The San Francisco Dons and Santa Clara Broncos face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Leavey Center. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free San Francisco vs Santa Clara prediction.

Santa Clara Has Lost Two Games in a Row 

Santa Clara is suddenly struggling and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against Portland, the defense gave up 80 points and they ended up losing by five points. Adama Bal was the top player for Santa Clara putting up 22 points, three rebounds, and three assists. Santa Clara is averaging 76.7 points while their defnese is giving up 72.1 points per game. This is a good offensive team, but in this game if they want to find success it’s going to need to be the defense that makes the stops. 

San Francisco Needs to Forget About Last Game

San Francisco faced off against Gonzaga in the last game and it was a blowout loss that they need to forget about. At halftime the Dons were only down by one point, but in the second half they really struggled and Gonzaga ended up pulling away. Malik Thomas was the top player putting up 23 points. San Francisco is averaging 78.7 points while their defnese is giving up 66 points per game. Jonathan Mogbo is averaging 14.8 points while shooting 65.9 percent from the field. 

San Francisco vs Santa Clara Betting Prediction

San Francsico is going to want to make a statement with their defense and I expect they are going to have a very good defensive game here. San Francisco should still find some offensive success here, at least enough to win, but it’s not going to be their highest scoring game of the season, and that will be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash.
