What to Know

The Sacramento State Hornets have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. Sacramento State and the Portland State Vikings will face off in a Big Sky battle at 10 p.m. ET this past Saturday at The Viking Pavilion. Portland State should still be riding high after a win, while the Hornets will be looking to right the ship.

Sacramento State was just a bucket short of a victory this past Thursday and fell 62-61 to the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks.

Meanwhile, Portland State was able to grind out a solid win over the Northern Colorado Bears this past Thursday, winning 106-99.

Sacramento State is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past four games.

The Hornets are now 6-12 while the Vikings sit at 7-13. Portland State is 3-3 after wins this year, and Sacramento State is 5-6 after losses.
