I'm on this over tonight...first of all sorry i got this one up late today...I've been miserable after the last two day of games and the results of the teams we counted...nothing I can do, but do my work.
Pepperdine is at home ans they are the better offense..They rank #70 in scoring offense in the nation..That's good for us, but what's better is the pace in which they play #68...So i expect them to up the tempo here tonight...On the flip side Pacific isn't the greatest offense, but Pepperdine defense stinks..So I think we get a good bump for what Pacific doesn't do well.
Pacific also has miserable 3pt defense and Pepperdine is very good at shooting the 3ball #44
Pepperdine is a very good assisting team #73 and they don't turn the ball over.
One area I can count on id the free throw line...Both teams are great at the line and both teams tend to foul often..In fact Pacific is ranked #300 and Pepperdine is #264...We should make some way at the free throw line tonight..Plus this line is close, so we can expect a foul fest at the end of the game.
Both teams stink at blocks which tells me the inside will be ok for both teams tonight as well...Pacific is #341 and Pepperdine is #261....So that's a big help for us as well.
From what I see it looks like the oddsmakers just took the PPG for both teams and just averaged them out...Well what I see is a higher paced game with 3's from Pepperdine and a game in which the fre throw helps us a ton.
I'll be back strong tomorrow guys with my normal writeup..I'm going through the card now.
