The Pepperdine Waves and San Diego Toreros face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Orleans Arena. When these two teams faced off on January 27th it was San Diego that won 64-56. 

San Diego was led by Terrell Brown who finished with 13 points. Maxwell Lewis was the best player for Pepperdine scoring 18 points and grabbing eight rebounds. 

Pepperdine comes into this game with a 7-24 record and they have gone 13-16 against the spread. Pepperdine has lost six games in a row and in the last game against BYU the offense could only score 59 points. Pepperdine is averaging 68.3 points while their defense is giving up 77.6 points per game. Houston Mallette is the top player for Pepperdine scoring 13.7 points while shooting 44.6 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from behind the three point line.

On the other side of this matchup is the San Diego Toreros who come into this game with a 14-15 record overall and they have gone 12-14-1 against the spread. In the last game against San Francisco, San Diego scored only 62 points and that led to the 16 point defeat. San Diego is averaging 65.9 points while their defense is giving up 67.1 points per game. Marcellus Earlington has been the top player for San Diego averaging 13.4 points while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from behind the three point line. 

San Diego is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games played on Thursday. The over is 4-0-1 in San Diego’s last four games following a double digit loss at home. The over is 6-1 in Pepperdine’s last seven games played on Thursday. The under is 4-1 in the Torero’s last five neutral site games. 

Both of these teams struggled to score in the last game, and I don’t trust either offense to run up the score. Look for both offenses to struggle to get to 60 points, and that is going to lead to the under cashing. Back the under to cash.
