La Salle Explorers vs. St. Louis Billikens

NCAAB: Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 5:00 PM EST

After a four-game losing streak La Salle have won five of their last six games. While they are only 8-15 overall the Explorers are 5-5 in A10 play and they lost at home facing St. Louis earlier in the season. They have been playing solid on both sides of the floor in their recent run, but on the season, they are only averaging 69.5 ppg while allowing an average of 73.5 ppg, which only ranks 237th in the nation.

St. Louis is in kind of the same boat as La Salle, as after dropping four in a row they have regrouped to win two of their last three games. On the season, they are 16-9 and 7-5 in A10 play, but they need to end on fire and likely win the conference tournament to make the NCAA Tournament. The Billikens are not a high scoring team, but they are led by a defense that ranks 28th in the nation in points allowed and they only gave up 58 points in their last game.

St. Louis is 4-0-1 ATS in their last five home games facing La Salle.

Powell’s late game heroics spark W

In their last game, La Salle was at home and beat Duquesne 73-72 where Pookie Powell made a layup with five seconds left for the game-winner.

The Explorers shot a similar FG% (46% to 45%) and while they had 18 turnovers in the game they shot the 3-ball better. Powell led all scorers going for 25 points on 10/18 shooting nailing four of his six 3-pointers and Isiah Deas and reserve David Beatty came off the bench to combine for 28 points.

Powell leads four players averaging in double figures on the season at 16.6 ppg and he has gone for at least 18 points in three of his last four games incuding his last two. The Explorers have covered the spread in five of their last six road games.

Blowing it open in 2nd half

St. Louis was on the road in their last game beating George Washington 73-58 where the game was tied at the half, but the Billikens outscored GW 42-27 in the 2nd half. They shot 46.9% from the floor and the Colonials shot 41.2% and they had 18 points from the free throw line while George Washington only had eight. Javon Bess had 26 points to lead the Billikens and while he was 5/10 from the floor he made all 12 of his free throws. Three other players for St. Louis went for double figures.

Bess leads the team averaging 16.6 ppg while no other player is averaging over 11 ppg. He had only totaled 28 points in three games before going for 26 in the win over George Washington. Tramaine Isabell Jr. ranks 2nd on the team averaging 10.9 ppg and he has totaled 29 points in his last two games. This season, St. Louis is 12-2 at home and La Salle is 3-4 on the road.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

La Salle is the hotter team, but St. Louis has won two of their last three games and is 12-2 at home. Still, going with the Explorers in this one, as this will be a close game. Because it will be close La Salle will cover, but they may not get the win.

Prediction: PICK: La Salle

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

In four of the last five games between these teams the total has gone Under. Looks for that trend to continue in this game. St. Louis only allowed 58 points in their last game and this game will be a defensive battle. In a low scoring Atlantic 10 game the Under is THE pick.

Prediction: PICK: Under

Jason Green

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
