February 9th, 2017:

The Lions are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games vs. WCC opponents.

Loyola Marymount picked up their 1st WCC victory of the season after losing 3 close games to St. Mary’s, BYU, and Pepperdine to kick off conference play. Loyola Marymount doesn’t do anything spectacular however, is a solid team as the Lions rank 114th in scoring defense and 101st in FG%. Gonzaga is the last remaining unbeaten team in College Basketball and has been outstanding all season as the Bulldogs rank 16th in scoring offense, 14th in FG%, and 9th in defensive FG%. Loyola Marymount has been a very competitive team this season and although Gonzaga is beating their opponents by an average of 20.5 ppg, I think the Zags might overlook the Lions just a bit with their upcoming weekend matchup against St. Mary’s. I’m taking Loyola Marymount to cover with the points.
