cal St Northridge Matadors pay a visit.
Our Tuesday night college basketball selection is on the Denver Pioneers minus the points at home in the Magness Arena over Northridge St.
The Pioneers have one of the bigger home/road dichotomies in College Hoops. Since November 28, 2004, they're a solid 50-19 straight-up, and 39-19-2 ATS at home, including 28-12 as a favorite. But on the road, they're a miserable 26-115 straight-up and cover just 40% vs. non-conference foes.
Last year, the Matadors blew out Denver 80-53, but of course that game was at Northridge. Now, in Denver, let's lay the points, as Denver is a super 29-11 ATS at home when playing with revenge from a loss in the previous season to its opponent, including a perfect 9-0 ATS when Denver is favored vs. a foe off a straight-up loss.
Northridge, indeed, checks into tonight's game off a 12-point loss at Washington. The Matadors caught the Huskies at a bad time coming off their lost, with Washington winning the game on the boards with a 41-22 rebound margin and at the line where 31 of its points came from compared to 21 for Northridge.
Take Denver minus the points on Tuesday when the Pioneers host the Cal State Northridge Matadors.
Free Pick: Denver -5½ (-110)
