The San Francisco Dons and Loyola Chicago Ramblers face off on Thursday in a non-conference college basketball showdown in Salt Lake City, Utah. Both of these teams have dealt with COVID cancellations so this was a late added game. There is no TV coverage for this game which is a shame because these are two solid mid-major teams.
The San Francisco Dons come into this game with a 13-1 record and that has included big wins over Davidson and Arizona State. The only loss for the Dons came against Grand Canyon and the offense only managed 48 points in that game. San Francisco is averaging 76.1 points while their defense is giving up 63.1 points per game. Jamaree Bouyea has been the top player for San Francisco averaging 17.8 points while shooting 51.4 percent from the field and 44.2 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Loyola Chicago Ramblers who sit with a 9-2 record and they have gone 4-4-2 against the spread. They have played a tough schedule but they have had some big wins. In the last game against Vanderbilt, the defense locked down giving up only 58 points and that led to the 11 point victory. The Ramblers are averaging 78.9 points while their defense is giving up 61.1 points per game. Guard Lucas Williamson has been the top player for Loyola Chicago averaging 11.6 points while shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from behind the three point line.
San Francisco is 0-4 against the spread in their last four neutral site games. The under is 5-0-1 in San Francisco’s last six neutral site games. The under is 4-0 in San Francisco’s last four games played on Thursday. The under is 4-1 in San Francisco’s last five neutral site games.
These are two defenses that are strong, and I expect both defenses are going to lock down in this game. It wouldn’t be shocking if this game finished with both teams finishing with under 50 points. Look for a slow-paced game, and one where defense is the major focus. Back the under to cash.
