PICK: pinnacle @ -9 GONZ (-106)
DATE: March 10, 2020 - 9:00 PM
STAR RATING: 9.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Win (900) - Final Score GONZ 84 at SMC 66
At 9 pm, our selection is on the Gonzaga Bulldogs minus the points over St. Mary's. The West Coast Conference should just give the Bulldogs a bye into the final game. After all, this is the 20th season in a row that Gonzaga has reached the title game. And the Bulldogs have gone 15-5 in those games (but 15-3 straight-up and 12-6 ATS if one eliminates the two title games played on their opponent's home court). The Gaels, once again, had a great regular season. But they've never done well in the post-season, and especially not when matched-up against the better teams. Indeed, St. Mary's is 1-12 ATS as an underdog of 5+ points in the post-season. Likewise, the Gaels are 12-28 ATS vs. foes that have a scoring margin of 5+ points. Finally, the Bulldogs fall into 41-6, 102-51 and 18-2 ATS systems of mine. Take Gonzaga. 9* play. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
