Gonzaga has just one loss this season, to BYU, but it bounced back from that loss on Saturday with an 82-50 win over Pacific. Zaga is now 30-1 on the season while putting up a 21-6-1 record against the spread. Gonzaga averages 85.2 points per game on offense while allowing 61.1 on defense. When away from home, the offensive numbers actually improve to 87.4 points per game. Nigel Williams-Gross is leading this year’s team with 16.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game while Przemek Karnowski is adding 12.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per contest.

Santa Clara defeated San Francisco 76-69 in the opening round of this tournament to move to 17-15 on the season. The Broncos are just 14-15-1 against the spread on the season as well. Santa Clara averages only 66.5 points per game on offense this year while allowing 65.5. Away from home the Broncos put up just 61.4 points per contest. Jared Brownridge is leading the team with 17.7 points per game, but second-leading scorer KJ Feagin is battling a concussion and may not play tonight. He averages 14.6 points per game.

Bet on Santa Clara vs. Gonzaga

The spread is large, but Gonzaga has dominated this series. While it may look to conserve for a championship game, I still think the Bulldogs can win by 22 points with some ease. They already have beaten Santa Clara by a larger margin twice this season and the Broncos could be without one of their top scorers.
