BETTING STRATEGIES

Gonzaga picked up wins over UNC-Greensboro and Ohio State to get to the regional semifinal. The Bulldogs failed to cover in the win over Greensboro. Florida State defeated Xavier in the first round and then shot past Xavier, 75-70, in the second round. The Seminoles covered the spread in both games.

Both teams are led by their offense. Gonzaga is putting up 84.2 per game this season while Florida State is scoring 81.1 per contest. The difference between the two comes on defense, as FSU is allowing 73.7 per game overall and 80.5 per game away from home. Zaga are giving up 67.5 per game overall.

Gonzaga is on a lengthy win streak and I do see the Bulldogs winning tonight, but I am not sure if covering the spread will happen. Florida State has the potential to put up big points if it gets hot. Zaga struggled with stopping Ohio State and won that in a shootout. It may need to do the same tonight. Either way, I think this game will be competitive.
