Gonzaga is the No. 1 team in our Power Rankings and is the last unbeaten team in DI basketball. In addition to hunting a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, the Bulldogs are also chasing against-the-spread history. The Zags are 18-4 ATS, +$1,273 this season, can they finish the year as the most profitable regular-season team in our database?

The current record holder is the 2014 Davidson squad that went 22-4 ATS, +$1,674. The Wildcats finished with nine straight ATS covers including winning for bettors in 11 of their last 13 games.

Gonzaga can match the Wildcats for best ATS winning percentage. Mark Few’s team has four regular season games left and will need to win and cover in order to go 22-4 ATS like Davidson.

However, becoming the most profitable regular-season ATS team in our database will be more difficult. The Zags are going to be sizeable favorites in their remaining games.

On average Gonzaga was favored by 16.9 points when they played San Francisco, Pacific, San Diego and BYU (3 of those games were as road teams) earlier in the season. The Bulldogs went 4-0 in those contests but on average a $100 spread bettor only won $88.70 each game. If the Zags win out and earn the same payout on average as they did before the team would add $354.80 to their total. This would put their grand total for the regular season at $1,627.80, short of Davidson’s record.

The Zags are unlikely to become the most profitable regular-season ATS team in our database. They’ll just have to settle for a likely unbeaten season, a No. 1 seed in the tournament and a chance to cut down the nets in Phoenix.
