The Gonzaga Bulldogs will look to add to their 83-63 dismantling of UCLA in their last game. Drew Timme leads the Bulldogs in scoring with 18.7 PPG along with 5 RPG while Julian Strawther has 14.3 PPG with 5.7 RPG and Chet Holmgren’s got 13.2 PPG and a team-high 6. RPG and 3 APG as well this season.

Duke is 2-10-1 ATS in their last 13 Friday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games. Gonzaga is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games as an underdog while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 Friday games.
Get your popcorn in hand because this is going to be a heavyweight fight. Two loaded teams from top to bottom and that’s me stating the obvious. Gonzaga has not only Drew Timme, but has added Chet Holmgren to the mix and the guy can flat out ball. On the other side, I think Paolo Banchers gives the Zags all they can handle. Give me the over in this game as I see this one easily going over 160.
