Over on the LMU side, they’re sitting at 8-12 this year. After a four-game losing streak to BYU, Gonzaga, Pepperdine and San Francisco the Lions got a win in their last game versus Portland. 

In the win over the Pilots, LMU’s Keli Leaupepe put up 24 points with eight rebounds and two assists. Parker Dortch added 20 points in that game, and Eli Scott doubled up with 13 rebounds, 10 assists and five points. 

LMU is 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games and 0-4 ATS in their last four after a straight-up win. The Lions are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 overall and the over is 4-1 in their last five after an ATS win. 

Meanwhile, Saint Mary’s is 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and the over is 5-2 in their last seven Saturday games. The under is 38-18-2 in the Gaels’ last 58 after a straight-up win and the over is 11-5 in their last 16 overall.
Saint Mary’s didn’t have a whole lot of issues with the Dons in their last outing, holding SF to just 48 points. That’s the latest effort in a string of solid outings for the Gaels, who have turned into a pretty formidable opponent this year. 

As for LMU, they’ve lost the proverbial handle over the last five games despite putting up a nice outing versus Portland. All things considered here, I don’t think the Lions will be able to score much here so I’m going with the Gaels.
