Gonzaga vs San Francisco ATS Pick: Gonzaga -3½

Going into this game, it is pretty clear why these two teams are at the top of the conference. Gonzaga has nine wins over the last 10 games while San Francisco has won seven of eight. Both teams have lost to the top team (Saint Mary’s) in the conference during that stretch. San Francisco faced Saint Mary’s twice and lost to Gonzaga, leading to its three losses. Gonzaga only played Saint Mary’s once over the last 10 games, leading to its one loss.

That one loss is a big reason Gonzaga is favored in college basketball spreads, and should be able to cover in this win. The main issue is that the Bulldogs have not covered a spread over their last three big wins. However, the lowest spread for Gonzaga during the previous four games has been 15½ points.

This spread will be significantly smaller with San Francisco being the home team and possibly having a legit chance in college basketball odds to win the game. That does help Gonzaga in its chances to cover, especially with how good it has been playing recently.

The closest game the Bulldogs have played since losing to Saint Mary’s six games ago was an 89-85 win over Kentucky, a team ranked 17th at the time.

Gonzaga vs San Francisco Over/Under Pick: Over 152½

These are two of the best offenses in the West Coast Conference, making it hard to believe the game won’t hit the over. Gonzaga averages 86.1 points, the most in the conference, while San Francisco is second at 79.

With both teams having solid offenses, it is hard not to side with that for college basketball picks. Both schools also have a top-three defense in the conference, but most of that could be because of the quality of the opponents they are usually facing in the conference. The offenses should take over in this game.

Gonzaga vs San Francisco Player Prop Pick: Graham Ike Over 17.5 points (-120)

It has been a mixed bag of a season for Gonzaga, including most of its players. Graham Ike somewhat falls into that category but seems to be finding his groove, especially recently. He has scored 20 or more points in five straight games and eight times over the last 10. The offense seems to have been placed on his shoulders and Ike has responded. In a big matchup, he should continue to do so.
