Gonzaga Bulldogs vs BYU Cougars 2/5/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #2 Gonzaga Bulldogs will meet with the BYU Cougars in a West Coast Conference clash in Marriott Center Provo, UT, on Saturday, February 5, 2022, at 10:00 PM (EST). Number two Gonzaga only dropped two matches so far this year, both to ranked opponents in non-conference play.

 

The Bulldogs are off to another strong start in the WCC, with double-digit victories in their first seven matches. They got off to a sluggish start in San Diego on Thursday, but it didn’t matter in the end, as they dominated the game, winning 92-62. Saint Mary’s and BYU were projected to be Gonzaga’s greatest league rivals, but the Gaels are now the only team within striking range.

 

They are now one match behind the leaders in the standings, with both head-to-head matchups scheduled for later this month. The Bulldogs, who are rated second in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency ratings, have as much offensive firepower as any team in the nation.

 

They’re also the country’s best shooters, ranking first in effective field goal percentage. Gonzaga’s lone offensive worry is their free-throw shooting, with the Bulldogs making only 70.6 percent of their free-throw attempts.

 

  • The University of Gonzaga Bulldogs is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • Gonzaga is 10-1 SU in their last 11 matches against BYU.
  • The total went OVER in 11 of Gonzaga’s last 14 matches in the West Coast Conference.

Gonzaga Bulldogs vs BYU Cougars Predictions 2/5/2022

 

Following a three-game losing run, BYU finds itself in the NCAA Tournament. If the Cougars can pull off an upset victory at home on Saturday night, they can put any doubts to rest. They started the year 17-4, with one of their defeats coming in a 110-84 thrashing against Gonzaga in mid-January.

 

BYU responded with victories in each of its following three matches, but it is now on a three-game losing streak. In all three games, the Cougars were favorites, including a 76-73 defeat to Pacific as 13-point favorites.

 

In their last five games, they failed to cover the spread. The Cougars are considerably superior on defense than they are on offense, ranking 61st in adjusted offensive efficiency.

 

Field goal percentage and turnover rate are both outside the top 150, which is concerning for a club with so much experience. On the offensive end, BYU’s strength is their rebounding, with the Cougars ranking 85th in offensive rebounding %.

 

  • The BYU Cougars are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of BYU’s last 7 matches against Gonzaga.
  • The Cougars are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 matches in the West Coast Conference.

#2 Gonzaga Bulldogs vs BYU Cougars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #2 Gonzaga Bulldogs. As great as an entertaining game to finish off an outstanding day of college basketball would be, I simply don’t see it happening.

 

In the first encounter, Gonzaga swept BYU off the court, and the Cougars are currently in horrible form. Throughout the evening, the Bulldogs will once again control the boards and get easy points in transition. They will not ignore BYU, as the Cougars are one of just a few squads in the conference with the potential to compete with them.

 

Gonzaga’s high-octane attack gives me a lot of confidence in putting up a huge number. The #2 Gonzaga Bulldogs will win to a predicted score of 80-68.
