College Basketball Best Bets | Expert Picks for Thursday, Feb. 15

Stanford vs Washington

by Kevin Rogers

The last time Stanford and Washington hooked up in Palo Alto, the Cardinal outlasted the Huskies, 90-80. The game easily finished Over the total of 158, as the teams combined for 100 points in the second half.

Stanford has topped the 88-point mark four times in conference play, most recently beating USC, 99-68. However, in the last three instances after a high-scoring output, the Cardinal has finished Under the total each time.

Washington hit five straight Overs before cashing the Under in a blowout win over Oregon State on Saturday.

Let's take the Under in this rematch in Seattle tonight.

Pick: Under 159 (-110)

Portland vs San Diego

Portland Pilots +7 (-110)

Here's a great situational play, and while we'll stop short in calling for the outright upset, everything points to the visitors taking this one "right down to the wire."

Portland is 9-17, including 2-9 on the road, while San Diego is 15-11, including 10-5 at home.

The Torreros have won three straight games. They've covered in six straight. The general betting public is clearly very quick to back the home side here, but we'll go full on contrarian and go the other way.

And with Santa Clara coming to town next, not only is this a potential letdown spot, but perhaps also a "look ahead" position as well.

And when you add those two factors together you get "trap game!" Portland plays with revenge as well after an 85-81 home loss to San Diego on January 23rd.

In what we anticipate will be a similar competitive battle, we're grabbing the points; the play is Portland!
