The Baylor Bears have taken it to the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the first half of the NCAA National Championship Game in Indianapolis. The Bears led by as much as 19 during the first half, and some dominating defense from the underdogs is why the score is 47-37 at halftime.

The Bears have been white hot from long range, shooting 7-12 from three-point range. MaCio Teague leads all scorers with 14 points, and they’ve held the Zags to just 1-6 from downtown.

Here is the opening second half line from DraftKings Sportsbook. It opened at 7.5, but has since moved to 8.

Point spread: Gonzaga -7.5

Point total: Over/Under 83
