The Loyola Marymount Lions and Gonzaga Bulldogs meet Thursday in college basketball action at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
The Loyola Marymount Lions need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Loyola Marymount Lions are averaging 65.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 67.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting. Eli Scott is averaging 16.8 points and 6.5 assists while Ivan Alipiev is averaging 11.9 points and 4.2 rebounds. Jordan Bell is dishing 1.4 assists and Erik Johansson is grabbing 1.9 rebounds. The Loyola Marymount Lions are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 64.9 percent from the free throw line. The Loyola Marymount Lions are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.7 rebounds per game. The Loyola Marymount Lions haven’t won a road game this season.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs haven’t lost a game since November 29. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are averaging 88.6 points on 50.9 percent shooting and allowing 67.2 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Filip Petrusev is averaging 16.6 points and 8.1 rebounds while Corey Kispert is averaging 14.3 points and 2.1 assists. Killian Tillie is the third double-digit scorer and Joel Ayayi is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are shooting 38.9 percent from beyond the arc and 68 percent from the free throw line. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are allowing 31.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.5 rebounds per game. The Gonzaga Bulldogs haven’t lost a home game this season.
The Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 21-7-1 in Lions last 29 road games. The over is 8-1 in Bulldogs last 9 home games. The favorite is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Loyola Marymount Lions aren't winning games and already lost at home by 25 points to Gonzaga about a month ago. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are 5-3 ATS when a favorite of at least five points and 8-5 ATS at home. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are also winning at home by an average of 28.1 points while shooting 52.8 percent from the field. This is a massive number to swallow, but it's got to be Gonzaga or pass. I can't expect the Loyola Marymount Lions to put together an honest effort.
