Jermaine Jackson Jr. is leading the Chippewas with 14.3 points per game, 4.3 assist per game and a single steal. 

Gonzaga continued its series of tune-up games in preparation for UCLA and Duke next week in Las Vegas by defeating the Bellarmine Knights 92 – 50. Gonzaga was led by Drew Timme with 25 points, Julian Strawther with 19 points and 6 rebounds and Andrew Nembhard with 7 assists. Bellarmine led by impressive guard Dylan Penn with 14 points and 6 assists.

Drew Timme Averages 21 points and 5 rebounds for the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs put up close to 90 points per game and are shooting 55% from the field. I am personally not sure if his game can transfer well past this level, but he definetly has college basketball figured out as he is now the featured piece for the Bulldogs.

The Under is 6-1 in Bulldogs last 7 Monday games and is 4-1 in Bulldogs last 5 overall. The Bulldogs will get their buckets in this one, but will the Chippewas be able to keep up offensively? I think they can’t which lean towards the under in this contest. 

The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points and are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 neutral site games. 

The Chippewas are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600 and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. 

This is a large spread for the Bulldogs to cover, but I’ll lay the points as they are simply one of the best, if not the best, team in college basketball.
