For the first time in school history, the Gonzaga Bulldogs are the No. 1-ranked team in the country. This week they’ll look to live up to the college basketball odds with a strong showing in their West Coast Conference tournament.
Not only do the Zags sit in a comfortable position to challenge for the WCC’s top honor – perhaps facing a legitimate challenge from regular season runner-up Saint Mary’s – they also have 17/2 odds of winning the March Madness tournament.
Is the college basketball betting world ready for a Gonzaga team that isn’t an underdog?
