There's already been some slight movement in Gonzaga-Baylor National Championship betting line
With Gonzaga and Baylor gearing up to play for the national title on Monday night, bettors are getting their picks in.
Gonzaga opened up as a five-point favorite, but that line has been bet down to 4.5, according to The Action Network. The total has also seen an adjustment, going from 160 at opening all the way down to 159 at some books.
The Bulldogs are in this game thanks to a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer from Jalen Suggs on Saturday night. If Gonzaga wins, it will complete college basketball’s first perfect season since Indiana in 1976.
Prior to their narrow escape vs. the Bruins, the Bulldogs had won 27 straight games by double digits.
Baylor has cruised to the National Championship game, with its closest victory coming against Arkansas in the Elite Eight. The Bears still won that game by nine points. Baylor defeated Houston 78-59 in the Final Four.
These two teams were scheduled to meet during the regular season, but the game was canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
This is the first time since 2005 that the two top overall seeds in the selection committee’s rankings will meet in the National Championship.
Tip off is at 9:20 p.m. ET on Monday night.
