Gonzaga Bulldogs Betting Preview
The Gonzaga Bulldogs were the #1 team in the nation until a loss to #7 ranked Tennessee saw them drop down a few spots to #4. That was the first loss of the season for Gonzaga, who is now sitting with a very respectable 9-1 record on the season. This will be the third time that the Bulldogs will have faced a ranked team in the early going, and they sport a 1-1 record in the previous two.
We already know about the loss to Tennessee, with the other game against a ranked opponent being an 89-87 win over Duke, who was #1 in the nation at that time. The Bulldogs have been good bet ATS, covering in 7 of their 10 games to this point. They have only played 1 true road game this season, covering the spread in that one.
North Carolina Tar Heels Betting Preview
The Tar Heels find themselves down in the #12 spot right now after starting the season with a 7-2 record. They have also played two previous games against ranked teams, and like their opponents on Saturday, they have split those games. The first was an outstanding 94-78 win over #17 UCLA, but they followed that up with a disappointing 84-67 loss to #7 Michigan on the road.
Pick & Final Score Prediction
This is the must-watch game of the evening on Saturday night, as well as being one that is well worth wagering on. I am going to take the Gonzaga Bulldogs SU in a close one.
Score: Gonzaga Bulldogs 87 – North Carolina Tar Heels 84
