Saint Mary's-California vs. Gonzaga, 02/09/2019 22:00 EDT, Score: 46 - 94

Point Spread: +17/-104 Saint Mary's-California

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Loss

I recall St. Mary's upsetting Gonzaga, 74-71, as 7 1/2-point road 'dogs last season.

But while I'm not saying the Gaels can pull a similar upset in Spokane this season, I do believe they can hang in and that this line is inflated based on Gonzaga winning 13 in a row with many of those victories occurring in blowout fashion.

The Gaels haven't lost a game in regulation by more than six points since Nov. 21.

The Bulldogs are the No. 1 scoring team in the nation. St. Mary's may be down from previous seasons, but the Gaels still are very good. They rank 21st in field goal percentage and surrender fewer than 67 points a game. Gaels' guard Jordan Ford leads the West Coast Conference in scoring at 22.1 points a game.
