The Washington Huskies will be on the road to take on the Utah Utes.
The tip-off is set for 9:30 ET from John M. Hunstman Center.
So far, every spot that I have checked is showing the Utes as a 10 point favorite. The total is staying right around 145, but I have seen some that are showing 144.5.
Washington has not played all that well this year. The main issue for them is playing consistently and if they do not get better in that area, then it will be more of the same for this team.
The Huskies dropped to the Arizona Wildcats on Monday by a score of 95-79. They competed in the game for a while, but the better team just proved to be too much for them to handle.
The resume for this team is really not all that impressive. They have not played all that many great teams and they have also lost to some bad teams.
Terrell Brown was the leading scorer for them on Monday with 28 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. Other guys had to step up on the offensive side of things besides him and that did not happen. I look for the offense to be more balanced when they square off with the Utes on Thursday.
Utah Runnin’ Utes
For me, it is hard to judge this Utah team so far. Sure, they have looked decent, but I have to see more from them.
The Utes come into this game with a record of 8-6. When they have gone against the better competition, the results have not been all that good for them, which is a bit concerning. For me to take them seriously, they are eventually going to have to beat some good teams.
They lost to the Oregon Ducks on Saturday by a score of 79-66. A strong second half by Oregon is what propelled Oregon in that game, as Utah actually had a lead at the end of the first half.
Their last loss was just an example of them not playing a full game. It is one thing to get off to a hot start, but you have got to be able to sustain that throughout the entire game or you are not going to win all that often.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Washington is 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
- Washington is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Utah.

- Utah is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games.
- Utah is 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.
- The total has gone over 4 of Utah’s last 5 games this season.
Free Washington Huskies vs. Utah Runnin’ Utes NCAAB Summary:
Utah should be able to win this basketball game, but I do not think it will be easy for them.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Washington ATS
Listen, I get that there are no moral victories in sports, but Washington competed with Arizona in their last game, which is not easy to do. I know the final score may seem like the Wildcats won handily, but that was not the case throughout and that should give the Huskies some confidence.
At this point, it is hard to have all that much confidence in the Utes, especially when they are going against the Huskies.
For me, the 10 points are too high to lay with Utah. They may win the game, but I expect Washington to give them everything they have and make this a competitive game.
Give me the Huskies getting points on the road.
