St. Mary’s vs. Gonzaga Free Pick: After a day off to rest, the West Coast Conference Tournament Final will be played on Monday night at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. At 9:00 p.m. ET, the Gonzaga Bulldogs will look to wrap up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament when they square off with the St. Mary’s Gaels. The Zags are favored by four points on the college basketball odds, though the stakes are clearly high with the WCC title and the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on the line.

The Gaels know that they should be good to get into the NCAA Tournament, but all doubt will be removed if they can win this game. That being said, we really don’t like the way that the team looked on Saturday night, getting forced to overtime by a suspect San Diego outfit that really doesn’t have all that much talent to choose from. Gonzaga meanwhile, turned on the jets when it had to against Loyola Marymount. The Bulldogs are clearly the class of this conference, and it would be a shame to see them not win the league. The Gaels were the better of these two teams by a country mile when they met twice this year, locking down the Gaels in Moraga and holding off a furious rally in the first meeting of the year between these two teams. If not for a huge run by St. Mary’s in that one, the Zags would be 2-0 SU and ATS in this series. Though the Gaels have a history of winning at least one of these games on the season against the Bulldogs, this is the year that Gonzaga is going to sweep this season series. The Zags remember last year’s overtime loss in the WCC Tournament, and they aren’t going to want to lose here in Las Vegas again. Free Monday College Basketball Pick: Take the Gonzaga Bulldogs -4
