Saint Mary's just beat mighty Gonzaga the other night and we suspect the Zags will be seeking revenge, but can the Bulldogs cover a -12.5 spread?

Tommy Kuhse had 14 points and six rebounds for No. 23 Saint Mary’s, which beat No. 1 Gonzaga 67-57 on Saturday night to prevent the Bulldogs from completing another undefeated run in the West Coast Conference.

“That's really special," Gaels coach Randy Bennett said after his squad completed a 16-0 run at McKeon Pavilion. “It’s been hard to get. We lost it one year to Loyola Marymount in our last home game. It’s been something hard to get and we finally got it. Especially when it’s against the No. 1 team in the country, it just makes it … a night you’ll never forget.”

Against Gonzaga we have the Gaels at +10, suggesting a 2.5 overlay for the ZagsThe revenge factor can certainly push the limits here though.

The home team has won six of the last seven in this series while Gonzaga has won seven of the last eight.

All but one of the Zags wins were by more than the current 12.5 spread.

Bulldogs are 13-6 Against The Spread in their last 19 neutral site games as a favorite.

As an away favorite since 2017 Straight Up, Saint Mary's is 35-7-0 for an 83.3% win percentage.

As an away underdog, St. Mary's is 4-11-0 (46.7%).

Gonzaga is just 1-4 in their last five games overall Against The Spread.  This is the one where they wake up and cover the -12.5 spread.
