Just saw the Pilots as -7.5 favorites against LMU for Thursday night! Good work Vegas, that's right where it should be. The Pilots are the better team this year and have already beat LMU in Cali by 14, but can they do it twice? Pilots have been up and down the last couple weeks, they beat Santa Clara and played Gonzaga tough but lost to SD and SF before that. After a decent start to the season by LMU, they have totally derailed by only winning 1 game in their last 11. Not only getting beat by WCC teams but receiving a lot of spankings (Lost by 28 to Saint Mary's, Lost by 23 to BYU)!
Listen readers, LMU sucks and they're just trying to get through this season, the towel has already been thrown in. Take the Pilots and lay the points! I like Thomas van der Mars to have a solid game after his underwhelming Gonzaga performance and Ryan Nicholas to drop another double double and squeeze everything he can out of his last farewell tour.
