Gonzaga

Arizona

The Wildcats are 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 Saturday games. Arizona is 1-4 ATS in its last five games overall.

Prediction:

There was no looking ahead to this contest for the Wildcats as they annihilated Omaha three days ago. Arizona has dominated all but one opponent on its home floor so far this season and while Gonzaga will be better than anyone the Wildcats have played to date, Baylor is in the same ballpark and that was competitive plus on the road. While many bettors seem to be siding with the Zags, I'm going contrarian and I like Arizona to impress at home here.
