#690 SAN FRANCISCO (-) over Pacific at 11 PM EST
Off a competitive four-point home loss to the No. 2 team in the nation, San Francisco will go for the knockout punch when Pacific visits on Thursday. The Dons are staring at a three-game roadtrip that will take them to BYU, Santa Clara and Gonzaga and this victory over the Tigers is a very important one to USF’s postseason hopes. Let’s take a glance at our technical support.

A quick look at the History Book finds that the Dons have dominated the Pac-Rat lately posting a solid 13-1 SU and 8-5-1 ATS record in the last 14 meetings. Also, after hosting Gonzaga, San Francisco has actually played well in its next game notching a strong 15-3 SU and 13-5 ATS mark including 12-2 SU and 11-3 ATS provided the Dons scoot in off a straight up loss. Even better, when coming off a home pointspread win and now fighting with four or more days of rest, USF carries a magnificent 40-16-1 ATS mark including a stunning 31-9 ATS in this set provided the Dons check in off a conference game.

With a little bit of steam off a pair of straight up home wins over Loyola Marymount (8-15 SU) and San Diego (8-16 SU), Pacific will get a quick reality check when it visits War Memorial at the Sobrato Center. Even with those victories, the Tigers own a mediocre 31-30 SU and 21-31-2 ATS mark in their last 61 games. In this role coming off a straight up win of four points or more, the Pac-Rat falls to a feeble 6-16-2 ATS including 2-8 ATS if their opponent takes the court off the comforts of a home game. Finally, when holding on to a team won/loss percentage of .660 or better, head coach Damon Stoudamire’s boys hold a ridiculous 7-24 ATS tally in their last 31 lined games including a pitiful 0-13 ATS if their foe played in their own backyard last.

The Dons are 16-8 SU on the year and, with a brutal three-game roadtrip up next, they need this win and cover like blood. Take San Francisco. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
