Pick
-4.5 BYU (-108) @ pinnacle

The St. Mary's Gaels and the BYU Cougars have split two close games this season, but I like BYU to win and cover the spread in this West Coast Conference Tournament semifinal matchup in Las Vegas Monday night. 

The Gaels needed double-overtime to get past Pepperdine on Saturday while BYU put an 81-64 beating on that same Pepperdine team last time out on Feb 29. BYU should have plenty of energy saved up for this one while heavy legs could become an issue for the Gaels. 

The Gaels are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games overall and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games as an underdog while the Cougars are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games overall and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games as a favorite.

10* play on BYU.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
