Betting on the San Diego Toreros (odds)
Record: 2-7 Overall / 1-4 Conference
San Diego is scheduled to meet Gonzaga for just the Toreros’ second game since January, as the Toreros program had to pause their season due to COVID-19 issues. The Toreros will make their return to action this Thursday against the Santa Clara Broncos and regardless of what happens in that game, they will still be bracing for impact in the rematch against Gonzaga. The Toreros lost to Gonzaga 90-62 on Jan. 28 at home. San Diego simply didn’t have the firepower to keep up with the Bulldogs’ offense, though Finn Sullivan was able to finish with 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field, including four3-pointers. Still, San Diego needs to at least increase their aggressiveness, as they only went to the foul line eight times in that game.
San Diego, which is averaging 65.0 points per game heading into the meeting with Santa Clara, is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven encounters with the Bulldogs.
Betting on the Gonzaga Bulldogs (odds)
Record: 20-0 Overall / 11-0 Conference
Gonzaga wants to end its regular-season schedule with a loud statement – and undefeated, of course. The Bulldogs will take on the Saint Mary’s Gaels first this Thursday before preparing for the Toreros, but with Gonzaga, you pretty much have an idea of what you are going to see from them every game. Gonzaga’s offense overpowers opponents and leaves them crushed beyond recognition. Gonzaga is No. 1 in the nation in scoring with 93.0 points per game on 55.1 field goal percentage. No one has put the clamps on the Bulldogs’ attack this season, and it’s unlikely that it’ll be the Toreros who’ll be the first to do it, considering that they got walloped in the first meeting with Gonzaga. In that game, Gonzaga shot 57.6 percent from the field and made 26 of 40 attempts from inside the arc. Drew Timme dominated and scored 21 points against San Diego, while Corey Kispert scored 19 points to go with eight rebounds.
Gonzaga is 4-2 against the spread in its last six home games against San Diego.
Gonzaga wins, 95-67.
