March Madness odds on the Zags should be popular since this is the 10th straight season Gonzaga has made the NCAA Tournament. The key for the Zags in March Madness odds will be the play of guard Jeremy Pargo who finally started to play well to end the season. The Zags will cover March Madness odds because of their defense. They were second in the nation in field goal percentage defense. Gonzaga is deep and talented as Matt Bouldin and Josh Heytvelt can easily take over games. Gonzaga is not big or strong so they can be muscled around sometimes but it is unlikely that happens in this March Madness betting matchup against Akron.
