Brigham Young Cougars vs. Santa Clara Broncos key stats

BYU is led by sophomore Fousseyni Traore, who has the most points per game (12.8) and rebounds (8.0) per game for the Cougars. In six conference games, BYU has looked good, shooting 46.5% in those games while holding opponents to just 40.1%. This year, the Cougars are keeping their teams at just 93.3 points per 100 possessions, and tonight they’ll look to slow down Santa Clara’s offense.

The Broncos have been very efficient lately, and in five conference games they have a 46.6% lead on the field. Sophomore Brandin Podziemski leads the team in goals (18.7 PPG), rebounds (8.5 RPG), assists (3.5 APG), and steals (2.1 SPG). Classmate Carlos Stewart (14.9) and senior Keshawn Justice (13.2) were also reliable scorers. This trio will look to get past a tough BYU defense at home tonight that saw Santa Clara go 10-3 (9-3 vs D1 opponents).

Brigham Young Cougars vs. Santa Clara Broncos Betting Prediction

Both teams are just over .500 against the spread, but there really isn’t much that separates these two schools. Both are very similar statistically, with BYU having a slight advantage due to their defensive skills. The best bet here is to aim for the under, since the under has scored in ten of the Broncos’ 12 home games this season. Also, both teams are above average when it comes to defensive rebounds, which should help keep this a low-scoring game.

Prognosis: Under 145.5 (-110)
