St. Mary's Gaels vs Gonzaga Bulldogs WCC Conference Title Basketball Odds & Expert Picks

Time: 9:00 PMET
Date: Tuesday, March 12, 2019
Where: Orleans Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
Watch on: ESPN
Spread: Gonzaga -15
Moneyline: N/A
Total O/U: 136

The top-ranked and No. 1 seed Gonzaga Bulldogs were all in about taking a no-prisoners attitude in their semifinals against the Pepperdine Waves. Often overlooked because of their affiliation with the West Coast Conference much like every other schools treading their crafts on the Western front of the nation, the Bulldogs toppled the Waves by 26 points on Monday but will still look for the respect they desperately deserve despite their dominance. Gonzaga has claimed six straight WCC conference title and only the Saint Mary’s Gaels, who have basically been their only true nemesis in the conference, have chinked their armor through the years and will have another crack at unseating the Bulldogs when the two sides square off in the finals on Tuesday and live from the Orleans Arena in Paradise, Nevada.

Practically assured of a No 1 seed when the NCAA Tournament will begin next week, the Bulldogs will benefit from a full week off after they confirmed their supremacy over the Gaels on Tuesday because, make no mistake about it, they will win and easily. The Bulldogs have claimed seven of their last eight contests against the Gaels while going 7-1 against the line during that stretch. Gonzaga imposed their will against the Gaels this season when they ridiculed Saint Mary’s by 48 points in the first meeting before beating them 69-55 in their regular season finale back on March 2. The Bulldogs’ two losses this season came at the hands of Tennessee and North Carolina with both games on the road but people forget that they beat Duke back in November as an 8-point underdog.

Predictions:
The Bulldogs ended the conference season barely getting tested. They outscored the opposition by 27 points per game to set a WCC record and haven't played a game decided by single digits since losing by 3 points at the Volunteers on Dec. 9. No team has dominated like the Bulldogs all season as Gonzaga trailed in the second half in just two games in conference play for a total of 42 seconds. The Gaels have lost 35 of 36 against Top-10 teams with their only win coming against Villanova back in 2010 and just dont have the arsenal to compete against their conference rivals. Gonzaga will look to enter the NCAA tournament with a statement win in the books and you can bet they will deliver. Take Bulldogs -15 and the over.
