Bulldogs Betting Prediction
The Bulldogs had a slightly below average season last year by their standards, despite winning the West Coast Conference regular season for the 10th straight year. That may be the longest streak of any team, but St. Mary's arguably had the better team and the better season.
This year, the Zags must replace WCC player of the year Matt Bouldin, and Gonzaga believes it may have his replacement in point guard David Stockton, the son of former Gonzaga and Utah Jazz star John Stockton.
The Bulldogs added some size in the off season, signing 7 footer Kelly Olynyk and 6 foot 9 big man Sam Dower. A small line up featuring guards Marquise Carter, Demetri Goodson and Steven Gray should work well in the WCC, but may not fare as well against bigger high major teams. Gonzaga has reached 12 straight NCAA Tournaments and should make it 13 in a row this year.

As I have written numerous times in the past, line shopping is one of the most important parts of sports betting, and one of the biggest advantages to betting sports online in general. It is critical in the long term to have money in several different books, simply because all books offer different lines regularly. Even if the line is the same at two books, one may offer a reduced line because money is coming in differently at both sites.
