10 loss team vs. a 1 loss team.  Seems easy, right?  Take the Zags.  But not so fast.  SC's D is for real and they're on a heater right now, playing their best when it matters most.  A 4-5 point line might entice me to take Gonzaga, but if you can get 7 I think the Gamecocks are the play.

@jwadd. I agree bud .Just hoping Cocks best player is ready to go.He had high temps n a fever but did pratice yesterday and claims he's good to go.

Gamecocks are:

    4-0 ATS in their last 4 NCAA Tournament games.
    4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog between 0.5 to 6.5 points.
    38-38-1 ATS in their last 57 non-conference games.
    21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 neutral site games.

Bulldogs are:

    1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 NCAA Tournament games as a favorite.
    19-6-3 ATS last 28 as a favorite of 0.6-6.5

South Carolina had not made it past the second round of the NCAA Tournament since 1973

South Carolina has trailed 3 times in 4  so far in the tourney in the first half. Can they do it again if they fall behind to this powerhouse Bulldogs team ?

Bulldogs have more tourney experience and the better offense along with good defense but i sthink these pts are still too much. They should win but Cocks cover.

Keep it simple with this game. You have a team in the Zags that play better defense than SC and they are taller = more contested shots for SC who are ranked a measly 291st in field goal percentage. That should hold true here. Zags are 2nd in field goal %. SC has had a week off as well. I truly feel they will come out cold today and Zags D doesn't help. Reality strikes. Lay the points. Get paid. Good luck.

Gonzaga covers.   There's a lot of money keeping this line up so I will chase.   Also Ganzaga stats are better on  offense and defense.  The line still seems a little high though.
