College basketball odds experts see that Saint Louis returns talented guards Tommie Liddell III and Kevin Lisch. In addition, starters Luke Meyer and Dwayne Polk are also back for their senior seasons and they will impact college basketball odds. Liddell was a second-team All-Conference selection and as college basketball odds experts know, led the team in scoring (15.4 ppg.) and was second on the team in rebounding (6.8 rpg.). Lisch was an honorable mention All-Conference selection and a member of the All-Defensive Team as he excited college basketball odds fans.

Saint Louis has 7-0 senior center Bryce Husak in the middle and college basketball odds fans know that the Billikens welcome some good newcomers including Anthony Mitchell, a 6-4 freshman small forward. Also expected to get minutes is 6-1 freshman guard Paul Eckerle. The Billikens also have freshman Marcus Relphorde and JC transfer Barry Eberhardt and both will be expected to impact the team according to fans that follow college basketball odds.
Experts that look at college basketball odds believe Saint Louis will need some help inside but if Eberhardt or Relphorde develop then Saint Louis can challenge for the top spot in this conference.
