The Pac-12 is quite the cluster this season.
Two of those teams right in the middle of that cluster meet on Thursday night as the California Golden Bears take on the Washington Huskies.
From the top spot all the way down to 10th, just 3.5 games separates the pack. Cal sits at 7-5, 1.5 games out while the Huskies are 7-6 2 full games out.
California is picking up some real steam at the right time. The Golden Bears have rattled off 3 straight wins to get back to within 1.5 games of the Pac-12 lead and have 3 conference wins over ranked opponents to really make themselves look good.
The problem for the Golden Bears has been the situation they’ll be in on Thursday, road games. Cal is perfect 16-0 at home this season, but has had no success on the road.
California has gone 0-5 in conference play on the road as they get outscored 71-67 in road contests.
This will mark the only meeting between these two teams, with Cal taking the last meeting between these two teams 90-88 back on 2/1/15.
The Huskies have gone in the complete opposite direction at the wrong time as they’ve dropped 3 straight games and have fallen to just 15-10 on the season.
They still have the chance to make one last push at impressing the committee with a late run at the Pac-12 title. While they have a lot of teams to jump, they are just 2 games back of first place.
Losses to Arizona, Colorado, and Utah highlight the current 3 game losing streak for the Huskies as they look to get back on track at home.
Like the Golden Bears, Washington has played much better at home this season. The Huskies have gone 10-4, but did drop their home decision to Arizona last time they took the floor inside Alaska Airlines Arena.
They’ve been a solid bet for backers this season going 14-9 ATS overall.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Golden Bears are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win.
- Golden Bears are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS win.
- Golden Bears are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games following three or more consecutive home games.
- Huskies are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 vs. Pacific-12.
- Huskies are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
- Huskies are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
Free CBB Prediction:
The Huskies really cannot afford to lose this one. They cannot fall any further down in the standings as their resume is already likely having them out of the tournament.
Making a push at the Pac-12 title would really open the eyes of the committee and it must start with a win over Cal here.
Look for Washington to get back on track, with the home crowd behind them, as this California team just isn’t good enough on the road.
