The Pepperdine Waves and the BYU Cougars meet in college basketball action from Marriott Center on Thursday. 

Pepperdine enters this game with an 11-10 record. The Waves are 4-1 in their last five games, falling to Saint Mary’s while otherwise beating San Diego, LMU, Santa Clara and Portland in that time. 

In the win over the Pilots, Pepperdine’s Skylar Chavez led the way on 24 points with five rebounds and two assists. Kameron Edwards added 16 points with eight rebounds there, and Colbey Ross had 12 points with seven assists and seven rebounds.

Over on the BYU side, they’re 15-7 so far. The Cougars are 3-2 in their last five games, Beating Portland, San Diego and Pacific while dropping to Gonzaga and San Francisco otherwise. 

In the loss to the Dons, BYU’s TJ Haws led the team on 20 points with four assists and one rebound. Yoeli Childs added 19 points, seven rebounds and eight assists there, and Jake Toolson had 17 points. 

The Cougars are 5-1 ATS in their last six Thursday games and 12-2 ATS in their last 14 after an ATS loss. BYU is 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 overall. 

Meanwhile, the Waves are 5-1 ATS in their last six Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. Pepperdine is 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and the over is 8-3 in their last 11 road games. 

Pepperdine has been on a nice offensive run lately. The Waves have hit 75 points or more in four of their last five games, and they’ve hit at least 69 in each of their last six. Outside of a game versus Saint Mary’s that got out of hand, Pepperdine has been as good as could be expected lately. 

That said, BYU’s really been turning it on offensively as well. They had 93 versus San Diego, 96 versus Portland and 82 in the San Fran loss. This matchup should be a pretty fun one, but I like BYU to hang on and cover.
