Washington Huskies vs. Oregon State Beavers Preview
Tonight in a Pac 10 match up the struggling Oregon State Beavers (8-12) host the 19th ranked Washington Huskies (15-5). NCAAB lines have Washington as big 13.5-point favorites in this game with a total of 144.
In their last games the Beavers lost to the Stanford Cardinal 70-56 on Saturday and the Huskies lost to in-state rival Washington State 87-80 on Sunday.
After starting out Pac 10 play winning their first 2 games the Beavers have lost 5 of their last 6 conference games including their last 3. The Huskies had their 3-game winning streak stopped with their last loss, but they are still tied with Arizona for first place in the Pac 10.
In the first meeting between these 2 teams on January 8th the Huskies laid a serious beat-down on the Beavers beating them 103-72. The Huskies have beaten the Beavers in 8 straight games.
To get back in the W column the Huskies have to play better than they did in their last game. Leading scorer Isaiah Thomas (17.1 ppg) scored 19 points against WSU, but he was only 3/13 from the floor and he committed 7 turnovers. It may be more important that Matthew Bryan-Amaning (15.7 ppg) scores, as he only had 6 points against WSU and the Huskies are only 1-4 when he scores fewer than 10 points.
Oregon State and their 270th ranked scoring defense may be just what the Huskies need to get back on track. In their 8-game winning streak over the Beavers the Huskies have averaged shooting over 51% and in their last 3 games at Oregon State they have won by an average of 25.3 ppg.
Oregon State will have to play solid D tonight to pull off the upset and they have to get good scoring games from guards Jared Cunningham (13.7 ppg) and Calvin Haynes (10.1 ppg), who are the only Beavers averaging in double figures.
Oregon State has lost 28 straight games against ranked teams.
Oregon State has a weak defense and not much offense, which spells doom against a Washington team that ranks 2nd in the nation in scoring. The Huskies will continue their dominance over the Beavers, as they will easily win this game and cover the 13.5-point spread. Take the Over in this game as well, as the Huskies will light up the scoreboard tonight.
OSU is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games and Washington is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games. In the last 8 games between these 2 teams the total has gone Over.
Pick: Washington -13.5
