The Chicago State Cougars and the Gonzaga Bulldogs meet in college basketball action from the McCarthey Athletic Center on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Gonzaga is listed as a 27.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 152.5 points.
Chicago State doesn’t have anyone new on their injury report while Gonzaga has Efton Reid III listed as questionable for this game with a lower body injury.
These two teams have not met on the hardwood prior to this game.
Chicago State is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 road games against a team with a winning home record. Gonzaga is 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games following an ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall.
I’m backing Gonzaga here. This is a huge number though, and one I’m probably not messing with, but the Zags do their best work at home and have piled on top of far less than what they’re against here. The concern is that Gonzaga looks past the Cougars here and has an emotional letdown after their big win over Saint Mary’s, but the Zags are too talented for that. Give me the Zags by 30+.
