The Chicago State Cougars (11-18) are being sacrificed to the No. 10 Gonzaga Bulldogs (25-5) In Spokane Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze Tipico Sportsbook’s lines around the Chicago State vs. Gonzaga odds, and make our expert college basketball picks, predictions and bets.
Rankings courtesy of theUSA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll.
Gonzaga is playing its 16th home game of the season and has only lost once at home. And it won’t lose on Wednesday. This will be a cakewalk game for the Bulldogs as they head into the WCC Tournament. Do not expect this game to be close. Even by halftime this game should be all but over.
Gonzaga ranks 1st in the nation in scoring at 87.4 points and will dismantle a Cougars team that averages – and allows – 70 points a game.

Chicago State at Gonzaga picks and predictions
Gonzaga 95, Chicago State 62
A -8000 on any wager is not good. Taking it in this game is the same thing. Do not waste your money on this wager or even adding it to a parlay as it will do nothing to help in any manner.

GONZAGA -27.5 (-110).
Drew Timme and Gonzaga will win this game easily. The only question is by how much they want to win.
The Bulldogs, at home, can name a score here. Chicago State does not have the athletes or the ability to keep this game close and the only way Gonzaga does not cover is if it decides to slow down. But I do not see this being the case as it is looking to get ready for tournament play.
If this number seems too large to wager on, I can understand. But do not wager on the +27.5 for Chicago State.
OVER 152.5 (-110).
With Gonzaga averaging more then 87 points a game, I am not worried about the Bulldogs ability to score. I am more worried about the Cougars’ ability to get enough points to get this game Over.
Gonzaga will run up and down the floor and the pace will be lightning quick. If Chicago State is able to do anything on offense, This one will easily go Over.
As long as the Cougars can get to 55, I see this game hitting the total. I will venture that the Bulldogs allow at least this to take place and the Over becomes the side to wager.
