BYU Cougars v. San Diego Toreros at Jenny Craig Pavilion in San Diego, California

Saturday, January 14th, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. EST

Point Spread: BYU Cougars -11

Over/Under: 151.5

The Brigham Young Cougars are visiting the west coast as they take a trip out to San Diego to face off with the Toreros. BYU has looked great this season. The Cougars are 13-5, and they’ve gone 4-1 in conference play. Brigham Young is currently 3rd place in the West Coast Conference standings. The San Diego Toreros have had a tougher time this season. The Toreros are just 8-9, and they’ve gone 1-3 in the conference. Will the Toreros find a way to upset the BYU Cougars for their second conference win in this one?

Mika leads BYU past the Dons

BYU picked up their fourth conference win on Thursday night with a 85-75 win over the San Francisco Dons. Brigham Young was dominant, and they never trailed in the victory over San Francisco. Eric Mika led the way for the Cougars. Mike led all scorers with a career-high 31 points on 71% shooting against the Dons. Mika also corralled 12 rebounds to complete a double-double on the night. Nick Emery did his part by adding 22 points in the win.

The Brigham Young Cougars shot the ball very well against the Dons. BYU connected on more than 55% of their shots from the field. The Cougars have had one of the WCC’s best offenses all season long. BYU is second in the conference in points scored. They are averaging nearly 84 points per game. The Cougars are one of only two teams in the conference that average more than 80 points per game this season.

Toreros stumble against Santa Clara

The San Diego Toreros dropped their second home game in a row, losing 59-57 to the Santa Clara Broncos on Thursday night. The Toreros kept it close. They had a lead with less than 3 minutes to go, but they couldn’t hang on against the Broncos. Brett Bailey had a nice outing for the Toreros. Bailey led San Diego in scoring and rebounding in the loss. He finished the night with 15 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, and a block.

The Toreros haven’t been done a great job of shooting the ball this year. However, they did manage to hit 50% of their shots in the loss to the Santa Clara Broncos. San Diego has been one of the West Coast Conference’s worst shooting teams this season. The Toreros are making less than 43% of their shots from the field. They have the third lowest field goal percentage in the West Coast Conference this season.

Trends:

The BYU Cougars are:

  • 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. West Coast.
  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win.
  • 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games.

The San Diego Toreros are:

  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games.
  • 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog.
  • 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
  • 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

There’s no doubt that BYU has the more talented team, but I’m not sure the Cougars will blow out the Toreros on Saturday night. BYU hasn’t beaten the San Diego Toreros by more than 11 points at home in five years. The Cougars haven’t traveled particularly well this season, and the home team is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these teams. I’m taking the points in this one.

Pick: San Diego Toreros +11
