Why Bet on the Gonzaga Bulldogs?

The Bulldogs are coming off a 12th straight win to kick-start conference play this season by taking down the Santa Clara Broncos at home. Their incredible WCC run already featured a victory over San Francisco after the Bulldogs overpowered the Dons at home, 78-62, last January.

Gonzaga is the biggest offensive threat in the league right now. They record a league-high 89.5 points per game on 52.9% shooting (first). The Bulldogs are almost unstoppable from the perimeter and inside the paint. They hit 61.8% of their two-point attempts (first) while averaging a respectable 37.5% from beyond the arc (26th). The only weakness we see on this end is the team’s free-throw shooting percentage at 72.0% (163rd).

The WCC leaders are no slouch on defense as well. They hold teams to 64.6 points (36th) per game and limit opponents to 37.2% shooting (second). Head coach Mark Few is particular with his squad’s shooting defense as they maintain a 41.1% opponent two-point (third) and 29.7% opponent three-point (20th) percentage.

There are no notable injuries that happened to Gonzaga’s lineup this month, which means the rest of the core team is ready to go.

Why Bet on San Francisco Dons?

San Francisco bounced back from a 69-64 road loss to the Saint Mary’s Gaels last week. The team recovered from the defeat and steamrolled the Pacific Tigers to a 104-71 blowout victory. The Dons eagerly await this rematch against Gonzaga after a solid run of seven wins in ten games.

The hosts put plenty of work on the offensive end. There’s good reason to say that the team can keep up with Gonzaga on this side of the court. As a team, San Francisco averages 76.3 points (40th) per game on 45.8% shooting (60th). We see the team do plenty of work from the perimeter and close range, hitting 55.3% of their two-point attempts (20th). The Dons average 53.5% from the field (43rd) and should be enough to put pressure on the visitor’s defense.

Defensively, the Dons allow 65.7 points (59th) in 29 games played. They have an outstanding three-point shooting defense as the squad holds opponents to 29.0% from the arc. The side also boasts solid defensive rebounding numbers at 25.6 boards per game to complete the 38.0 total rebounds (41st). Although they are behind Gonzaga and its 30.7 rebounds (first) per game, their rebounding presence should be enough to relieve weight off the team’s shoulders.
