Zags win 28th straight WCC road game
Gonzaga dominated host Brigham Young 93-63 Thursday night to improve to 20-2 overall and 7-0 in conference play. The Bulldogs led 41-24 at halftime and continued to roll after the break. Brandon Clarke led the way with 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting including 1-of-1 on 3-point tries and 2-of-2 at the free throw line. He also grabbed nine rebounds and dished out two assists.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Toreros are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS win. San Diego is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings.
The Bulldogs are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games. Gonzaga is 5-2 ATS in its last seven Saturday games.
The problem with Gonzaga blowing everyone out is that it inflates future spreads. But if you want to bet against them and like the number, that can only be a good thing. San Diego is nothing to write home about, but it is having a decent season and coming off a nice win over San Francisco. San Diego has only lost two games by double digits this season and none by more than 17 points. I think San Diego can find a way to lose by 22 or less here.
