Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play February 15th


#799 GONZAGA (-) over Pepperdine at 10 PM EST
Off a week of rest and a 30-point blowout win at St. Mary’s, Gonzaga will crank its game back up and do a number on Pepperdine this evening. The Waves enter this contest off a hard-fought three-point home win over the Toreros and this is going to be a difficult encore for head coach Lorenzo Romar’s kids.

A quick peek at the History Book shows that the Bulldogs have totally dominated this series posting a stunning 38-0 SU and 24-11-3 ATS record in the last 38 meetings. Also, in West Coast Conference play running the floor against a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, Gonzaga sports a reliable 115-74-3 ATS mark including a powerful 87-51-3 ATS provided the ‘Zags take the court with confidence off two or more straight up wins. Finally, on the regular season road competing with four or more days rest, head coach Mark Few’s boys hold an impressive 22-2 SU and 17-7 ATS tally.

This is not the best wagering situation for Pepperdine either. For starters, as a home dog priced at +9 or more, the Waves have crashed hard inking a woeful 8-18-2 ATS record. Also, inside Firestone Fieldhouse in Malibu facing an opponent that scoots in with confidence off two or more straight up wins, Coach Romar’s boys hold a feeble 17-35 SU and 18-32-1 ATS record including 7-29 SU and 12-24 ATS provided this is a conference game. Please note: That last tightener is on a woeful 2-15 SU and 3-14 ATS run. Don’t forget, West Coast Conference home dogs hold a poor 115-150-6 ATS mark too when running the floor against a conference foe that arrives off two or more straight up wins.

Off the buzzer-beating win over San Diego, Pepperdine will get a quick reality check when the No. 2 team in the nation visits. The Bulldogs are well rested and they’ll flex their muscles a bit in this matchup. Take Gonzaga. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
