Gonzaga vs. San Francisco Prediction

I’m on San Francisco in this game. The Bulldogs are solid, but they’re also not the same feared Gonzaga team of past seasons. The Zags have had some issues pulling away from the better teams in the WCC this season. You can beat on the dregs like Pacific and Portland all you want, but at some points you have to step it up and Gonzaga’s had trouble with that. The Dons are a really good team and playing at the Chase Center will likely give the Dons an added jolt that makes them live in this game. Give me the Dons and the points.
