Against the Spread Pick
The Cardinals lost their last game but have not played in a week. The loss was to a good USC team and they were dealt an overwhelming defeat at home by Kansas so this team is not elite, just a lot better than what we have been seeing lately in Palo Alto. This is their regional rival but I am not sure how that translates to the hardwood. Freshman Tyrell Terry is as slight as they come but getting some serious next level consideration with his play, especially his shooting. Cal already got beat easily by Stanford a few weeks back, losing by 16 points on the road. Shooting guard Matt Bradley is having a really nice season averaging 17ppg but on a lot of nights he is the only real threat. No other player averages even 10ppg. If they are going to break their two-game losing streak he is going to need some help. Take the Cardinal.
