George Mason is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games. The under is 5-1 in George Mason’s last 6 games. Saint Louis is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games and 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games following an ATS win. The over is 6-1 in Saint Louis’ last 7 Thursday games. The underdog is 9-2 ATS in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.


George Mason comes into this game on a six game winning streak, while Saint Louis has alternated wins and losses over their last five games. George Mason has played strong defense in their last three games, allowing 57, 60, and 58 points. Saint Louis is scoring 75.3 points per game and they have a slight shooting percentage advantage over George Mason. I think we are going to see a very good game here, similar to their lone regular season matchup, but I have to go with George Mason to continue their strong play.
