Gonzaga vs. UCLA (145')

By Trace Adams, Featured Handicapper

I was on the wrong side of things last night in the NIT, as my 1500♦ release on Vanderbilt got clipped by UAB in Nashville.

Time to zone in and take care of business in this round of 16 as things in the dance resume on Thursday.

We have college winners to hand out tonight, tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday, and when I say winners, I mean WINNERS!

Now let's dance!!!

Thursday's free play comes from the heart of Sin City as I play this highly-anticipated Gonzaga-UCLA meeting to hold Under the posted total.

The Zags did land Over the total their last time out in their 84-81 win against TCU, but their previous 3 games had all held Under the posted total.

The Bruins have actually played BOTH of their tournament games Over the posted price, but Mick Cronin's team is only allowing 60.2 points per game for the season, and the Bruins know that if they are to advance to Saturday's Elite Eight, they simply cannot allow the Bulldogs to come anywhere close to their 87.3 points per game that they average.

These teams do have a relatively recent history of meetings that can be explored, as this Thursday night's showdown will be the 5th overall meeting between the schools since 2015 - 2 of the meetings in this very tournament. The Under is 3-1 in those 4 previous showdowns, and I will play the Under again tonight at T-Mobile Arena.
