Stephen Nover's CBB Top Ticket Thursday
Pepperdine vs. Santa Clara,
01/10/2019 23:00 EDT,
Score: 64 - 67
Point Spread: -1½/-105 Santa Clara
Santa Clara is underpriced here coming off a loss to Gonzaga. Certainly there is no shame in that. The Broncos had won eight of their last nine before that. They own victories at home against USC and San Diego. The Broncos can certainly handle Pepperdine especially in a revenge spot after the Wave knocked them out of the WCC Tournament last season by hitting an incredible 70 percent of their shots. Santa Clara has been strong against the spread all season covering 69 percent. I'll ride the Broncos here.
