The Gonzaga Bulldogs opened as 14-point favorites over the UCLA Bruins for Saturday's Final Four matchup, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

A spread this large is uncommon for a Final Four matchup, but it is not the biggest of all-time. In 1972, UCLA was a 17-point favorite against Louisville in the national semifinal, and ended up covering the spread. Gonzaga has not had much issues with big spreads this year, as their 27 consecutive wins by double-digits is an NCAA record. The Bulldogs have covered all four of their NCAA tournament games and are now 16-12-2 ATS for the season. UCLA also has covered the spread in all their tournament games (5-0) and are 6-3 ATS as an underdog this season. The over/under for this matchup is currently 145.5. Gonzaga has moneyline odds of -1250 while UCLA's moneyline odds are +700.
