Brigham Young @ San Francisco

Current Records: Brigham Young 14-4; San Francisco 15-2

What to Know

The San Francisco Dons are 3-9 against the Brigham Young Cougars since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit this past Saturday. San Francisco has the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome BYU at 11 p.m. ET Jan. 15 at War Memorial Gymnasium. The Dons are out to keep their 12-game home win streak alive.

San Francisco took their matchup against the Loyola Marymount Lions this past Thursday by a conclusive 97-73 score. San Francisco's guard Jamaree Bouyea did his thing and had 22 points and five assists.

Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for BYU this past Thursday, and boy were they were right. They have to be aching after a bruising 110-84 loss to the Gonzaga Bulldogs. The top scorers for the Cougars were guard Alex Barcello (19 points) and forward Caleb Lohner (17 points).

The Dons are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Thursday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

San Francisco's win brought them up to 15-2 while BYU's defeat pulled them down to 14-4. San Francisco is 12-2 after wins this year, and BYU is 3-0 after losses.
