March Madness gambling may have to make room for additional West Coast Conference March Madness betting commodities, however, such as St. Mary’s and Portland. As usual, the Gonzaga Bulldogs are the March Madness gambling class of the West Coast Conference.
Gonzaga was leading the West Coast Conference March Madness betting race with a record of 21-4 straight up and 12-8-2 with the betting lines gambling board. The Zags were one of the top offensive teams in all of March Madness gambling as they ranked 29th in the nation for scoring and a lethal 7th best in the country for field goal percentage.
The Zags have impressive straight up wins this year over Illinois, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. The St. Mary’s Gaels felt totally ripped off last year when they were not invited to the March Madness gambling “Big Dance” as they had to settle for the NIT.
St. Mary’s entered the 2009-10 season determined to get their March Madness gambling ticket punched and are in the thick of the West Coast Conference race as they had a mark of 21-5 straight up and 15-9 against the spread.
St. Mary’s would also be a top shelf offensive team to face with the March Madness gambling board as they ranked 14th in the nation for scoring and were 9th in the nation in field goal percentage. The Gaels lost both of their matchups this year to Gonzaga, however, which does not help their March Madness gambling resume.
The Portland Pirates made March Madness gambling noise in the early season with impressive straight up wins over Oregon, UCLA, and Minnesota. Like St. Mary’s, however, they failed to beat Gonzaga in both of their matchups this season.
If Portland can finish strong and have a great showing in the West Coast Conference tournament they would rate a solid shot at taking an at large bid for the “Big Dance.” Portland had an overall record of 16-8 straight up and 13-7-1 against the spread.
