Saint Mary’s vs. Portland Prediction

I’m on Saint Mary’s here. The Gaels have had some close calls as of late, but consistently, Saint Mary’s has had no problem sitting down the lesser teams on the totem pole in the WCC, and doing so in emphatic fashion. I think this game is no different as Portland is still one of the worst teams in the conference. Give me Saint Mary’s laying the big number.

Chris’s Pick Saint Mary's -19
