What to know about the Gonzaga Bulldogs (27-3)
Bulldogs vs. Tigers betting odds for Gonzaga: TBD
For a brief minute, the No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs looked out of sync during their first-round game against the Georgia State Panthers. However, the Bulldogs adjusted in the second half to turn their mere two-point halftime lead to a 93-72 rout of the Panthers.
Dropping 93 points at the end of a contest that they were expected to win big is a terrific sign for the Zags, who’ve scored 80 or more points in 10 of their last 12 victories. The highest-scoring team in the nation got monstrous efforts from their two big stars in Drew Timme and Chet Holmgren, who combined for 53 points and 30 rebounds. Although Gonzaga converted over 50 percent of their field-goal attempts, the team could still improve from deep after knocking down just five of 18 shots from beyond the arc (27.8 percent).
What to know about the Memphis Tigers (22-10)
Bulldogs vs. Tigers betting odds for Memphis: TBD
With a superb 64-53 win over the eighth-seeded Boise State Broncos, the Memphis Tigers have come alive at the right time following their mediocre start to the season. They’ve now won 13 of their last 15 games, as head coach and former NBA fan favorite Penny Hardaway is proving that his squad is not just all about his name value.
Coveted freshman center Jalen Duren was a force in the paint against the Broncos, finishing with a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds. The Tigers’ defense was all the more exceptional, as they held Boise State to just 31.5 percent field-goal shooting whilst forcing 15 turnovers as well. The Zags are a different offensive beast compared to the Broncos, but there’s still optimism to be hand for these feisty Tigers that have cranked up their defensive efforts of late.

What’s your Gonzaga vs. Memphis prediction?
There’s no reason to believe just yet that Gonzaga is no longer the heavy favorite to win the entire tournament after their huge win in the first round. Then again, another slow start for the Zags could leave the door open for Memphis to cover the spread as relatively heavy underdogs, at the very least.
