The Drake Bulldogs and the San Diego Toreros will meet up in college basketball activity on Sunday. 

Drake enters this one at 9-2 overall this year. So far, the Bulldogs have taken out Buena Vista, Texas State, UMKC, Boise State, ND State, Milwaukee, SIUE, Rider and New Mexico State. 

In Saturday’s Aggies game, Drake was led by Nick McGlynn, with 19 points, seven rebounds and one assist. Tremell Murphy helped out with 14 points and five rebounds, while Nick Norton chipped in 11 points with six assists. 

Over on the San Diego side, they’re entering this matchup at 10-3 this year. The Toreros have posted wins against Weber State, UC Davis, SDCC, Colorado, Jackson State, Long Beach State, San Diego State, CSUN, Northern Colorado and Washington State. 

In the Cougars game Saturday, Toreros Forward Isaiah Pineiro led the charge on 30 points with eight rebounds, and Olin Carter had a nice effort with 18 points. Alex Floresca led the rebounds for the Toreros with nine alongside six assists and four points. 

The Bulldogs are 7-0 ATS in their last seven following a straight-up win and 8-0 ATS in their last eight following an ATS win. Drake is 9-0 ATS in their last nine overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four neutral-site games. 

Meanwhile, the Toreros are 5-1 ATS in their last six versus the Missouri Valley and 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. The under is 7-3 in San Diego’s last 10 neutral-site games and 4-2 in the last six overall. 

Drake had a firm lead on the Aggies Saturday, going into halftime at 35-25. The Bulldogs were able to power out a 66-63 win however, bringing their win streak to three games. 

As for San Diego, they’ve been on quite the charge offensively this season (aside from the Washington and Oregon games) and barring a little fatigue we should see a nice line from their top guys here. I’m likely going with the Toreros here.

Pick:
San Diego Toreros -4
