Pennsylvania vs. La Salle - 11/13/17 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

USA TODAY Sports

The La Salle Explorers will look to remain perfect after winning their season opener by a final score of 61-40 over Saint Peter’s. Pookie Powell led the team by going 6 of 9 from the floor with 4 triples, while B.J. Johnson added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the double-double to finish as the lone pair of Explorers in double figures scoring in the win. Amar Stukes added a game-high 5 assists and a pair of steals, while Miles Brookins added 7 points off of the bench. As a team, La Salle is scoring 61 points per game while shooting 46.8% from the floor, 36.8% from behind the 3-point line and 71.4% from the foul line this season.

The Penn Quakers will come into this one looking for their first win of the season after dropping their opener against Fairfield by a final score of 80-72. Ryan Betley hit 7 of his 18 field goal attempts, including 3 triples, for 20 points to go along with 10 rebounds and a pair of blocks for the double-double. Darnell Foreman came 2nd with 17 points on 4 of 11 shooting with a pair of triples and a team-high 4 assists, while AJ Brodeur added 13 points and 4 assists. Caleb Wood added 3 threes for 9 points, while Jackson Donahue chipped in 5 points and 6 rebounds. As a team, Penn is scoring 72 points per game on 36.1% shooting from the floor, 23.1% from behind the arc and 57.9% from the foul line this season.

La Salle is 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games overall while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall. Penn is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 6-3 in their last 9 games overall.

I know this is Penn’s home opener, but we are getting points with the better team and that’s usually a solid way to cash out winners. I’ve been high on this La Salle team going back a couple of seasons now, and I think they have a deeper squad then Penn does, so I’ll take the points with La Salle in a game that I think the Explorers win outright.
