The No. 1 team in the land is going to be in action for the final time prior to the NCAA Tournament on Monday night in college basketball betting action, as the Gonzaga Bulldogs face off with the St. Mary’s Gaels for the third time this season in the WCC Final.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs have risen all the way to number two in the rankings. Gonzaga has been good every year, but Mark Few’s team has never been this high in the rankings before. Number one Indiana just lost earlier this week, and the Bulldogs could have a shot at getting to the number one spot if they win out in the regular season. Their biggest hurdle will be Tuesday night at BYU.
The Indiana Hoosiers are the best team in college basketball. They currently hold the No. 1 ranking in the top 25 college basketball polls and essentially a two game lead in the Big Ten Conference.
March is just a few weeks away and teams are gearing up for a strong finish to the month of February.

The college basketball season is all about riding momentum for some teams. The hot team going into the NCAA Tournament is the one to watch and wager on as the madness begins this March.

It’s a battle of West Coast Conference rivals when the #5 ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs travel to Saint Mary’s to take on the Gaels. Both teams come into this game red hot and atop the West Coast Conference standings.
There aren’t many games this time of year that truly will make a difference in the race for the NCAA Tournament. On Thursday night though, we have one of those games in the little known West Coast Conference, as the BYU Cougars take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs at the Kennel.
This game might not get the publicity that some do on the East Coast, but the St. Mary’s-Gonzaga rivalry has been about as good as any in the past few years. These two schools hate each other and it shows every time they meet on the basketball floor. Gonzaga is a top ten team right now, but St. Mary’s would love nothing more than to upset them on their home floor. Can they pull it off as a double digit underdog?
The next team to try their hand at the Kennel in NCAA basketball betting festivities comes to Spokane on Friday night, as the Gonzaga Bulldogs play host to the Baylor Bears.
First year Coach John Groce has the Illinois Fighting Illini off to a 9-0 start. Mark Few and the Gonzaga Bulldogs are also 9-0. The Fighting Illini are ranked 14th in the nation and Gonzaga is 10th in the nation. Groce did a great job with the Ohio Bobcats last year, and he is off to a great start with Illinois. Gonzaga has a great home court advantage and this should be a huge game between two unbeaten teams.
