Against the Spread Pick
This one looks like a blood bath. San Diego is a terrible team and Gonzaga will be looking for blood off a rare loss. That was to BYU who the Toreros surprisingly only lost to by a point. That was a good showing but losing by 29 at St. Mary’s in their most recent game was not. Visiting the Zags could be epic as the Bulldogs trounced them by 44 on their at San Diego in January. That is tough to beat. Gonzaga is really good but I do think it is fair to say it is hard to determine their ceiling. I was not shocked that they lost at BYU, that is a really good team, but I will be surprised if they don’t win this one by 30. This is the top-scoring team in the nation and they will be motivated to make a little bit of a statement. They have St. Mary’s on deck but even if they are looking ahead I am not sure the Toreros can really push the Zags. Take Gonzaga.
Over Under Pick
When you hold a team to 50 points it is hard to get an over but Gonzaga did their best the last time these teams squared off, scoring 94 points. They have been an awesome over team going 23-6 O/U on the season. Even though they are not very deep they are just super-efficient. They probably give up more than 50 because that is hard to match, hopefully, that gets us to the over.
