The ninth ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs go on the road to face the 22nd ranked Washington Huskies on Sunday. This is the first of three straight games against ranked opponents for the Bulldogs, as the play 12th ranked Arizona and seventh ranked North Carolina in their next two games. Gonzaga is coming off a 101-62 victory over Texas Southern. The Huskies are coming off their fifth straight win, a 90-80 victory over Eastern Washington.

Bulldogs look to keep offense rolling

The Gonzaga Bulldogs placed seven players in double figures against Texas Southern, including all five starters. It was their second game in which they have gone over 100 points and their fifth of over 90 points. Corey Kispert led the way for the Bulldogs with 17 points and Joel Ayayi scored 16 points in the rout. It was their first game after their first loss of the season, an 82-64 loss to Michigan.

"We wanted to come back from the loss," sophomore forward Filip Petrusev said on espn.com. "That was our first loss since last year."

Gonzaga averages 86.2 points per game, which is fifth-best in the country. Seven players average over nine points per game, led by Petrusev, who averages 15.7 points and a team-leading 8.4 rebounds per game. Kispert and Killian Tillie are next, averaging 13.6 and 13.4 points per game, respectively. The Bulldogs shoot 50.2% from the floor, which is tied for 11th best in the nation, and 39.2% from three-point range.

Huskies look for upset against Bulldogs

The Washington Huskies enter its battle against Gonzaga ranked 22nd in the country. They are fresh off a 90-80 win over Eastern Washington, which ran their home record to 6-0 on the season. Quade Green led the Huskies with 20 points and eight assists for the game. He was one of six players in double figures in points. Jaden McDaniels scored 17 points in the victory. Washington shot 46.6% from the floor and 33.3% from three-point range.

Isaiah Stewart leads the Huskies averaging 16.6 points per game. McDaniels is next at 15.0 points per game, while Nahziah Carter puts in 14.6 points per game. Washington, as a team, scores 72.9 points per game, while shooting 45.8% from the floor and 30.7% from three-point range.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are 8-2 ATS versus Washington in their last 10 meetings. They are averaging over 13 points per game more than the Huskies. I don’t think that Washington will be able to keep up with Gonzaga offensively. Gonzaga is fifth in scoring, 11th in field-goal percentage, and 12th and rebounding in the country. The Bulldogs also have one of the best defenses in the country. They are giving up only 63.9 points per game and they hold opponents to just 40.2% shooting. Washington also has a good defense, holding teams to just 62.2 points per game and 38.4% shooting, but I think the firepower of Gonzaga will win out in this one.

Prediction: Gonzaga -2

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Gonzaga is averaging over 86 points per game and have gone over 90 points five times and over 100 points twice. Washington is coming off of a 90 point performance and is averaging almost 73 points per game. Both teams are in the top two-fifths in pace of play, so they both like to push the ball a little bit. Both teams shoot over 45% from the floor. This is going to be a high scoring, fast paced game. Take the over in this one.

Prediction: Over 144.5
