Few teams faced as tough a stretch down the final five games as the Syracuse Orange, who had three games of five on the road, including one at North Carolina. The two home games were only against Duke and Virginia, both of whom rank in the top five nationally. Is Syracuse prim to air it out as 7 point favorites at home? DJ gives his college basketball prediction!

Saint Mary’s has a legitimate chance to earn an NCAA bid by either winning or playing tough against Gonzaga in its third opportunity against the Bulldogs. Gonzaga, on the other hand, likely has a No. 1 seed locked up no matter what it does against the Gaels. In a game like this, where one incredible performance can lead to a fantastic reward, it sometimes happens that a lesser team pulls out a fantastic showing and pulls the upset. It hasn’t happened often against Gonzaga, which has claimed 16 of the past 20 titles in the WCC tournament, but it has happened.
This has been a season that Wofford has been building toward, but not even the Terriers coaching staff thought that they’d be this good that they likely don’t have to worry about this game. Wofford is likely looking at a single-digit seed if it can get a win here, and that’s because the Terriers have taken care of business against the teams they should beat. With sportsbooks sitting on opening this line until the last moment, what number gives bettors value for tonight’s match-up?” Dan Jamison gives his prediction.
Gonzaga hasn’t played since March 2 against Saint Mary’s. By the time this game tips off, the Bulldogs will have been idle for nine days while the Waves have been in action and gotten themselves comfortable with playing in Orleans Arena. This sometimes means that the underdog is able to build momentum and hang with the favorite for longer than it should.
