College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS in their last four neutral site games. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Dons are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven neutral site games. San Francisco is 5-11-1 ATS in its last 17 games as an underdog.
Gonzaga has had plenty of time to rest up and prepare, while the Dons needed to win Friday and Saturday just to get to this pont. But San Francisco has also played Gonzaga fairly tough this season, losing by only four at home and 17 on the road. Considering the rust factor could be an issue for the Zags, I like San Francisco to be a thorn in their side long enough for this to stay closer than what the spread line says.
