The Gaels and BYU will face off in a West Coast battle at 10 p.m. ET at University Credit Union Pavilion. Saint Mary's is out to keep their 14-game home win streak alive.
Saint Mary's didn't have too much breathing room in their contest with the San Francisco Dons this past Thursday, but they still walked away with a 69-64 win. Saint Mary's can attribute much of their success to guard Tommy Kuhse, who had 22 points and six assists in addition to six boards.
Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, BYU beat the Pepperdine Waves 91-85 last week. The Cougars' guard Alex Barcello did his thing and shot 9-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 33 points.
The Gaels are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (13-5-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.
