USC Trojans +9

The Gonzaga Bulldogs have looked unbeatable all season long especially in the NCAA Tournament, but the USC Trojans are arguably one of the hottest teams in the tournament with back-to-back blowout wins over Kansas, Oregon, and Drake. The Trojans have one of the best bigs in the country with Evan Mobley as he is averaging 16.3 PPG, 8.8 RPG, and 3 BPG, but what has made this team excellent has been the play of their backcourt with Peterson, White, and Eaddy have productive outings. The Trojans are great on the defensive side of the court as they are holding their opponents to an average of 64.5 PPG and they should keep the Gonzaga scoring attack in check. Final Score Prediction, Gonzaga Bulldogs win but fail to cover ATS 75-68.
