The San Francisco Dons started the season with two wins then followed those with two losses before winning their last game. Thus far San Francisco has struggled badly on defense and that has been the source of their issues. Mark Tollefrsen is averaging 15 points and 4.8 rebounds to lead a powerful USF offense. Kruize Pinkins is averaging 14 points and 4.8 rebounds, Cody Doolin is averaging 13 points, Cole Dickerson is averaging 12.2 points and nearly five assists, and Avry Holmes is averaging 11 points. San Francisco is averaging 86.5 points per game while shooting 51 percent from the floor, 40.7 percent from beyond the three-point arc, and 59.8 percent from the free throw line while defensively they are allowing 85.2 points and their opponents shoot 52.9 percent.
Oregon is 6-0 against the spread in their last six non-conference games, 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games, and 0-6 against the spread against the west Coast Conference. San Francisco is 18-6 against the spread following a win, 33-13-1 against the spread in their last 47 games overall, and 1-3-1 against the spread against the Pac-12.
San Francisco can score but they just give up a ton of points and that isn’t a good thing against this powerful Ducks team even if the spread is just a bit on the high side.
