The Santa Clara Broncos (18-10, CONF 5-8) and the Pacific Tigers (20-9, CONF 8-5) face off in a West Coast Conference showdown at the Alex G. Spanos Center. The Broncos knocked off the Tigers 84-80 in the middle of January. 

The Broncos are really struggling and coming into this game they have lost four games in a row. During that four game stretch, Santa Clara only covered one of the spreads.

Away from home the Broncos defense has really struggled giving up 79.9 points and letting opponents 46 percent from the field. Over the last five games, Santa Clara is averaging 71.4 points and in this game, the offense is going to need to be strong. The Broncos are led by Josip Vrankic who is averaging 12.4 points.

The Tigers aren’t really talked about much, but they come into this game hot having won five of the last six games. At home, this season Pacific is averaging 72.5 points while the defense is giving up 65.7. 

The Tigers are led by Jahlil Trip who is averaging 15.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. Trip is shooting 52 percent from the floor, and if he has a big game, Pacific will be in good shape.

The Broncos are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 Saturday games. The Tigers are 3-7 ATS in their last ten home games. The underdog is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings between Santa Clara and Pacific. 

The Tigers are the better team, but they have had a lot of issues covering spreads. Look for the Broncos to play enough defense and that will lead to a cover of the spread.
