WSU vs. UW College Basketball Preview
College Basketball Betting – Huskies, Cougars Clash For Bragging Rights
Matchups between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators in the NHL take on extra meaning because the two are provincial rivals, and in college hoops, a pair of state rivals will do battle at Washington, where the Huskies will host Washington State, who have struggled to start the Pac-12 portion of their schedule.
Washington State Washington Odds – Sunday, 7:00 PM ET
The Cougars (9-7, 1-3 Pac-12) have now dropped two in a row on the road after a 71-60 loss at Colorado, and a BetOnline.com review of the game would point to their terrible shooting percentage as the Cougars shot 36.5% from the field, which is well under their average of 47.5% (44th in the country). Reggie Moore came off the bench to score 14 points while another sub, Faisal Aden, had 12 points for the Cougars, who aren’t high in the Pac-12 pecking order according to those that work with price per head services. They’ll need a big game from leading scorer Brock Matum, who tied his career high with 27 points against Utah and then came out flat against Colorado, going 2-of-10 from the field before he fouled out with nine points in 35 minutes.
The Huskies (10-6, 3-1 Pac-12) have won five of their last six after a 91-83 victory over Seattle, and they got another massive performance from C.J. Wilcox off the bench; this time, to the tune of 25 points, hitting nine of his 11 free-throw attempts and players that use bookie software know that you have to get production off the bench. Tony Wroten was next with 24 points for the Huskies, who went to the foul line 59 times and hit 37 of those shots, so that is something that they have to work on because this game shouldn’t have been close.
College basketball betting odds should favor Washington in your wagering book, and even though they’re only 5-5 SU and ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Cougars, they have swept four of the last six regular-season series. Washington State has to slow the game down because there is no way they’ll be able to keep up with Washington in a track meet. Washington will look to push the ball as much as possible and force the Cougars to play above their speed, which will force them into making mistakes and fuel the Washington fast break. They also have an ace in the hole in Wilcox, who is a glorified sixth man who plays starter minutes and he may be the most talented player on either team. The Huskies will wear their state rivals down and cruise to victory, so take Washington to cover the college basketball betting spread.
