The SE Louisiana Lions look to rebound from back to back losses to get to a .500 record. The SE Louisiana Lions are coming off an ugly loss to BYU. The SE Louisiana Lions are averaging 69.7 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 87.3 points on 43.5 percent shooting.

Santa Clara Broncos Betting Preview
The Santa Clara Broncos look for a fourth win to remain undefeated on the year. The Santa Clara Broncos are coming off a road win over Stanford. The Santa Clara Broncos are averaging 82.7 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 68.3 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Carlos Marshall Jr. is averaging 22.3 points and 4 rebounds, while Adama Bal is averaging 14.3 points and 5.7 rebounds. Johnny O’Neil is dishing 2 assists and Tyeree Bryan is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Santa Clara Broncos are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 64.7 percent from the free throw line. The Santa Clara Broncos are allowing 28.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.3 rebounds per game.
The SE Louisiana Lions played Auburn and BYU as their only division 1 teams so far, and they didn't look good in either game. SE Louisiana was horrible offensively in its most recent effort against BYU. The Santa Clara Broncos look good through 3 games, especially offensively, and that includes a road win over Stanford. I don't see a reason why Santa Clara doesn't roll in this contest to a fourth win and second cover on the season.
