Kentucky vs Gonzaga Prediction & Pick

There's no way around it. Gonzaga has come clear issues they need to address if they want to get back to competing with the best of the best. Sloppy turnovers lead to easy buckets for the other team more often than not. However, they have one major advantage heading into Sunday night.

The Bulldogs have won 51 straight home games and scored 104 points during their only game played at Spokane Arena this season. Kentucky is forced to travel across the country and Oscar Tshiebwe is still not at full health. That gives the Wildcats much less of a chance to slow Timme down in the paint.

Final Score Prediction: Kentucky: 76 | Gonzaga: 82

Kentucky vs Gonzaga Best Bet

Kentucky has a shot to pull off the small upset here if it can control the area around the rim on both sides of the court. That makes turning your attention toward the point total a smart move. The total has hit the over in four of Kentucky's last five games as well as in five of Gonzaga's last seven games.

Each of these offenses are averaging at least 80.0 points per game and shoot at least 49.0% from the floor. With stars like Timme, Tshiebwe, Julian Strawther and CJ Fredrick ready to go, the ball should be moving up and down the court at a blistering pace on Sunday night. Get ready for some fireworks.
