What to Know

The Santa Clara Broncos will take on the UC Irvine Anteaters at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Leavey Center. Santa Clara is out to keep their four-game home win streak alive.

It looks like the Broncos got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They fell to the Fresno State Bulldogs 59-52.

Meanwhile, UC Irvine took their game at home on Saturday with ease, bagging an 82-48 win over the Pepperdine Waves.

Santa Clara is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. If their 4-0-1 record against the spread is anything to go by, the prospects look good for bets placed on them.

Santa Clara is now a perfect 5-0 while UC Irvine sits at 3-1. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Broncos come into the contest boasting the eighth highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 52.30%. But the Anteaters have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 34.10%, which places them seventh in college basketball. We'll see which of these strengths -- offense or defense -- will win out.
