Baylor and Gonzaga will put it all on the line Monday night at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis when they play the Men’s Basketball Championship at 9:20 p.m. ET. Are the unbeaten Bulldogs the ultimate play as a 4.5-point favorite or is there a better option on the board?

Baylor vs. Gonzaga NCAA Tournament Prediction
The Bears are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 4-0 against the number in their last four games coming off a win and are 4-0 against the number in their last four games when facing an opponent with a winning record. Baylor is also 34-16-2 at the betting window when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
On the other side, the Bulldogs are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game. They also struggled with UCLA, a team that plays excellent defense and that has been hot from 3-point range. Baylor is a better defending team and a significantly better 3-point squad, so I expect the Bears to hang around until the end.
ELITE EIGHT BETTING PREDICTION: BAYLOR BEARS +4.5
