The Toreros are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The Bulldogs are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
San Diego is a brutal offensive team that's going to have trouble keeping up with the Bulldogs. Not to mention Gonzaga is coming off a upset loss, so the focus and anger will be there. I like the home team in a blowout.
