The Morning Line & Bet Splits: Saint Mary’s vs. BYU, San Francisco vs. Gonzaga, Wofford vs. ETSU

We’ll decide one ticket to the dance tonight, and the WCC begins to shake out

The WCC semifinals take center stage tonight, as the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in that league in Gonzaga and BYU finally get on the court thanks to the league’s double-bye system.

The Zags draw the No. 4 San Francisco Dons, who they beat by four on the road, and 27 at home in the regular season. A loss tonight could put their No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament in jeopardy, but they’re likely safe either way. For now, the Zags are getting 77% of the bets and 82% of the cash at DraftKings Sportsbook while laying 13 points for tonight’s game in Las Vegas

BYU faces a much stiffer test in the Saint Mary’s Gaels, who is likely in the tournament no matter the results tonight. The Gaels won this event last year, and shoot 38.8% from three-point range as a team. The line has moved from -3 to -4.5 at DK, with 57% of the bets but only 35% of the handle on the Cougars.

And for the SoCon championship, the Wofford Terriers face the East Tennessee State Buccaneers, who might make the field as an at-large even with a loss. The Buccaneers are 29-4, but only 1-1 in Quadrant 1 games. It’s a tough ask with that light a schedule, but it’s not impossible.
