The Saint Mary’s Gaels and San Francisco Dons face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at the War Memorial Gym. When these two teams faced off in January of 2021 it was Saint Mary’s that won 67-63. 

Saint Mary’s comes into this game with a 15-4 record and they have gone 12-6 against the spread. In their last game against Loyola Marymount, they had another impressive performance on both sides of the ball winning 83-51. The Gaels are averaging 68.8 points while their defense has given up 58 points per game. The 58 points given up per game is 8th best in college basketball. Forward Matthias Tass has been the top player for Saint Mary’s averaging 12.3 points while shooting 59 percent from the field. There are three different players who are averaging at least 10 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the San Francisco Dons who sit with a 16-4 record and they have gone 6-12-1 against the spread. In the last game against Pepperdine, the defense was elite giving up only 45 points and that led to the easy victory. San Francisco is averaging 76.3 points while their defense has given up 65.1 points per game. The Dons are averaging 76.3 points while their defense has given up 65.1 points per game. Jamaree Bouyea has been the top player for San Francisco averaging 17.9 points while shooting 50.6 percent from the field and 40.5 percent from behind the three point line.

Saint Mary’s is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games played on Thursday. San Francisco is 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games as home favorites of 0.5-6.5. Saint Mary’s is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games following a straight up win of more than 20 points. 

I expect the defense is going to be strong for both teams and that is going to lead to a very low scoring game. These are two teams who defended well in their last game, and this game is going to go under the total. Back the under.
