Against The Spread Pick
BYU visits Albert Gersten Pavilion for a WCC match-up against the Loyola-Marymount Lions. The Cougars enter on a four-game winning streak. The Lions have lost eight of the last 10 games, but they have found a way to cover the spread in four of their last six games. BYU continues to thrive offensively and has covered the spread in 12 of its last 16 games. The Cougars have won nine of the last 10 head-to-head meetings. There is no way, taking the Lions is a good decision. Even being the home team, they are a must avoid. The Cougars are a good pick to cover the 11.5-point spread.
Over Under Pick
BYU has been one of the most outstanding offensive teams in the country this season, and their nearly 80.5 point average can’t really be topped by many others. The Lions are far from the same level as the Cougars, as Loyola-Marymount is averaging 65.5 points per game. The first meeting this season was an ugly performance by both teams, as the Cougars took down the Lions 63-38. BYU is a very established scoring team, but after seeing what when down in their meeting in Provo, taking the under 139-point total is the only play here.
