Washington

The Huskies are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games vs. the West Coast Conference. The over is 17-5 in the last 22 Washington games versus the WCC.

Gonzaga

The Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last four Wednesday games. Gonzaga is 4-0 ATS in its last four games overall.

Prediction:

While I feel the spread is about where it should be, the total might be set a bit too high. Yes, the Zags have been nearly impossible to stop this season but they bring a solid defense to the table and Washington plays at a slower than average pace while showcasing a formidable defense. Take the under tonight.
