The Billikens continue to roll and still have yet to lose a conference game, despite playing two recent overtime matchups against George Mason. They’re the most consistent Atlantic 10 team on both sides of the ball and are averaging 74.2 points and holding their competition to just 59.5 points on their home court. An 85-point performance against George Mason was the first time Saint Louis allowed more than 63 points in three games. The Billikens are 9-14 ATS overall and 5-6 ATS at home.
A week ago this matchup looked promising but with George Washington stumbling a little bit, it’s tough to get a real feel for which team is going to show up. However, Saint Louis has played three straight games that have been decided by four or less points.
Despite what’s taken place over the last week, George Washington is a solid team at both ends of the floor and has been money all season ATS. It’s also a good sign to see the Colonials pick up a nice road victory heading into this matchup.
I’ll go ahead and take the points on the road, as George Washington has a decent chance of winning this game SU.
