Saint Mary’s is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The over is 4-0-1 in Saint Mary’s last 5 games. Portland is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win. The under is 7-1 in Portland’s last 8 games. The underdog is 7-3 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

Saint Mary’s comes into this game on a roll and is sitting in 2nd place in the conference. Portland has the home court advantage, but is coming off of a beat down against Gonzaga. Portland has not been good on defense, allowing over 72 points per game against. I like the over in this game as I think both teams will be able to score.
