Free Pick: St. Bonaventure +5 (Bob Wingerter)
Youth and lack of depth make Duquesne a shaky favorite. Their 60% free-throw shooting and very poor 25% 3-point shooting means they need to play better defense than they are capable of doing when three players are getting 79% to 87% of the maximum minutes possible. The Duquesne Dukes are ranked 238 for offensive field goal percentage shooting 41.6% while attempting 58.9 shots per game. The Dukes shooting percentages include 59.8% for free throw percentage and 24.5% for three point percentage so far this season. The St. Bonaventure Bonnies are ranked 29 for offensive field goal percentage shooting 47.9% while attempting 55.9 shots per game. The Bonnies shooting percentages include 65.2% for free throw percentage and 30.6% for three point percentage so far this season. TAKE ST BONAVENTURE PLUS HERE.
Free Pick: San Diego State +2 (Jack Jones)
Tough game here tonight but I see some small value with San Diego State. They haven’t lost a home game since last year against BYU on February 24th, a span of 14 contests. I think they will have a little revenge on their minds from that game, and will be keeping the pedal to the medal after blowing a 13-point halftime lead to the Cougars. This Aztecs team also knows that they can beat BYU, having done so in last year’s conference tournament. BYU hasn’t had to play any tough games in awhile, being listed as nearly 20 point favorites in their last three games. This will be a real test with a hostile environment against a capable squad, and with a comfortable two game conference lead so early into the season I don’t know if they are going to be able to get themselves up for it the way they should. Take the points here today.
