Randy’s Free Pick

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are obviously the better team, and they could blow the doors off at home, but we’ve also seen them have issues covering numbers all season. Also, Loyola Marymount has been more than respectable, and that includes losing in the underdog role by an average of just 0.1 points. Loyola Marymount holds its own. Give me the points.
