Zags Looking to Bust Brackets in 2016

After winning the WCC conference tournament, the No. 11 seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs will look to keep the ball rolling and start a Cinderella run vs the No. 6 Seton Hall Pirates. Tournaments in 2015, 2014 and  and 2012 saw two No. 11 seeds move on to the second round, and in 2011 three No. 11 seeds advanced past the first round.

Shark Bites
  • Gonzaga is 4-0-1 ATS in its last five games.
  • Seton Hall is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of Seton Hall's last six games.

Seton Hall probably doesn’t care about what past teams have done in the tournament, and are coming off a conference title of their own after upsetting Villanova 69-67. They enter the tournament hot, winning eight of nine SU, and covering the spread in six of their last seven games.

Oddsmakers are expecting a tight game, as evidenced by the 1-point spread favoring the Zags. When things went down to the wire this season, Gonzaga was better than Seton Hall. In games decided by three-points or less, Gonzaga was 5-3, while Seaton Hall went 2-3 — something for in-game bettors to keep an eye on perhaps if it’s a tight game in the final minutes.
