Gonzaga is 13-3 on the season, 5-0 in the West Coast Conference, 7-2 at home and 4-9-1 against the spread. BYU is 12-5 overall, 3-1 in the West Coast Conference, 8-5-1 against the spread and 1-4 on the road. Gonzaga has won eight of its last 10 against BYU, going 7-2-1 against the spread in those 10 contests.
Gonzaga is usually a poor cover team and that's continues this season, as they are just 4-9-1 ATS. BYU has won three straight games and five of six. The Cougars shocked the Zags on the road last season, so they are not intimidated. Not with players like Kyle Collinsworth, who is an underrated all-around player while senior guard Chase Fischer leads in scoring with 18.1 points per game. BYU should be able to take advantage of the loss of 7-1 Gonzaga center Przemek Karnowski.
