The Pepperdine Waves and the Loyola Marymount Lions meet in college basketball action from Gersten Pavilion on Saturday. 

Pepperdine comes into this one at 11-11 on the year. The Waves are 2-2 in their last four games, beating Portland and Santa Clara while dropping to Saint Mary’s and BYU in that time. 

In the loss to the Cougars, Pepperdine’s Kameron Edwards put up 20 points with five rebounds. Colbey Ross added 16 points with seven assists and four rebounds there, and Kessler Edwards had 15 points with four rebounds.
Over on the Loyola Marymount side, they’re 8-14 this year. The Lions have lost six of their last seven games, dropping to BYU, Gonzaga, Pepperdine, San Francisco, Saint Mary’s and Pacific in that time.

In the loss to the Tigers, LMU’s lead scorer was Eli Scott with 14 points, nine rebounds and two assists. Also in double-digits for the Lions there was Jordan Bell with 10 points and one rebound. 

The Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 2-7 ATS in their last nine after an ATS loss. LMU is 2-6 ATS in the last eight home games and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 overall. 

Meanwhile, the Waves are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 after a straight-up loss and 2-7 ATS in their last nine Saturday games. Pepperdine is 2-6 ATS in the last eight after an ATS loss and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games. 

Pepperdine has scored at least 80 points in each of their last three games, and at least 75 in five of their last six outings. Trouble is, the Waves have been giving up some big points totals—at least 86 in two of their last three. 

That said, LMU isn’t a big-scoring team these days, and they’ve posted 62 or fewer in three of their last four. I don’t see a lot of reasons not to take Pepperdine here.
