Fireworks Could Be in Store for Gonzaga-Ohio State on Thanksgiving

The first round of the PK80 Invitational in Portland features some fantastic college hoops action, as the Gonzaga Bulldogs take on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

MyBookie opened the Bulldogs as 6-point favorites with a total of 150.5.

Shark Bites
  • Gonzaga is 4-0-1 ATS in its last five games as a favorite of 6.0 or less.
  • Ohio State is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games as an underdog of 6.0 or more.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of Ohio State’s last five games with four days off between games.

Gonzaga has been on cruise control early on in the year, averaging 94 points in lopsided wins over Texas Southern, Howard and Utah State. Freshman wing Corey Kispert notched 12 points and nine rebounds in last Saturday’s 79-66 triumph over Utah State and has 35 points and 18 rebounds in his first three contests.

Ohio State has also enjoyed a great start to the campaign thanks to the stellar frontcourt duo of Jae’Sean Tate and Keita Bates-Diop. The Buckeyes have scored at least 80 points in every game so far.

This is the first time the teams have met since March 17, 2012, when Ohio State beat Gonzaga 73-66 in the NCAA Tournament.

Gonzaga has typically been an excellent straight-up wager when playing on Thanksgiving Day, as the Bulldogs are 20-2 SU over their last six Thanksgiving tournaments.
