Free NCAAB Pick:

Pepperdine Waves -1.5

The Pepperdine Waves have really struggled as of recent with losses in 3 of their last 4 games, but they are clearly one of the more talented teams in a top heavy WCC. The Waves have been a two man show this season as Kessler Edwards is leading the way with 17.3 PPG while Colbey Ross is pitching in 16.7 PPG and 7.5 APG, and the Pacific Tigers don’t have the firepower to keep pace. The Pacific Tigers have been very good on the defensive side of the court this season as they are holding their opponents to an average of 61.8 PPG, but Pepperdine should find success outscoring the Tigers. Final Score Prediction, Pepperdine Waves win and cover ATS 72-66.
