There has been a long layoff for St Bonnies and that is a big concern for me with this game. Even though there has been the layoff, and it gives me a bit of a pause, they are the more talented team and will have no issue getting the job done in this game Look for La Salle to struggle to score in this game and St, Bonaventure will cover the spread. This is one of the best plays on the board.
