Saint Louis remains red hot against the spread
The Saint Louis Billikens are hot and their bettors are cashing in.
The Billikens picked up their 11th consecutive victory with a 66-58 win over George Washington on Saturday and improved to 11-0 ATS during the winning streak.
The 11-game run is the Billikens' longest winning streak since they won 14 straight to start 1993-94. SLU already had clinched a first-round bye in the Atlantic 10 tournament prior to Saturday’s win and now can finish no worse than third place. A win in either of SLU’s final two games, at Xavier on Wednesday or at home against La Salle on Saturday, would give the Billikens at the least a share of the league title and the tournament’s No. 1 seed.
With two games remaining in the regular season, Saint Louis (23-5, 12-2 Atlantic 10) holds a one-game lead over VCU (23-6, 11-3), which routed Butler 84-52 on Saturday.
The Billikens have posted a 7-3-1 O/U mark during the winning streak and have held opposition to 58.3 points per game.
