The 2022-23 NCAA Women's Tournament continues with a first-round Seattle 4 matchup between the No. 9 Gonzaga Bulldogs and No. 8 Ole Miss Rebels.

Despite being the WCC's top-ranked team, Gonzaga fell short of winning the conference championship with a 64-60 loss to Portland in the finals. Meanwhile, Ole Miss is coming off an embarrassing 80-51 blowout loss to South Carolina in the SEC Tournament semifinals.

Which one will advance to the next round? Let's find out.

Gonzaga vs Ole Miss Odds & Spread

Ole Miss enters this contest as a slim favorite on the moneyline and spread per FanDuel Sportsbook's odds. This 10 p.m. ET clash also features an over/under of 125.5 points with the over being favored at -114 odds.

Gonzaga vs Ole Miss Prediction & Pick

Gonzaga is one of the scariest teams in the country from three-point range. The Bulldogs sink an average of 8.0 threes (T-No. 39) on an NCAA-leading 41.5% success rate. While they'll be in good shape if they hit their shots, it won't be easy as Ole Miss holds opponents to 25.5% shooting from beyond the arc (No. 9).

Ole Miss' offense might not be as strong as its opponent, but it also doesn't need to be. The Rebels win games with defense. Sure, they allowed South Carolina to score 80, but the Gamecocks are the country's best team. In the three games before that loss, the Rebels only allowed a 59.7 PPG clip.

Hungry to make it past the first round for the first time since 2007, look for Ole Miss to get back on track with a hard-fought defensive win.

Final Score Prediction: Ole Miss: 70 | Gonzaga: 68

Gonzaga vs Ole Miss Best Bet

For the best bet, I'm sticking with Ole Miss on the moneyline. At -132 odds, there's still some solid value to be had with an outright victory. The Rebels have the tools to shut down Gonzaga and will make life hard for the Bulldogs on the perimeter from the get-go.

Bet: Ole Miss ML (-132)
