Against The Spread Pick
Despite the fact that Stanford has a superior record, this game is very evenly matched. Both teams haven’t been great in their last five. Stanford going 1-4 and Washington losing all five, along with identical scoring numbers over the season makes tonight’s game a tougher pick. Both teams have had a tough last *10* games, with Stanford going 3-7 and Washington going 1-9. Both teams have poor ATS records this season and both teams have been in terrible slumps over the last month or so. I would take Washington tonight, solely based on the fact that they are the home team and their home crowd could give them a boost vs a conference rival. It’s a tough pick, but I’ll take Washington.
Over Under Pick
Both teams are good defensively. Stanford is eighth in the nation in defensive efficiency, and Washington is top-40. Combined, these teams are averaging 132 points per game over their last five, so they are barely making the mark tonight. Since Stanford is so elite defensively and Washington is not too bad themselves, I would pick the under tonight.
