Although the Waves are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall, they are also 41-19-2 ATS in their last 62 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The  Gaels are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. I think it is just way too many points for Saint Mary’s to cover as they aren’t even a high scoring team. I’ll take Pepperdine plus all the points.
