Elite Eight March Madness Odds: UConn Vs Gonzaga Betting Analysis & Prediction

Elite Eight March Madness Odds: UConn Vs Gonzaga Betting Analysis & Prediction

Once we get to the Elite 8 in March Madness, we are usually at the point where there is very little between the teams going head-to-head. It is only the best of the best who survive the opening 3 rounds, so it makes sense that the spread odds tend to be very tight once we get to this stage of the proceedings. While we wait for the final 4 games in the Sweet 16 to be played, we can look ahead to Saturday and the 2 games that are already waiting to go in this round. The late game of the two is an absolute beauty, with a pair of tournament masters set to lock horns in what should be a fantastic tilt. As we mentioned, the bookies have this one as close, with the Huskies in as a mild 2-point favorite right now in the NCAA basketball odds. The point total for this one is currently set at 153 ½.

Why bet on the UConn Huskies

While some teams have had to battle and claw to get to this stage of the tournament, you have to say that the Huskies have made things look rather easy. Their average margin of victory per game through the opening 3 rounds of the tournament is over 20 points, so they have not really been forced to break too much of a sweat to this point. I think it goes without saying that they covered the spread in all 3 games thus far, which also means that they have now covered in 8 of their last 10 games overall. This is team that is absolutely rolling, but I also think its fair to say that this one might be their toughest game in a minute. These teams have met in the past and have evenly split their 4 meetings. The UNDER has hit in 5 of the last 7 for UConn.

Why bet on the Gonzaga Bulldogs

While the UConn Huskies have breezed into the Elite 8, the Bulldogs have had to battle every inch of the way, which actually might prove to be beneficial, as it will have made this group a little more battle-hardened and ready for a tougher challenge. They failed to cover as the favorite in the opening 2 rounds of the tournament, which included holding off a game TCU team for an 84-81 win. They almost gassed it in the Sweet 16, but were able to hold on a take out UCLA by a score of 79-76, where they finally covered the spread. One thing that really jumps out here is the Bulldogs record against teams from the Big East, where they have won 10 of the last 11. They have covered in 6 of their last 10 overall, with the OVER hitting in 10 of their last 13 overall.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Bulldogs record versus the Big East is just one of the reasons why I think they are a good SU bet here. I also think they will do more than enough to cover the spread and move on to the Elite 8, although I believe the total will fall UNDER. UConn Huskies 70 Gonzaga Bulldogs 76
