10* COMPLETE AND UTTER BLOWOUT FROM START TO FINISH (+$12K ALL PICKS L17 DAYS!)
UC Irvine vs. Pepperdine,
11/09/2019 20:00 EDT,
Score: 73 - 77
Point Spread: -2/-115 Pepperdine
The set-up: Cal Irvine won its first game on the road, but I think it'll have its hands full vs. Pepperdine, which lost by 16 in its opener to Cal. Irvine barely held on for a 76-73 win over San Diego.
The pick: The Waves were only down two at half to the Golden Bears, but they weren't able to hold it together in the second half. The Waves finished 16-18 last year, so they'll be desperate for a victory here as they try to get the 2019/20 campaign out to a better start. Note though that the Waves were 9-5 at home last year and they've covered in 13 of their last 19 in friendly confines. I'm banking on the hungry Waves getting back on track here.
10* BLOWOUT on Pepperdine.
