NCAA Basketball Betting Odds:
Washington State Cougars
The Cougars crawled their way to an 11-20 record this season. Additionally, the team was very mediocre in conference play posting a 4-14 record in Pac-12 play. Unsurprisingly this led to a meek 11th place ranking in the conference. Since they’re facing a middle of the pack conference opponent this Wednesday evening, should bettors rule out Washington State tonight? Well tonight’s NCAA basketball betting odds certainly are. And seeing as how the Cougars are 2-8 in their last 10 versus Oregon, it’s clear you should too. After all, Washington State hasn’t won a game in their last 5 matchups. Included in those losses was a 72-61 defeat at the hands of Oregon. This should make tonight’s matchup fairly easy to predict.
Players to Watch: Robert Franks (22.1 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 2.5 apg), CJ Elleby (14.9 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 3.0 apg), and Marvin Cannon (7.9 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 0.6 apg).
The Ducks swim into tonight’s action sporting a 19-12 record. Additionally, the team is 10-8 in conference play this season, which ranks them 4th overall in the Pac-12. Entering tonight’s matchup riding a 4 game winning streak, Oregon should have no problems picking apart the weaker Washington State. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Oregon is headed for another win this evening. Although Washington State is averaging more points per game with their 75.5 average to the Ducks 70.0, it’s clear the Ducks’ defense will propel them to victory. After all, they’re giving up 63.7 per game while the Cougars allot a whopping 78.5.
Players to Watch: Bol Bol (21.0 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 1.0 apg), Payton Pritchard (12.2 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 4.3 apg), and Louis King (12.1 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.3 apg).
