College Basketball Betting Trends

Washington

The Huskies are 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite. Washington is 2-6 ATS in its last eight road games.

Hawaii

The Rainbow Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. Hawaii is 4-1 ATS in its last five games as an underdog.

Prediction:

This spread might be a little wider than it would have been before Washington's decisive victory last night. But the Rainbow Warriors have been tough at home and the Huskies certainly won't benefit from a neutral setting tonight. This is the first true road game of the season for Washington and I'm going to bet on Hawaii with the backing of its home crowd in a tournament that is important to the program.
