Why San Diego State Can Cover

San Diego State has started this season fantastically, winning all three games, including two wins over BYU and Stanford. The Aztecs had lost their first four meetings against Stanford but recorded their first-ever win against the Cardinal last Tuesday. They’ve relied on their strong defense so far this season, averaging more than 12 steals per game.

Ohio State has flipped the ball 15 times per game in its first three contests, so this is shaping up to be a tough matchup for the Buckeyes. Senior forward Jaedon LeDee leads San Diego State with 16.0 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, while senior guard Darrion Trammell adds 15.0 points and 3.7 assists. The Aztecs are 14-3 in their last 17 games and meet a team from Ohio State that has only covered the spread twice in their last seven games.

Why Ohio State Can Cover

Ohio State got off to a strong start this season as well, winning all three games by at least 20 points. The Buckeyes bring a lot of experience to this tournament, starting with sixth-year senior Justice Sueing and senior guard Isaac Likekele. Freshman forward Brice Sensabaugh has been the standout so far, averaging 17.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.

Junior forward Zed Key is averaging a double-double with 13.3 points and 12.3 rebounds per game, so he’ll be a tough matchup for San Diego State. Sueing is also in double digits at 12.3 points per game, while freshman guard Roddy Gayle Jr. adds 8.0 points from the bench. Ohio State has won 17-2 in its last 19 games in November, and it doesn’t even need a straight win to cover Monday’s spread.
