Against The Spread Pick
This has not been a great year for basketball in Washington, as Washington State sits at .500 with a 14-14 record, and Washington is 13-15 and is last place in the PAC-12. Washington State is 11-17 ATS this season, and 6-9 ATS in conference play. Washington State is 1-4 in their last five games, the only win being against this same Washington team. Washington is also 1-4 in their last five games, their only win being a blowout vs Cal. For tonight’s game, I think the spread is a little tough to take, and while I think that Washington will win the game, I think Washington State will be able to keep a close margin. Go with Washington State tonight.
Over Under Pick
The two teams are averaging a combined 130 points over the last five games, and both teams are 6-9 on the over under pick in conference play. Both teams struggle offensively, but they are both decent defensive teams, both are top 100 in defensive efficiency. Despite this, based on their last meeting, I would expect another decent scoring night from the two teams. It’s a close one, but I would pick the OVER tonight
