Pepperdine is coming off a 66-59 road win over Portland in their last game. Pepperdine has won three of its last five games overall. San Francisco is coming off a 71-54 road loss to Gonzaga in their last game. San Francisco has struggled recently, losing four of their last five games. This is the first and only meeting between these two teams this season.
Pepperdine has scored 76.8 points per game on 43.8% FG shooting this season. The Waves’ leading scorer is G Colbey Ross, who scores 20.3 PPG. The Waves’ leading rebounder is F Kessler Edwards, who averages 7.3 RPG. Pepperdine allows 77.1 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a -.3 scoring differential so far this season. Pepperdine also earns 33.9 rebounds, 14.9 assists, 3.5 blocks, and 6.4 steals per game as a team.

The Dons’ leading rebounder is C Jimbo Lull, who averages 7.4 RPG. San Francisco allows 69.9 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a +5.2 point differential so far this season.

Pepperdine is 12-15-1 ATS this season and 4-5-1 ATS in their last ten games. Pepperdine is also 6-5-1 ATS on the road so far this season. San Francisco is 12-14-1 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. San Francisco is also 7-8 ATS at home so far this season.
Pepperdine is a tough team to beat, even at home. Gonzaga did not breeze by the Waves when they played on the 15th, so I like Pepperdine to snatch a cover by grabbing the 7 points as the road dog.
