The Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions are one of the worst teams in college basketball as they went 13-19 last season, and they were blown out in the season opener by an average USF team by 29 points. The Gonzaga Bulldogs are once again a contender for the National Championship as they have a ton of depth, especially in the frontcourt. The Bulldogs proved in the season opener that they are trying to run their offense through Kispert and Petrusev, and I just don’t see Arkansas-Pine Bluff having enough big bodies to throw at the duo. Gonzaga will look to draw the Golden Lions into foul trouble, and the game will spiral fast if the Bulldogs are able to do that at home. Final Score Prediction, Gonzaga Bulldogs win and cover ATS 84-48
