Gonzaga Has Been An OVER Machine For Bettors

It has been a tough year for bettors of Gonzaga. Sure, the team is 10-2 SU but the Bulldogs are just 5-4 ATS in their nine games with a listed spread. But astute totals bettors have been able to capitalize on Gonzaga’s high-scoring offense, with the program topping the closing total in its past seven games. Can the Bulldogs do it again when they take to the road and clash with the San Diego State Aztecs on Thursday?

Shark Bites
  • Gonzaga F Jonathan Williams is averaging 18 points and 10.7 rebounds in the last 3 games.
  • Gonzaga is 11-3-1 ATS in its last 15 true road games.
  • San Diego State lost its only game as an underdog this season 90-68.

Gonzaga is averaging 91.8 points per game on the season, which is good for the sixth highest in the nation. Coach Mark Few is once again getting it done with a bounty of depth, as seven different players are averaging at least 8.7 ppg. Gonzaga has been dominating plenty of opposition thanks to their sheer size with the trio of Jonathan Williams, Killian Tillie and Rui Hachimura all standing at least six-foot-eight.

That means that forward Malik Pope, the senior from San Diego State, will need to play his best basketball for the Aztecs. Pope, who stands six-foot-10, is coming off arguably his best game of the season, as he had 20 points and eight rebounds while shooting 7-for-11 in a loss to Cal.
