BYU is favored to win by two at home here.
San Francisco Dons
San Francisco jumped out to a 13-1 start, but they’ve dropped three of their last five games against West Coast powers. The Dons did manage to defeat a talented Santa Clara team at home last time out, 88-85.
Jamaree Bouyea has saved his best for last, and the fifth-year senior led USF to their best start since Bill Russell donned a jersey. The 6’2 guard tied his season-high with 25 points in the win over Santa Clara, and he played all 40 minutes for the fourth time in five games.
Bouyea is the heart of this team, and he’s averaging a team-leading 18.3 ppg, while grabbing 5.1 rpg and dishing out 3.6 apg.
USD transfer Yauhen Massalki has given USF a strong interior presence. The 6’9 big has posted three straight double-doubles, and he grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds in his revenge game against San Diego. He’s scoring 14.1 ppg, while grabbing a team-leading 8.9 rpg.
Khalil Shabazz compliments Bouyea in the backcourt well. The 6′ guard scored a season-high 27 points in the win over the Torreros, and he scores 12.5 ppg.
BYU enjoyed a sucessful non-conference slate, picking up victories over San Diego State, Oregon, and arch rivals Utah and Utah State. The Cougars have won seven of their last ten, but they’ve dropped their last two by a combined four points.
BYU is one of the best rebounding teams in the country, and they score a solid 74.1 ppg.
The Cougars are spearheaded by super senior Alex Barcello. The 6’2 guard has remained consistent on both sides of the ball, and he’s shooting well, hitting three or more treys in eight of his last ten games. Barcello leads BYU with 16.8 ppg.
Veteran guard Te’Jon Lucas transferred in after leading Milwaukee U in scoring, and he’s second on the team with 10.8 ppg, while leading the team with 4.4 apg.
Fousseyni Traore anchors the BYU lineup, and he leads the team with 8.4 rpg. Gideon George and Caleb Lohner bring even more length and versatility to the lineup, and they both averaging over six boards per game.
CBB Betting Trends:
- USF is 10-5 ATS in their last 15 games.
- BYU is 7-3 their last 10 games following a ATS loss.
- Under is 8-5 in Cougars last 13 games.
Free San Francisco Dons vs. BYU Cougars NCAAB Prediction: BYU to Win
BYU has been consistent to bettors dating all the way back to football season, and we shouldn’t let a pair of tough conferences losses forget that.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: BYU ML (-125)
The loss to Pacific was bad, but this is the same team that held Jamaree Bouyea and Khalil Shabazz to a combined 11-34 shooting on their home floor. There’s pressure on Mark Pope’s team to get back on task here, and I feel like they come through at home. Alex Barcello has noticeably performed better in Provo, and their in another profitable spot. With such a small margin, I’m going with the ML for safety.
Take BYU’s ML for this WCC battle.
