In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Oregon at Washington State.
The Oregon Ducks once again have one of the best teams in the country. They are currently ranked 8th in the country and that is mostly because of their offense which is averaging 78.2 points per game. The defense can improve as it is now allowing 67 points per game but it is not needed yet. Payton Pritchard is having a great campaign, averaging 19.2 points per game with 6 assists while his combo guard Chris Duarte is adding 13 points and 5.4 rebounds. The team has stayed relatively healthy throughout this season and they would love to continue this trend.
The Washington State Cougars are 10-7 and 10th in the Pac-12. They have not faced any ranked opposition so far this season and they have lost 3 out of their last 4 games. They are playing iso basketball and the team is 356th in assists per game. They are not distributing the ball well and the whole team is struggling because of that. The offense, as a whole, is playing okay but more can be expected from them.
I think the line is just about right. 10 points on the road for Oregon can be tough because of their lack of defensive discipline. However, the team is so much better than Washington State. The Ducks are also playing with a ton of confidence at the moment. Anything but a win for them will surprise me. I also believe they have what it takes to cover the spread as well.
