ATS Pick: Kansas +4½

Kansas didn’t win seven games against ranked opponents this year by having a one-player team, so keep that in mind when looking at the Jayhawks being the underdog in what could be a competitive 4-5 matchup in the Midwest Region.

Although Kansas is the underdog, it is hard to ignore their track record for the Jayhawks when they face a team from the West Coast Conference. Keep an eye on that line especially if money starts to land on the Jayhawks.

 

 

Over/Under Pick: Over 151½

The teams combined for 192 points the last time that Kansas and Gonzaga squared off, with the game going over the 154½ line on a 3-pointer by current Orlando Magic guard Jalen Suggs. Don’t expect this matchup to approach that number, but it could go over the 151½-point total.

Since being limited to 62 points in a loss to WCC rival Saint Mary’s, Gonzaga has picked things up on offense by scoring at least 85 points in nine of its last 11 games.

Gonzaga ranked eighth in offensive efficiency. Kansas has the 13th-best defensive efficiency according to the Pomeroy college basketball ratings.

 

 

Player Prop Pick: Hunter Dickinson 20+ Points (+127)

Dickinson will be the focus of the Gonzaga defense, especially without McCullar there as another elite scoring threat, but this is a game when he needs to be the best player on the court, so look for the Jayhawks to get the ball to Dickinson early and often in this game.

 

 

Score Prediction

Kansas 82, Gonzaga 80
