Gonzaga Bulldogs vs Texas Tech Red Raiders 12/18/2021 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #5 Gonzaga Bulldogs of the West Coast Conference vs #25 Texas Tech Red Raiders of the Big 12 Conference in Footprint Center Phoenix, AZ, on Saturday, at 1:00 PM (EST). Gonzaga did not play since beating Merrimack, 80-55.

 

The Bulldogs were set to face Washington on December 12. However, the match was suspended due to COVID procedures. The team’s break was approximately ten days long because of the cancellation followed by finals week at school. Drew Timme led the Bulldogs to victory over Merrimack with 22 points.

 

The All-American contender made all eight of his shots in the contest.  Freshman wonder, Chet Holmgren, had 15 points and 15 rebounds while Julian Strawther made 15 points for Gonzaga (8-2), which won 57 straight home wins, the longest in the country and a program record.

 

Merrimack, which is just in its third year as a division one club, kept the match close for much of the first half until Gonzaga pulled away in the second. The Zags outrebounded Merrimack 56-20 in the match, which the Warriors won.

 

Gonzaga did turn the ball over 17 times in the game, which Few recognizes as a problem. Few may find solace in the Zags’ 8-2 start and current Top 10 standing in college basketball. Gonzaga is ranked in the AP Top 25 for the previous 100 weeks, the longest active stretch in the country.

 

  • The University of Texas Tech Red Raiders is 8-1 SU in their last 9 matches.
  • Texas Tech is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches this season.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Texas Tech’s last 6 matches in the West Coast Conference.

Gonzaga Bulldogs vs Texas Tech Red Raiders Predictions 12/18/2021

 

Texas Tech defeated Arkansas State 75-62 at home, a week after defeating Tennessee in the Jimmy V Classic in New York. The Red Raiders are currently 8-1 on the season, with a close defeat at Providence.

 

With the win over Arkansas State, Texas Tech moved to 6-0 at home on the year. In the win, the Red Raiders shot a scorching 56 percent from the field. Kevin McCullar had 21 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists to pace the No. 25 Texas Tech Red Raiders to win. Adonis Arms had a season-high 15 points.

 

Texas Tech had a 45-28 halftime advantage and cruised to win. They outrebounded Arkansas State 36-21, dominated them 40-12 in the paint, and limited to 43% shooting. The Red Raiders’ journey to Arizona for the Jerry Colangelo Classic will be their third neutral-site match of the season. The team is 2-0 in its last two neutral-site matches.

 

  • The University of Gonzaga Bulldogs is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • Gonzaga is 8-2 SU in their last 10 matches this season.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Gonzaga’s last 8 matches in the Big 12 Conference.

#5 Gonzaga Bulldogs vs #25 Texas Tech Red Raiders. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Gonzaga Bulldogs. The Zags remain a strong contender for a #1 seed in the tournament as well as a favorite to return to the Final Four this year.

 

Coach Few was eager and able to fill Gonzaga’s early schedule with a plethora of Top 25 opponents. Gonzaga’s danger stems from the team’s capacity to do a few things incredibly well: shoot the ball efficiently, prevent their opponents from shooting efficiently, and rebound well on both ends.

 

Texas Tech is a quality Top 25 team that only dropped once this season and just defeated a tournament team, Tennessee. The Red Raiders gun the 3-point shot far better than Gonzaga. It is particularly well defended by the Zags. Texas Tech had a nice test against Tennessee, but Gonzaga is on another level. The Gonzaga Bulldogs will win to a predicted score of 79-69.
