Texas Longhorns vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs Predictions

The Longhorns opened the season with a convincing 92-48 victory over Houston Baptist on Tuesday night in Austin, covering a 37.5-point number as the UNDER (153) comfortably cashed. F Dylan Disu (knee) didn't play in the opener against HBU, but the transfer from Vanderbilt is nearing a return. He has been practicing in full, and head coach Chris Beard told CBSSports.com reporter Jon Rothstein that Disu will play "sooner rather than later." Disu posted 15.0 PPG and 9.2 RPG for the Commodores in 2020-21, so he'll be a welcome addition to the Longhorns frontcourt.

The Zags put it on Dixie State in the home opener, winning 97-63, although Gonzaga failed to cover the 40-point number. Like Texas, Gonzaga hit the UNDER (167.5) in its opener, too. Four players went for double digits in points, with C Chet Holmgren posted 14 points, 13 rebounds and six assists while swatting a ridiculous seven shots. G Julian Strawther joined the big man in the double-double club with 17 points and 10 boards. G Rasir Bolton ended up converting three of his four attempts from behind the arc, finishing with 15 points, three rebounds and three assists in his 28 minutes while shooting an efficient 5-for-7 overall.

This is the first meeting between these institutions since Nov. 26, 2017, a 76-71 win by Gonzaga in overtime. The Bulldogs also won the only other meeting Dec. 2, 2006, an 87-77 count. The OVER has hit in each previous meeting.
