Gonzaga (-15.5) over Grand Canyon

It’s chic to deride the Zags for dominating the West Coast Conference and falling short in the NCAA Tournament — ignoring the team’s pair of recent title game appearances, non-conference success against power conferences and improbable rise from anonymity in a recruiting wasteland — but Few’s teams tend to flex their muscles in the first round.

In the past three tournaments, the Zags have won their opening-round games by an average of 34 points.

Betting on College Basketball?

Entering this tournament with significantly less pressure than recent years, Gonzaga’s latest top-ranked offense could hit triple digits against the overmatched Antelopes.
