Gonzaga on a win streak

Gonzaga is coming off a 73-55 win over Loyola Marymount this week and the Bulldogs have won eight straight games while covering in all but one. Gonzaga is 17-2 on the season, 4-0 in the WCC, 2-1 on the road, 14-5 against the spread and 10-9 with the under.

Zaga has one of the top offenses in the nation, averaging 91.2 points per game while shooting 52.6 percent from the field, which is best in the nation. Defensively, Gonzaga is giving up 67.8 points per game while holding opponents to 38.7 percent shooting. Rui Hachimura is leading the team with 20.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game while Brandon Clarke is adding 16.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per contest.

Pilots grounded

Portland is coming off a 76-55 loss at home to San Diego. The Pilots have lost five straight games, failing to cover the spread in any of them. Portland is 7-12 on the season, 0-4 in the West Coast Conference, 6-5 at home, 5-12 against the spread and 8-8-1 with the over/under total.

The Pilots are struggling on offense, as they are putting up just 68.7 points per game while shooting only 42.9 percent from the field. Defensively, Portland is giving up 74.2 points per game. Marcus Shaver Jr. is leading the team with 15.2 points per game while JoJo Walker is adding 12.6 points per contest.

College Basketball Betting Trends


Zaga is 5-1 against the spread in their last six conference games and 4-0 ATS in their last four against a team with a losing record.


The Pilots are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning percentage over .600.


Gonzaga has dominated the series, but Portland has covered the spread in three of its last four in this series. Zaga has won six of its last seven home games by at least 30 points and I think the Bulldogs should be able to roll past Portland as long as it shoots relatively well. Portland doesn’t have the offense to be competitive in this game.
