Free Picks and Predictions on this 2021 NCAA Tournament Championship Game between the Baylor Bears vs Gonzaga Bulldogs. This game set to tipoff Monday April 5, 2021 at 9:20pm et at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The current Draftkings College Basketball odds have Gonzaga as a -4.5 point favorite and the over/under at 160 total points.

Baylor comes into this game 27-2 overall after crushing the Houston Cougars 78-59 in the Saturday Final Four game. The Bears came out red hot and went up by 25 points at half time. Baylor went an impressive 52.7% from the field and hit 11 out of their 24 3-point attempts. Baylor is the top team in the nation when it comes to 3-point shooting at 41.2%, so unless they hit a cold streak, they’ll most likely be able to keep this game close and it will end up coming down to the last few minutes.

The Bears are 7th in the country when it comes to making their opponents turn the ball over at 17 per game.

On the road this season, Baylor have the tenth best offense in the nation that scores an average of 79.5 and on defense they give up an average of 66.2 points per game.

Baylor is 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games when playing as the underdog and the total has gone over in 14 of the Bears last 17 games.

Gonzaga comes into this game still undefeated at 31-0 overall. They picked up the Final Four overtime win 93-90 against UCLA in one of the most thrilling games to watch all season long. That amazing buzzer beating 3-point bank shot from Jalen Suggs put them now playing for the championship.

They’ll look to continue what they did offensively after going almost 59% from the field, but defensively they let UCLA go 57.6% from the field and 47% from 3-point land. If they let Baylor put up those kind of numbers, it will be a different ending to the Bulldogs historic season. Gonzaga knows Baylor will come into this game prepared to slow them down, but the Bulldogs are just too talented of a team to have anyone slow them down offensively.

On the road this season the Bulldogs have the top offense in the country that scores an average of 90.6 points per game, while on defense giving up an average of 71.4 points per game.

Gonzaga is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing as the favorite and the total has gone over in 6 of the Bulldogs last 6 games against an opponent in the Big 12 conference.

In this Baylor vs Gonzaga NCAA Tournament Championship game we’re rolling with Gonzaga First Half -2.5 at the -110 price.
