Saint Mary's enters tonight's conference championship game having won nine of its last 10 games and is 6-3-1 against the number during that span. The Gaels are also 16-10 against the spread on the season and 28-3 straight up, winning 10 of 11 games on the road (although tonight is a neutral site contest).
Gonzaga has also won nine of its last 10 games entering play tonight, and is also 6-3-1 against the number over that same span. The Bulldogs have been a profitable 21-7 against the number on the season and finished the regular season winning 31 of their 32 games on the year.
OUR PREDICTION: The Gaels have been a horrible bet when playing the Bulldogs in recent meetings, covering the point spread just once in the last 12 games between these two teams. The Bulldogs are also 14-3-1 against the spread in their last 18 games when playing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600 and are 21-6-1 against the number in their last 28 conference games. When they fail to cover like they didn't last night in a win over Santa Clara, the Bulldogs are also 8-1 at the betting window in their following game.
