The Atlantic 10 battles the Pac-12 in a non-conference matchup up in the Pacific Northwest on the hardwood. The Saint Louis Billikens make the long trek to take on the Oregon State Beavers Saturday night. Saint Louis won for just the second time in seven games as they beat Murray State 69-55 at home Tuesday night. Oregon State has five straight wins as they defeated Jacksonville State 70-69 at home Tuesday night. The Billikens won the only previous matchup between the teams, which came more than half a century ago: Saint Louis prevailed 64-52 back on December 29, 1966.

Saint Louis Billikens Go for Second Straight Win

Saint Louis had dropped five of six after starting the season 3-0 but took down Murray State their last time out. That allowed the Billikens to get back to the .500 mark as they are now 5-5 on the season. Saint Louis trailed by three at the half but rallied to outscore the Racers 41-24 in the second half to get the win. The Billikens prevailed despite shooting a lousy 35.5 percent from the floor, including seven of 24 from three point range. Saint Louis struggled at the free throw line, hitting 18 of 30 attempts, though they did hold Murray State to 34.5 percent shooting. Javon Bess had 20 points, six rebounds and five steals to lead the Billikens.

The Billikens are atrocious when it comes to putting points on the board as they are 335th in scoring offense with 64.3 points a game. Saint Louis is tied for 247th in rebounding with 34.5 per contest and tied for 282nd with 12.3 assists per night. The Billikens are above average on the defensive end as they are tied for 81st in scoring defense by allowing 67 points a game. Javon Bess leads the team with 15 points plus 6.1 rebounds per game: he is the only player scoring in double figures for the team this season. Jalen Johnson (9.1 points) is one of three players scoring more than nine points a game this season. Jordan Goodwin, Davell Roby, Aaron Hines, Hasahn French and D.J. Foreman each score better than four points a game. Saint Louis is hitting only 39.7 percent from the floor as a team. The Billikens sink 5.3 triples a night but are shooting a paltry 27.6 percent from beyond the arc. Saint Louis is splashing only 67.5 percent of their free throw attempts.

Oregon State Beavers Shoot for Sixth Straight Win

Oregon State has won five in a row though they had a tough time with Jacksonville State in Corvallis their last time out. The Beavers go for a sixth straight win as they are 7-3 on the season coming into this one. Oregon State trailed by three at the half but rallied for the win despite going scoreless over the final 2:33. The Beavers were fortunate to allow just two points in that span to preserve a one point win. Oregon State shot 52.2 percent from the field and went eight of 18 from three point range. They did struggle at the line, hitting 14 of 22 attempts: Stephen Thompson Jr. had 18 points and five assists to lead the Beavers.

The Beavers are slightly above average on the offensive end of the floor as they are tied for 146th in the nation by scoring 77.2 points per game. Oregon State is tied for 193rd in rebounding as they collect 35.9 boards a game and tied for 71st in assists as they dish out 16.1 dimes a night. The Beavers are tied for 141st in scoring defense as they allow 70.3 points per game. Tres Tinkle leads the team with 17.7 points plus 6.9 rebounds per game this season. Stephen Thompson Jr. is averaging 16.3 points, 3.5 boards and 3.4 assists a night. Drew Eubanks chips in 15.3 points plus 6.8 rebounds while Ethan Thompson chips in 10.7 points a night. Alfred Hollins, Kendal Manuel, Gligorije Rakocevic and Jaquori McLaughlin are the next guys in the rotation for the Beavers. Oregon State is hitting 49 percent from the field as a team this season. The Beavers connect on 5.5 three pointers per game but shoot only 29.7 percent from beyond the arc as a team. Oregon State is shooting 73 percent at the free throw line this season.

Trends:

Saint Louis

  • Billikens are 8-22 ATS in their last 30 non-conference games
  • Billikens are 9-28 ATS in their last 37 Saturday games

Oregon State

  • Beavers are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games

Don’t expect much success from the perimeter from either team here as they both shoot sub-30 percent from beyond the arc this season. Saint Louis had lost five of six before they beat Murray State but you won’t beat many teams shooting 35.5 percent. Oregon State hung on for dear life to beat Jacksonville State thanks to some tough defense in the final three minutes. The Beavers are close to home with this game being played in Portland: you have to give the edge to Oregon State as they at least can score with some consistency this season.

Pick: Oregon State Beavers -7
