West Coast Conference play continues as the undefeated Gonzaga Bulldogs head to Utah to take on the Cougars of Brigham Young University.
BYU has played well, with four wins over the last six games, and will have a lot to deal with in the Bulldogs. A victory for the Cougars will be no easy feat.
Only one undefeated team in the nation remains and it just so happens to be Mark Few’s Gonzaga Bulldogs. Gonzaga is brilliant on both sides of the ball, ranking 12th in the nation in points per game and 9th in the nation in opponents’ points per game.
Gonzaga scores about 85.2 points per game and is led by junior guard Nigel Williams-Goss. He’s having a great year, averaging 14.8 points per game. He also shoots a very efficient 49.4% from the field.
He’s had some amazing performances including a 36-point game against San Francisco and a 25-point night against San Diego.
Polish center Przemek Karnowski has been a great presence in the post for Gonzaga. He’s averaging 12.5 points per game on 61.5% shooting. He also averages 5.4 rebounds per game and grabs a block per game.
Defensively, Gonzaga gives up just 61.4 points per game.
The team has only given up more than 64 points to one WCC opponent, San Francisco, who scored 80 on the Bulldogs.
BYU plays some good basketball, especially on offense. The team is 7-3 in the WCC, putting it 3rd in the conference.
On offense, BYU scores about 82.6 points per game, good for 22nd in the nation. The offense is led by sophomore forward Eric Mika.
Mika averages nearly a double-double with 20.8 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. He has been an extremely integral part of this team and shoots the ball well. He’s shooting 55% from the field on about 13 attempts per night.
Mika will need a huge game against Gonzaga in order to give the Cougars a chance to win.
Guard Nick Emery will need to play well, also. Emery is averaging 13.9 points per game and is also a good defender. He grabs about two steals per game.
Speaking of defense, this has been BYU’s weak spot. The team gives up 73 points per game and will probably give up more than that to a potent offense like Gonzaga’s.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Gonzaga is 3-2 ATS in the last five games
- The OVER is 3-2 in BYU’s last five games
Free Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. BYU Cougars NCAAB Prediction:
Gonzaga has yet to lost a game this year and it won’t happen against the BYU Cougars. Gonzaga gets the W on the road.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gonzaga -11.5
Gonzaga is one of the best teams in the country and has blown out every WCC opponent it has faced this season. I think Gonzaga will cover the 11.5 point spread against a BYU defense that gives up a lot of points.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Gonzaga 79 – BYU 66
