Gonzaga vs. Virginia College Basketball Prediction
Even with the Bulldogs’ ability to score at will, this is too many points to lay against a defensive-minded Virginia squad. The Cavaliers are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five games when facing an opponent with a winning record, are 8-3-1 against the number in their last 12 games overall and are 36-16 at the betting window in their last 53 game as an underdog. Gonzaga is also just 1-4 against the spread in its last five games after scoring more than 90 points in its previous game.
