We go over how you can watch Thursday’s Gonzaga-San Diego matchup, as well as what you should look out for from a betting perspective.

No. 1 Gonzaga is still unbeaten this season, and they’re off to the Slim Gym to visit lowly San Diego on Thursday for a West Coast Conference matchup. The Bulldogs have run through every team that’s stepped in front of them this year, and that’s likely to continue against the Toreros.

Gonzaga (15-0, 6-0) leads the country with 94.4 points per game thanks to its plethora of offensive weapons. Corey Kispert averages a team-high 20.6 points per game. He’s trailed by Drew Timme (18.5) and freshman phenom Jalen Suggs (13.9). All three of them can set the nets ablaze, and no school has had anything close to an answer for the trio this season.

San Diego (2-6, 1-3) is second to last in the conference standings. Joe Calcattera and Josh Parrish are the Toreros’ two leading scorers and average 26.6 points per game together, but that’s not nearly enough to keep up with Gonzaga.
