Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Loyola Marymount is a strong team that has won a lot of games this season. They will be a home dog in this game and it is an intriguing play. The Gaels have had their number and it is something that the Lions have had their eyes on. This is a game they have to have circled on their calendars. St. Mary’s has been a strong team in the conference for many years but this is a different team this year who can be upset on the road in this one.

Prediction: Loyola Marymount +5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

These two teams have a lot in common. They both average in the low 70’s per game. They are both strong defensively and they know each other very well. Loyola is not a strong three-point shooting team which is never a good sign for an over. For Loyola to pull off this upset, they will need to play a low scoring game. These teams are very similar and one would think that Loyola would be favored but since they are not, this will have to be won on defense by the Lions.

Prediction: Under 131
