Washington State vs. California,
03/02/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 69 - 76
Point Spread: 0/-110 California
The set-up: Cal had lost 16 in a row before upsetting Washington Thursday and now the Golden Bears look to make it tow in a row. A date vs. WSU, who was blowout out by Stanford is just what the doctor ordered for Cal. The Golden Bears looked great in the win over the Huskies, out-rebounding Washington 29-26 and committing only 11 turnovers vs. one of the conference’s top defensive units. Not surprisingly, Cal plays with revenge here as well after falling 82-59 in WSU last month. The undermanned Cougars’ 98-50 loss to the Cardinal is a sign of things to come for WSU down the stretch in my opinion.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well, but WSU is just 3-6 ATS on the road this year, while Cal is 8-4 ATS in its last 12 off a win vs. a conference rival. Look for the Bears to build momentum at the end of the season and to avenge the earlier loss.
