How Good is Gonzaga?

Gonzaga had a disappointing regular season but they played better the last couple of weeks of the regular season and there is some hope for this team.

McNeese State vs Gonzaga Betting Prediction

I am still not sold on this Gonzaga team being that good, and they aren’t going to have the best game here. McNeese State is averaging 80.4 points per game and the Gonzaga defense has been awful all season. McNeese State is going to have no issue running up the score here, and Gonzaga’s defense is going to struggle to keep this game close. You aren’t going to need the points here with McNeese State. Back McNeese State on the money line.
