St. Mary’s is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games. The Gaels are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games as a favorite. The under is 4-0 in Gaels last 4 games following an against the spread win.

This is a Yale team that should be competitive in the Ivy League, but I expect they are going to struggle to score in this game. Saint Mary’s is averaging 58 points per game and they are going to lock down in this game. Back St. Mary’s to win this game and cover the spread.
