The San Francisco Dons are 8-6 this season and are coming off of a tough overtime loss to Gonzaga. San Francisco is averaging 74.6 points per game and they are shooting 44 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 74.5 points and their opponents are shooting 43.2 percent. Devin Watson leads the Dons averaging 20.3 points and 5.4 assists per game.

San Diego is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 2-5 against the spread against the WCC, and 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a losing road record. San Francisco is 53-23-1 against the spread against the WCC, 34-16-1 against the spread in their last 51 road games, and 4-1-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. The Underdog has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two.
San Diego has gotten off to a rough start in the WCC and I don’t see this helping that any.
