College Basketball Betting Trends
Cal State Bakersfield
The Roadrunners are 4-0 in their last four non-conference games. Cal State Bakersfield is 14-4 ATS in its last 18 games following an ATS win.
The Bulldogs are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS win. Gonzaga is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 home games.
This is the last non-conference game for the Bulldogs, while the Roadrunners are basically in the same boat although they do have one more non-conference tilt in late January. This will be a tougher matchup for Gonzaga than its last couple home games and it could be caught looking ahead. Cal State Bakersfield plays at a slow pace and is fairly good defensively. I think the Bulldogs will go through the motions here and get their victory, but bet on the Roadrunners to stay within the number.
