The San Francisco Dons and BYU Cougars face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at the Marriott Center.
The San Francisco Dons come into this game with a 10-11 record overall but they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Loyola Marymount, the offense could only manage 63 points and that led to the loss. San Francisco on the season is averaging 72 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.3 points per game. San Francisco is shooting 42.7 percent from the field and 34.6 percent from behind the three point line. Jamaree Bouyea has been the best player for San Francisco averaging 17.3 points while shooting 50.4 percent from the field and 37.2 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the BYU Cougars who currently sit with a 17-5 record overall and coming into this game they have won four of their last five games. In the last game against Loyola Marymount, the offense was elite putting up 88 points and that was enough to come away with the victory. BYU on the season is averaging 77.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 68.2 points per game. BYU is shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from behind the three point line. Alex Barcello has been the best player for BYU averaging 15.4 points while shooting 52.7 percent from the field and 45.9 percent from behind the three point line.
The under is 10-3 in San Francisco’s last 13 games overall. The over is 6-2 in BYU’s last eight home games. BYU is 36-15-2 against the spread in their last 53 games played on Thursday. The road team is 14-3 against the spread in the last 17 meetings played between the two teams
I don’t think San Francisco is going to win this game, but BYU is going to get their best shot from them. Look for San Francisco’s offense to be good and that will lead to San Francisco coming away with a cover of the spread.
