College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games. Gonzaga is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games as a road favorite.
The Huskies are 19-41 ATS in their last 60 Sunday games. The home team is 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
Both sides have split their tough tests this season, with Gonzaga besting Oregon in OT before falling to Michigan in the Battle 4 Atlantis title game. Washington defeated Baylor in its season opener and then fell to Tennessee in its third game, both in neutral settings. I think the Huskies show up today on their home court and get a boost from the crowd. Washington is very good defensively, so as long as it can manufacture enough offense it should hang with a Zags team that is typically far more dominant at home.
