What to know about the Gonzaga Bulldogs (26-3)

Bulldogs vs. Panthers betting odds for Gonzaga: -23

Despite absorbing a loss in the WCC regular-season finale, the Bulldogs still received a No. 1 seed in the Big Dance. There’s hardly any doubt that Gonzaga is among the truly elite teams in the nation. With arguably the best frontcourt in college basketball this season, there should be no problem scoring in the paint. Drew Timme and Chet Holmgren can have their way against Georgia State, which has not dealt with such a talented duo at any point so far this season. Gonzaga is well-coached and has an overpowering offense that is generating almost 90 points per game. Mark Few should not be breaking a sweat in this contest.

What to know about the Georgia State Panthers (18-10)

Bulldogs vs. Panthers  betting odds for Georgia State: +23

Georgia State is going dancing thanks to the Panthers winning the Sun Belt Conference Tournament title. The Panthers were only third in the conference standings at the end of the regular season, but they were on a roll heading into the postseason. In fact, Georgia State has not lost in 10 games. Say what you want to say about their strength of schedule, but at least the Panthers have great momentum entering the National Tournament. Defense is the calling card of Georgia State, which held opposing teams to just 67.2 points per game in the regular season. The Panthers are not going to absolutely stop Gonzaga’s offense, but they will have their fair share of success on the defensive end of the court.

What’s your Gonzaga vs. Georgia State prediction?

Things are not looking good for Georgia State. Gonzaga is simply too powerful and too talented when juxtaposed against Georgia State. The Panthers will hang with Gonzaga in the early goings and might even be trailing the Bulldogs by only single digits at the half, but it will be an entirely different story in the second half where Few’s squad will turn it on and break away on its way to a landslide victory.
