College basketball betting on Friday includes what used to be a rivalry game between Utah State and Long Beach State.
The teams are no longer in the same conferences but there is definitely a lot of NCAA basketball history to consider in this matchup. Here are some trends and stats for this matchup between the Utah State Aggies and Long Beach State 49ers.
College basketball betting had these teams meeting all the time when both teams were in the Big West Conference. Now that the Aggies are in the WAC they don’t play as often. In fact, they have not met since Utah State joined the WAC. Utah State owned Long Beach State in the Big West, winning the last eight meetings.
For Long Beach State to win in college basketball betting they will need a big game out of guard Stephan Gilling who was the Big West Conference Player of the Week. He averaged 23 points in Long Beach State’s games last NCAA basketball betting week. He had 28 points and 18 points in the two games.
Long Beach State is not a college basketball betting pushover. They are even getting some attention in the Mid-Major poll, ranking 24th. They have already beaten Wisconsin Green Bay, who is also in that poll. Gonzaga is the top team in the Mid-Major poll.
Utah State has been solid in college basketball betting recently. Here are a few stats to guide your college basketball betting decisions for this game:
The Aggies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
