Loyola Marymount Lions
It has not exactly been a great season for this Loyola Marymount team. They have shown glimpses of being ok, but it has not been done on a regular enough basis.
The Lions lost to the St. Mary’s Gaels on Saturday by a score of 83-51. It will only be a bigger challenge for them whey they face the Zags on the road on Thursday.
Overall, I would not say that their schedule has been all that difficult, which is why I certainly feel their record could be better than what it is. Consistent would not be a word used to describe this squad in the 2021-2022 season.
The offense and defense were both very bad in their last loss. When both of those things happen, it is not very often that you win ball games.
Gonzaga continues to play a very high level of basketball. Once again, they are one of the better teams in the sport.
The Bulldogs currently have a record of 15-2. If it were not for Auburn having a historically great year, this group would be ranked as the number one team in the nation.
This program played last Thursday and they beat the San Francisco Dons by a score of 78-62. It was nothing special, but they did just what they had to do against them.
Drew Timme was their leading scorer in their last game with 23 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. Chet Holmgren also added in 22 points and 9 boards. More often that not, this team gets a lot of different contributions on the offensive side of the ball, which usually leads to wins.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gonzaga ATS
This is a game where Gonzaga cannot mess around in. They really need to be able to assert their dominance.
To me, this game is going to be blowout city. Asides from very early on, I have a hard time seeing this contest be close at all.
The Bulldogs are huge chalk, so that can be hard to lay at times, but in this spot, I like it. This could get very ugly for the visiting team on Thursday.
Give me Gonzaga as the massive favorite here.
