This Tuesday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the UT Arlington Mavericks and the Gonzaga Bulldogs. This will be the first meeting between these teams this season and it will take place at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Gonzaga Looks To Remain Undefeated

The Gonzaga Bulldogs have looked great so far this season to the surprise of no one. The Bulldogs have won each of their first four games of the season by 3o points including a blowout road victory against Texas A&M in their last game. In that game, Gonzaga's defense was great as it only allowed 49 points while forcing the opposition to shoot just 30.4% from the floor. Gonzaga has always been known for coasting through their regular season schedule and nothing has been done to change that narrative. Gonzaga will look to continue coasting against another below-average team at home on Tuesday.

Leading the Bulldogs offensively is sophomore forward Filip Petrusevwho has been great so far this season. He is averaging a team-high 18.3 points per game along with 9.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists. In addition, he has also been great defensively as he is averaging 2.0 blocks per game. After being a bench player last season, Petrusev has blossomed into an elite talent as he will look to lead his team to another home victory.

Gonzaga's most underrated player is senior guard Ryan Woolridge who has been extremely solid this season. He is averaging 11.0 points per game along with 5.5 rebounds and 5.3 assists. In addition, he has also been extremely efficient from the floor as he is shooting 64.0% from the floor and an insane 100.0% from the three-point line. Woolridge was a fantastic player at North Texas before he decided to transfer to Gonzaga during the offseason and it appears that the move has paid off.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


Gonzaga is the significantly better team in this game and I expect the Bulldogs to continue rolling on Tuesday against another inferior team. Gonzaga has won every game this season by at least 30 points and I do not think that UT Arlington has enough offensive firepower to keep this game close. Gonzaga will use its superior size to dominate the boards as it will use its length to disrupt UT Arlington's offensive gameplan. Give me the Bulldogs at home.

Prediction: Gonzaga -22.5

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


Gonzaga's offense has been elite all season long as it has scored at least 95 points in three of its first four games of the regular season so I think that it will continue to score at will on Tuesday. UT Arlington has also scored at least 73 points in three of its first four games this season so its offense is respectable enough to do its part in order to get this game over the total. This game should end somewhere in the realm of 97-65 so I think that this game will be pretty high scoring. Give me the over as a result.

Prediction: Over

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:


Gonzaga has the talent to blow this game open in the first 20 minutes and I expect that to occur at home on Tuesday. Gonzaga is one of the best teams in the country and I think that UT Arlington will be overwhelmed by from the opening tip as Gonzaga cruises to a 20 point lead at the break. UT Arlington just got blown out by Oregon on the road in its last game and Gonzaga is a lot better than Oregon so the opening half should be a long and ugly one for the Mavericks. Give me the home team as a result.

Prediction: Gonzaga 1H
