The No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs (+900 to win the national title) are simply throwing their weight around in the West Coast Conference, and no one is touching them there. Up next for them is a home game against the Loyola Marymount Lions (+100000), who already lost to Gonzaga this season. Will see the Lions pull off a shocker, though?

Betting on the Loyola Marymount Lions (8-15 Overall / 2-7 Conference)
Loyola Marymount’s season sank lower in the West Coast Conference standings after taking a 68-67 home loss at the hands of the Pepperdine Waves over the weekend. It was the Lions third loss in a row and seventh in eight games. The Lions had already faced Gonzaga this season, which resulted in a predictable 87-62 loss at home on Jan. 11. They also failed to cover the spread as an 18.5-point home underdog. If anything, Loyola Marymount managed to beat the 3-point spread as home ‘dogs in the Pepperdine game. Guard Eli Scott is carrying a heavy burden, especially on offense, for Loyola Marymount, which is averaging 63.7 points per game this season. Scott leads the Lions with 15.7 points per game. He’s the only one on the team averaging in double-digit scoring. He had 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting against Gonzaga.
The Lions are 3-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games overall.
Betting on the Gonzaga Bulldogs (23-1 Overall / 9-0 Conference)
If Gonzaga was growing bored of its own dominance in the WCC, it surely got a nice jolt to keep it grounded and focused on the goal to win a national title after winning a close one against the San Francisco Dons on the road last Saturday, 83-79. The Bulldogs trailed San Francisco at the half by eight points before flexing their muscle in the final 20 minutes of the game, during which they outscored San Francisco by 12 points. At the end of the day, Filip Petrusev and Drew Timme were too much for San Francisco, as the two scored 23 and 19 points, respectively, while Joel Ajayi had 12 points. The Bulldogs didn’t have forward Killian Tille, who was sidelined by an ankle injury, and he could afford an extra day of rest by sitting out the rematch against Loyola Marymount. Petrusev seems to be very much capable of leading the team against the Lions. In the first meeting this season with Loyola Marymount, the Bulldogs shot 52.5 percent from the field and outrebounded the Lions, 41-23.
The Bulldogs are 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games at home.
Gonzaga wins, 85-62.
