Saint Mary’s is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games. The under is 8-3 in Saint Mary’s last 11 games. Pepperdine is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games. The under is 12-5 in Pepperdine’s last 17 games. The road team is 25-9-1 ATS in these two teams last 35 meetings.

Saint Mary’s is the better team in this matchup, but does go through periods where they struggle to score. Luckily for them, Pepperdine allows over 75 points per game. I am taking Saint Mary’s on the road because I cannot trust this Pepperdine team.
