Thursday's Pac-12 Predictions
The Pac-12 some intriguing betting odds for their featured games tonight. Here’s three predictions we like in the conference.
Oregon at Washington State, 9PM ET (ESPN2)
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Oregon is the favorite on the road tonight, as the Ducks are getting odds of -8.5 points against the Cougars. Oregon has won four straight in this series, covering the spread in three of the four games. That includes an 84-57 win at home on Feb. 11. Washington State is tougher at home, but the Cougars just don’t have the consistency. Oregon is averaging 81 points over its last five games and I expect that offensive surge to continue tonight. PAC-12 PREDICTIONS: OREGON -8.5
Stanford at No. 19 Arizona, 10PM ET (FS1)
Oddsmakers have Arizona as the clear favorite at home, with the Wildcats getting odds of -9 points against Stanford. Covering hasn’t been Arizona’s thing this season, especially at home. The Wildcats are just 4-8 ATS at home. Stanford covered in the first meeting this season at home, a 73-71 loss. The Cardinal also covered in their last game at Arizona. The Wildcats have played down to their competition at home this season and I see a similar thing happening tonight. Stanford has won its last three and has some momentum going. PAC-12 PREDICTIONS: STANFORD +9
Oregon State at Washington, 11PM ET (ESPN2)
Oddsmakers are listing Washington as a slight favorite at home today, as the Huskies are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Beavers. It’s been a tough season for Oregon State. Aside from a 14-14 record, the Beavers are 0-8 straight up on the road and 2-6 against the spread. Washington suffered an OT loss at Oregon State on Feb. 10, but the Huskies covered and have covered in seven of their last eight against the Beavers. I like Washington at home. PAC-12 PREDICTIONS: WASHINGTON -3.5
