Against The Spread Pick
Washington State has lost three games in a row, bringing them down to only one game above .500. However, they are an impressive 12-4 at home this season, so there is some validity to choosing Washington State tonight. On the other side, Stanford is 17-9 overall, and are 1-4 over their last five games. Tonight’s game, despite the gap in record, is a pretty even match, and due to Stanford’s superior record overall, and better overall play as of lately, I would pick Stanford tonight.
Over Under Pick
Over the last five games Stanford and Washington State have been averaging 66 and 61 points per game respectively. Stanford is the seventh ranked defensive team in the nation, and since Washington State is not great offensively, I don’t think that they will be able to reach the quota for the over tonight. Expect Stanford to do it’s fair share of scoring tonight, but I would go with the under on this one.
