Similarly, No.23 Gonzaga (23-6, 13-2) has already solidified itself as the second-place team. That will affect NCAA basketball odds, with both teams’ positions in place.

Gonzaga vs Saint Mary’s Pick ATS: Saint Mary’s -2½ (-110)

This game will be somewhat complicated for college basketball picks. Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s already have their positions for the conference tournament figured out, and without an incredible collapse in that tournament, both teams should be playing in March Madness.

That has a chance to lower the intensity of this game. On top of that, there is a good chance that these programs will have to match up in the West Coast Conference tournament finals. Neither team is going to want to give the other an advantage.

However, for college basketball spreads, the home team, Saint Mary’s, seems to be the best option. While the Gaels already have their spot cemented on top of the conference, finishing undefeated could be a goal for the team. They are one win away from ending their conference play with a 16-0 record, which could be a massive achievement for the program.

Gonzaga vs Saint Mary’s Over/Under Pick: Over 141½ (-110)

The first matchup between these teams meant a lot more. Gonzaga had already lost a game in conference play, while Saint Mary’s had won 10 straight. That led to the game hitting the under.

Now, in this second matchup, there is a lot less at stake, which could lead to more offense by both teams, making the over the best option for NCAAB picks. At moments, it looked like this game would decide the winner of the West Coast Conference, but with the first and second place already finalized, there will be much less excitement.

Gonzaga vs Saint Mary’s Player Prop Pick: Graham Ike Over 17.5 points (-109)

If Graham Ike is given the minutes, he should be in for a big game. Ike is on a great offensive run, scoring 20 or more points in six straight games and averaging 23.2. He should be able to keep that going, given that he plays enough minutes and is not taken out early to avoid an injury.
