16 points? Wow, that seems very high. I'll be interested to see where it is at game time.

I'd take the Cougs and the 16... that is a big spread against and undefeated team.

Interesting. I picked the Zags by 16 in the prediction thread. Coincidence? Probably. :D

Looks like Vegas is on to the fact that we've beat the spread every game this year. Minus Colorado. Any others?

Spread down to 13.5 as of 15 minutes ago. A very odd opening spread, as if the Vegas boys were asleep at the wheel.

Those of you that made the early move and took the Cougs+16 might make some money tomorrow. I was cooking dinner for the lovely Mrs. '75 and missed the early betting window. Lesson learned!

Go Bulldogs! Get Bigger!

Tale of the Tape: Washington State (6-0) @ Gonzaga (5-1) (-13)

Against the Spread (ATS)
Washington State: 2-2
Gonzaga: 3-1

Notes:
Washington State is 2-7-1 ATS in last 10 road games
Washington State is 4-1 ATS in last 5 Wednesday games
In the Head-to-Head, the home team is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

Breakdown:
I think Ken Bone's Vikings last year took the Zags by surprise and the Zags couldn't turn on their 'A, B, or C' game soon enough before P-State squeaked out with a win. The Xmas break didn't help the atmosphere either.

Here is where I am conflicted: Who have the Cougs played?! Few had a quote today that rings true:




"If you want to be looked upon favorably at the end of the year, you have to play a tough schedule," Few said. "If all you do is play home games or patsies, you can't be asking for favors at the end of the year."


Not their fault that Oklahoma didn't show up but I am not completely impressed by their record so far. Outside of USD, these are all bottom dwellers and USD is nothing to write home about. Where I am conflicted is Klay Thompson...Who guards him? Last year, I put Downs on him and feel confident. This year? Not sure. Now with the spread at -13, which appears that Vegas will blow them out (WSU's worst loss last year was dealt by GU). 13 is a ton but does Thompson show up? I say late backdoor cover and take WSU +13.

Final Score Gonzaga 81 Washington State 75

Errr..I guarantee you that nobody got that action. Vegas Insider lines for tomorrow's games are seldom accurate. It's at -13.

Date Home/Away Line
12/08/05 GONZ 67 - WAST 53 GONZ -12
12/28/03 GONZ 96 - WAST 58 GONZ -18
12/15/01 GONZ 67 - WAST 44 GONZ -17
11/29/99 WAST 63 - GONZ 73 WAST 13
11/28/98 GONZ 70 - WAST 61 WAST 11.5


Interesting to see the Cougs haven't been favored by double digits in recent years and Zags have covered last 3 double digit spreads.

They probably expected a lot of action on Gonzaga the way they've been playing for this game. Starting off early with a large spread gives them enough action on Wazzu to even it out. Gonzaga is now at -10 at some places, so looks like they were wise to start off at such high bidding.

I think the Zags are going to win by upwards of 20, although I could be wrong. I feel like we're in for a magical performance tonight, in front of a welcoming home crowd. I'm hoping the fans send a whole lot of love for what this team has done the past couple weeks. They've earned a raucous environment.

I think so too.....-10 vegas line...means that the game is still in doubt within 5 minutes left in the game. I really think the game will be over by then...Zags will win comfortably 15 or more.

Go Zags!

GOODBYE Al Gore and Global Warming devotees....hell has officially frozen over!

I'M IN COMPLETE AGREEMENT WITH LIZF!!!!
:allhail:

Of course, this really means "take the Zags and give the points." :lmao:

Oops, sorry, I forgot...it's now called "climate change". Thanks to "climate change", El Paso, Houston, & Dallas have received a white "wintry mix" over the past two days.

I think the refs will hose us, Few will get ejected, Cougs will rain threes from another zip code. . .

We're doomed.
