The Yale Bulldogs are looking to make up for lost time as the Ivy League opted out of the 2020-21 season and they will play on the west coast against Saint Mary’s on Tuesday.

Yale Bulldogs vs. Saint Mary's Gaels (-13, 130)

(stats as of Monday morning)

The Bulldogs have done a better job than the Gaels of taking care of the ball, ranking 54th in the country in turnovers per possession, while Saint Mary’s is 177th in that category.

Saint Mary’s has also had a tough time defending 3-point shots, ranking 232rd in the country in opponent 3-point shooting percentage at 34.2 percent.

Both teams have also had a tough time getting second chances, with both ranking outside the top 225 of Division I teams in rebound rate on missed shots.

With Azar Swain, who enters having averaged 20.8 points per game the past 10 games, on their side, Yale will be able to generate enough offense against a Saint Mary’s team that is 134th in the country in points scored on a per-possession basis to give the Gaels a tough test as a double-digit underdog.

Pick: Yale + 13
