Money Line Pick
The Oregon Ducks suffered their second conference loss in the early portion of conference play on Thursday against the Washington State Cougars by a score of 61-72. The loss puts the Ducks in 4th place in the conference with a conference record of 3-2. However, Oregon is still one of the better teams in the nation as they enter this game ranked 8th in the latest AP poll with a record of 14-4. Oregon will look to bounce back following the loss to the Cougars when they travel to take on the Washington Huskies. Meanwhile, Washington is in 7th place in the PAC-12 with a conference record of 2-3 and an overall record of 12-6. They are coming off a 64-56 win at home against Oregon State. However, they aren’t as talented as the Ducks this season, and I love the money line with Oregon in this spot.
Over Under Pick
The Ducks are one of the most efficient teams in college basketball this season. They enter this game averaging 77.28 points per game, which ranks 48th in the nation. Defensively, they are limiting opponents to 67.22 points per game. Meanwhile, the Huskies are one of the better defensive teams in the conference as they are limiting opponents to the 47th fewest points per game with 62.44. However, they are only an average team offensively as they enter this game averaging 71.17 points per game. I look for the over 132 points to be the profitable side.
