Cal Poly @ Portland

Current Records: Cal Poly 3-6; Portland 7-3

What to Know

The Cal Poly Mustangs will hit the road for the fourth straight game as they head to Earle A. Chiles Center at 10 p.m. ET on Monday. They will be seeking to avenge the 72-67 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Nov. 23 of 2018.

After constant struggles on the road, the Mustangs have finally found some success away from home. They came out on top in a nail-biter against the Portland State Vikings this past Saturday, sneaking past 61-58.

Meanwhile, the Portland Pilots entered their contest against the VMI Keydets two weeks ago without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. Portland came up short against VMI, falling 90-82. The Pilots' loss shouldn't obscure the performances of guard Chris Austin, who shot 6-for-10 from downtown and finished with 26 points, and Tyler Robertson, who shot 5-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with a double-double on 19 points and ten boards in addition to six dimes.

Cal Poly is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 5-1 against the spread when expected to lose.

Cal Poly's win lifted them to 3-6 while Portland's defeat dropped them down to 7-3. We'll see if Cal Poly can repeat their recent success or if Portland bounces back and reverse their fortune.
