Pepperdine Waves          

Colbey Ross - Pepperdine vs. Gonzaga BasketballSo far this season Pepperdine has posted a 16-17 record. In addition, the team is 6-10 in conference play so they’re having a real tough time measuring up in WCC. Seeing as how they’re facing the best team in the conference tonight, it’s easy to see why the college basketball betting odds are so lopsided here. After all, Pepperdine fails to measure up against Gonzaga both offensively and defensively. At the present time the Waves are averaging 75.7 points per game, which fails to live up to the 89.8 that Gonzaga is putting up. All in all things are just as lopsided on defense. Right now Gonzaga is allotting 64.9 per matchup while Pepperdine is giving up 73.6. The last time these two met the Bulldogs came out on top 92-64. All things considered, March Madness betting players should expect a similarly lopsided result tonight.

Players to Watch: Colbey Ross (19.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 7.2 apg), Kameron Edwards (14.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.0 apg), and Eric Cooper Jr.  (10.5 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 0.9 apg).

Gonzaga Bulldogs   

Rui Hachimura - Pepperdine vs. Gonzaga BasketballThe Bulldogs pounce into tonight’s action sporting a 29-2 record. Additionally, the Bulldogs are undefeated in conference play this season, boasting a 16-0 WCC record. With that in mind, it’s clear that Gonzaga is headed straight for a blowout win this evening. After all, the last time they faced Pepperdine they came out on top by nearly 30 points. And if that wasn’t enough, the Waves are 0-10 in their last 10 matchups against Gonzaga. All things considered, this is an extremely easy matchup to predict.

Players to Watch: Rui Hachimura (20.6 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 1.6 apg), Brandon Clarke (16.6 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 1.8 apg), and Zach Norvell Jr. (15.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 3.1 apg).
