BYU At Gonzaga Odds, Betting Pick & TV Info
We always tend to measure the greatness of a team in terms of wins and losses, but the reality is that it’s championships that really count. You think of the record breaking Golden State Warriors of last year or the New England Patriots that went unbeaten in the regular season and you often forget about those accomplishments because it was a different team that ended up being the champion in those seasons. This is the predicament that the Gonzaga Bulldogs find themselves in right now, as they are on the brink of putting together an unbeaten regular season. They have a game against San Diego about to get underway as I write, and then they will finish off their regular season by welcoming in the BYU Cougars on Saturday night. While the building is sure to be rocking, everyone in attendance will be aware that an unbeaten season would just be the first step towards a much bigger goal.

Why bet on the BYU Cougars
It would be easy to simply write the Cougars off heading into this one, but let’s not forget that this is a team that has put together double digit wins in conference play. The strike that goes against them here, though, is that they have yet to beat a ranked opponent this season. That said, they may be able to take advantage of some early jitters if the Bulldogs come out a little tight in their quest to go unbeaten. BYU has had their struggles on the road, going just 3-4 straight up, whilst also going just 2-5 ATS. They made a game of it in their last meeting with Gonzaga, losing 85-75, although that one was in their own building.
Why bet on the Gonzaga Bulldogs
If truth be told, the Gonzaga Bulldogs haven’t really ever looked as though they were going to lose any of their previous 28 games, and it’s hard to start betting against them now. Yes, there will be those who will argue that their schedule was not as tough as what other teams have had to deal with, but the Bulldogs have not had one of those off nights that might have seen them lose to a lesser opponent. This is a team that looks determined to go unbeaten, and when you have that level of confidence, you make it tough for anyone that has to face you. The Bulldogs have been a good bet whichever way you play them this season, as they entered Thursday night with a 10-2 ATS record on home court.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
As I finish this piece up, I see that Gonzaga have already jumped all over San Diego in a big way in the Thursday night game, making it look as though this one is going to be for the unbeaten record. I think they will pull it off quite comfortably.
