Best bets for Thursday
5. Arkansas Razorbacks. vs. 1. Gonzaga Bulldogs (-9, 155)
West Region: 7:09 p.m. ET, Chase Center, San Francisco
Marks’ pick: Gonzaga -9
The Bulldogs are coming off an impressive win against Memphis where they flipped a switch in the second half and Drew Timme lit it up, shooting 60% from the field and putting up 25 points. Arkansas is on borrowed time and doesn’t have the size or shooting to match up against Gonzaga.
