The Gonzaga Bulldogs have been a cashcow for us all season long as they're 20-5-1 ATS and have dominated all season long. While the odds makers look to increase the number on the Bulldogs, Gonzaga keep's covering and tonight will be a major test as they're a 20.5 point betting favorite against a BYU Cougars team with 20 wins on the season. Can the Bulldogs close out the season with a bang...and a cover?

BYU vs #1 Gonzaga Complete and Utter Dominance

In my opinion, nothing other than a NCAA National Championship will be satisfactory where Gonzaga is concerned as they've been unstoppable and by far the best team in college basketball.

The only argument that can be made against Gonzaga is aside from the St. Mary's Gaels, the WCC isn't one of the toughest conferences in the country.

Gonzaga possesses wins over Iowa State, Arizona, and St. Mary's (2 times) and St. Mary's has the 2nd best defense in the country. That said, some of these quality victories don't hold up against the elite teams in the nation and the NCAA Tournament will be the barometer for how good Gonzaga really is. As for the end of the regular season, we get more of the same in a WCC battle between the Bulldogs and Cougars, but the odds are very high and bettors will still be all over Gonzaga. Can they seal the deal and deliver?


If their last game is any indication of what's to come, place your bets on Gonzaga as they're coming off of a dominant 96-38 victory over the San Diego Toreros.

Of course, we tailed Gonzaga and they made it look easy as they got off to a 44-16 lead by halftime and never looked back. The Toreros shot a miserable 24.1% from the field while Gonzaga shot 66.1%. How much more lopsided can it get than that? Except for Przemek Karnowski, all Gonzaga starters scored in double figures and all played under 30 minutes as this game was never in question. Look for Karnowski to play well in this game as he's a 7 foot 1, 300 pound center with a physical presence in the paint and also has a nice touch. Karnowski will look to bounce back.

The only question here is that Gonzaga clinched the WCC Title against San Diego. Do they let the bench players see some action or continue to press full steam ahead? I say Gonzaga looks to go in for the kill and the 20.5 points won't be enough in the end for BYU backers.
