BY Barry Werner • March 26, 2017

The early line is out on the Final Four matchup on Saturday in Phoenix between Gonzaga and South Carolina. The top-seeded 'Zags are a strong choice in their matchup with the seventh-seeded Gamecocks.

Gonzaga enters the game with a 36-1 mark; while South Carolina has a school record 26 wins, it also has lost 10 games.

Hence, the 'Zags have opened as 6.5-point favorite, per Dave Mason, astute Las Vegas oddsmaker.


Mason mentioned that some backers of the Gamecocks already are cashing tickets. They were considered 40-1 long shots to make the Final Four when the tournament started.
