College Basketball Betting Trends

Eastern Washington

The Eagles are 6-0 ATS in their last six games overall. Eastern Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.

Gonzaga

The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. The home team is 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight meetings.

Prediction:

After a tough stretch with five of six opponents being in the top 50, Gonzaga has a lull in its schedule with no top 100 opponents for another four weeks. The question here is whether the Bulldogs have a bit of a letdown against an Eagles squad that has competed pretty well against the likes of Belmont and Washington. The Eagles are decent offensively and play at a hyper-fast pace. I think this is a good spot for Eastern Washington with Gonzaga perhaps taking its foot off the gas pedal after such a tough recent schedule.
