NCAA Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last five Friday games. Gonzaga is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 non-conference games.
The Aggies are 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall. Texas A&M is 1-4 in its last five games versus the West Coast Conference.
Neither squad has played a tough opponent thus far, but the Bulldogs in particular benefited from home-court advantage. Last season, the Zags were not quite as dominant on the road and this is a pretty lengthy road trip against a decent opponent. Reed Arena is going to be rocking tonight and I am taking the points with Texas A&M here as it looks to avenge a loss at Gonzaga last season.
