Dan Karpuc: Washington +16.5 at Gonzaga
No. 18 Gonzaga (6-3 SU) is just 2-7 ATS, while Washington (7-2 SU) checks in at 5-4 ATS. Over the last two seasons, the Huskies have gone 14-6 ATS versus teams that have outscored their opponents by 4.0 or more points per game. Since Gonzaga has outscored opponents by an average of 6.1 points per contest, this trend is active. Do I expect Gonzaga to win outright? Yes. But do I expect Washington to keep this close? Also yes.

Lucy Burdge: Washington +16.5 at Gonzaga

Washington (5-4 ATS) has covered the spread in four of the last five games, while Gonzaga (2-7 ATS) has failed to cover in their last five, so I like Washington to cover here on the road. A trend in Washington’s favor here is that Mark Few is just 73-94 ATS after four straight games forcing opponents to commit 14 or fewer turnovers while coaching Gonzaga. So I think Washington has a great chance to cover the spread here.

Kate Constable: Fordham -12.5 vs. Binghamton

Record-wise, Fordham (9-1) has the edge over Binghamton (3-6), and the Rams have the edge in nearly every statistical category too. They are a much stronger defensive team than the Bearcats, giving up 66.3 points compared to Binghamton’s 73.3. Fordham is the better shooting team and is great at getting to the line and knocking down free throws. They also have the edge in blocks and steals, which will be key because the Bearcats are very turnover-prone. There is just no other way for me to look at this game other than backing the Rams.
