Santa Clara Broncos
This is nearly a thirty-point spread, according to the metrics available at KenPom but Santa Clara has shown some improvement in the latter stages of the first half of the season.
The Broncos started 0–4, including losses to Washington at Minnesota. It lost to USC to drop to 1-5 but since then, it’s gone 7–1, including a win over USC the second time around and Washington State. The only loss came by two points to Idaho.
None of those seven wins, or even the loss, came in a true road game, though. In fact, the Broncos have only played two true road games this season, both in the state of California.
They’re getting crushed in the season-long turnover battle and have given up a ton of free throws to opponents. That’s not a good combination heading into the Kennel Club.
The Zags have played four games since losing back-to-back to Tennessee and North Carolina and the results are as follows: thirty-four over Texas-Arlington, sixty-one over Denver, forty-five over North Alabama and thirty-five over Cal Bakersfield.
And more help is on the way. Geno Crandall, the talented graduate transfer from North Dakota, who hasn’t played since before Thanksgiving, was available against Bakersfield but didn’t play. Killian Tillie, whom I mention every time I get a Gonzaga game, hasn’t played yet this season after off-season foot surgery but could play in this game, according to reports.
Mark Few is certainly going to ease Tillie into action, likely off the bench, and this could be the ideal game to begin that process, at the start of conference play against a cupcake.
Tillie is the game-changer. If he comes back healthy, make no bones about it, Gonzaga is a National Title contender. Without him, Rui Hachimura probably isn’t a strong enough leader yet to take his team all the way there.

Free Santa Clara Broncos vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction: party at the Kennel Club.
This one will get into the 20s (in terms of margin), which will only put you in position to cover with another little run, I imagine. Tough game to bet.
