Have you not enjoyed the madness?! We are finally at the championship, and we are hours away from the "One Shining Moment" montage and ultimate glory of cutting down the nets. Two No. 1 seeds face off in an absolute beauty of a matchup.
The Baylor Bears decimated Houston in the final four matchup, after a strong defensive performance combined with lethal outside shooting. Gonzaga is eying their first title as well, and also looking to cement themself in history as the first undefeated national champion in 45 years. UCLA kept it close, but Suggs and the Zags had other ideas.
Gonzaga is 4-1 against the spread in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, and they are the nation's top offensive team, averaging NCAA highs in scoring (92.1) and shooting percentage (55.1). Baylor is 19-10 against the spread overall this season and just crushed the nation's top-ranked shooting and No. 2 scoring defense by 19 points. We have said it all since the beginning, its Gonzaga's tournament to lose. Baylor is going to keep it close, but Roll Zags in my opinion.
