In the second round of the Men's Basketball Championship - West Region, the TCU Horned Frogs take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs. The odds are stacked against TCU, who are currently facing a 5-point spread, according to the latest PickCenter analysis.

Gonzaga has been a top team all season, and their impressive stats and recent form reflect this. They won their last ten games, including an 82-70 win against Grand Canyon in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Gonzaga's offense is a force to be reckoned with, and they will undoubtedly be a tough opponent for TCU.
