It’s tough to find a reason not to back the Bulldogs even with this high of a spread. Gonzaga has one of the best offenses in the country, and San Diego’s biggest issue comes on the offensive end. The Bulldogs rank ninth in possessions per game, so they should have plenty of time to build a big lead on Thursday night.
