Gonzaga To Cover Massive Spread Against Portland

This season has not been what we usually expect from Gonzaga (20-6, 10-2), but it seems to be rounding into its usual dominant form. Next on the schedule, Gonzaga will face Portland (9-19, 3-10), which might be a difficult cover based on the size of the college basketball spread.

In the Bulldogs’ last game, they dominated Pacific, winning 102-76, but they could not cover a massive spread set at 31 points. On the other hand, the Pilots lost to Pepperdine, 91-70, as 5½- point underdogs.

Gonzaga vs Portland Pick ATS: Gonzaga -21½ (-110)

This season has been inconsistent for Gonzaga. The Bulldogs have reached 20 wins but are 2 1/2f games back from first place in the West Coast Conference. The team they are behind is Saint Mary’s, who recently beat them at home.

While Gonzaga Team was starting to improve before the loss to Saint Mary’s, losing that game was a warning sign. Since then, the Bulldogs have started to shift college basketball predictions. They dominated Portland, beat a ranked Kentucky on the road, and then beat Loyola Marymount and Pacific by large margins.

Now the question is, will Gonzaga, on the road, once again beat Portland by enough to cover a massive spread? In the first meeting, the spread was at 28½, but the Bulldogs were home, coming off a tough loss. While the situation has changed slightly, college basketball picks will side with the Bulldogs staying hot.

Gonzaga vs Portland Over/Under Pick: Over 161 (-110)

Despite Gonzaga scoring 96 points in the last game against Portland, it still did not hit the over. That could be somewhat concerning for college basketball odds, with the Bulldogs’ defense holding the Pilots to 64 points.

However, now that Portland is the home team, it should get more support on the offensive side of the ball. Tyler Robertson is the second-leading scorer in the West Coast Conference, averaging 16.1 points per game, and Gonzaga held him to five in the last game.

On top of that, Gonzaga’s offense should not slow. The Bulldogs have scored at least 89 points in the last four games, hitting the over each time, but the win over Portland.
