The3 Bulldogs were only 1-1 facing ranked teams this season and can they beat a Duke team from the loaded ACC. I would say no. In an interesting betting trend the Bulldogs are only 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games facing teams from the ACC.
Yeah Gonzaga won their conference tournament, but it was the WCC, which is far from a major win..
Duke is loaded this season led by the possible #1 pick in the next NB d Jahlil Okafor, who only went for 6 points in the win over Utah in the last game, but has been en furgo as of late. The Dukies are deep and balanced and of Gonzaga does not play great D they will be toast.
This is a match up of 2 great offensive teams, as Duke ranks 4th in the nation in scoring and 3rd in team FG% and Gonzaga ranks 10th in the nation in scoring and 1st in team FG%.

Playing in the ACC Duke played a much tougher schedule on the season and they have been 8-1 facing ranked teams this season.
Yeah, the Zags are for real with the likes of Kyle Wiltjer (16.8 ppg) and Kevin Pangos (11.8 ppg),, but there is no way the less than athletic Bulldogs can kep up with Duke.
