Bulldogs crush Tigers

Gonzaga earned a 92-59 home victory Saturday night over Pacific to improve to 21-1 overall and 7-0 in West Coast Conference play. The Bulldogs led 48-33 at halftime and continued to pull away from there. Killian Tillie paced Gonzaga with 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting including 4-of-5 from 3-point distance. He also registered eight rebounds, four blocked shots and two steals. Corey Kispert had 16 points and five boards. Filip Petrusev accounted for 15 points and six caroms.

Broncos ease past Toreros

Santa Clara secured a 65-52 road win Saturday at San Diego to improve to 17-5 overall and 4-3 in conference action. The Broncos led by a commanding 38-17 halftime score and coasted from there. Josip Vrankic led Santa Clara with 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting including 2-of-2 from 3-point range plus 4-of-6 at the charity stripe. He also pulled down nine rebounds.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Gonzaga

The Bulldogs are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.

Santa Clara

The Broncos are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Santa Clara is 1-5 ATS in its last six games as an underdog.

Prediction:

Gonzaga has been smashing teams right and left including a dominant 104-54 victory over Santa Clara two weeks ago. But this is a decent Broncos team and one that has only lost once at home all season, that being their last home game in a 90-86 overtime defeat against Pepperdine. This is another big spread for the Bulldogs to cover and eventually someone is going to put up a good fight. My gut says it will be Santa Clara tonight.
