What to Know

The #1 Gonzaga Bulldogs have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. The Bulldogs and the Pepperdine Waves will face off in a West Coast battle at 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Firestone Fieldhouse. Gonzaga should still be riding high after a win, while Pepperdine will be looking to regain their footing.

Gonzaga strolled past the Saint Mary's Gaels with points to spare on Saturday, taking the contest 74-58. It was another big night for Gonzaga's forward Drew Timme, who had 25 points and five assists along with eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, Pepperdine was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Saturday as they fell 91-85 to the Brigham Young Cougars. Pepperdine's loss came about despite a quality game from guard Houston Mallette, who shot 5-for-6 from downtown and finished with 31 points.

The Bulldogs are the favorite in this one, with an expected 30.5-point (!) margin of victory. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it's been tough sledding overall. They are 3-0 ATS in away games but only 13-9-1 all in all.

Everything came up roses for Gonzaga at home against the Waves in the teams' previous meeting in January as the squad secured a 117-83 victory. The rematch might be a little tougher for Gonzaga since the team won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
