The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

Neither offense is setting the world on fire but what is smoking is the Billikens defense, that according to KenPom, is top 20 in the country. And that’s how Saint Louis wins games and they should win this game and manges to cover through their transition game, I will play the Billikens to cover on Saturday.

Prediction: Saint Louis -4 Points

Full-Game Total Pick

La Salle already has trouble enough scoring points, but they will have their work cut out for them when they face the Billikens defense on Saturday. Saint Louis also has trouble scoring against anyone, and I would be surprised to see this game hit 130 points. I will be playing the under on Saturday.

Prediction: Under 134.5 Points
