Against The Spread Pick

St. Bonaventure has dropped two of its last three games, but none of those losses have been to teams outside of the top-100. The Bonnies play well on the road, having won three straight. This game is a great spot for the Bonnies to bounce back. They do most of their damage inside the paint and La Salle doesn’t have a defense that is equipped to stand up to that. The Explorers rank second-worst in conference in average points allowed. La Salle also turns the ball over frequently and sends their opponents to the free throw line at the highest rate in the conference, which makes it hard for them to stay competitive, even at home. Take the Bonnies to bounce back and cover the spread on the road.

Over Under Pick

La Salle’s defensive struggles are a big reason for their lack of success this season. Oddly enough they actually allow a higher amount of points at home than they do on the road. The over has proven to be more successful this season for both teams and I don’t see anything changing here. I fully expect the Bonnies to be able to take it to a bad defense on the road and run their total into the mid 70s. They shoot the ball respectably and that enough should be enough to blow by La Salle. I like the over in this one.
