Santa Clara vs. San Diego -4: the opening round of the tournament features the league’s bottom feeders, with both teams 3-11 in WCC play. Neither team has been lighting it up recently: Santa Clara has lost three in a row and four of its last five, although three losses were to the league’s top teams; San Diego has lost six of its last seven. In the head-to-head meeting earlier this season, Santa Clara beat San Diego by 16 on the road. That’s good enough reason to take the points here. Santa Clara +4


Pepperdine vs. Loyola-Marymount -9½: Pepperdine is pretty abysmal as they are at or near the bottom in most statistical categories in the conference. Loyola easily handled them during the regular season (by 16 points) and should have no problem here. Loyola-Marymount -9 ½
