The Washington State Cougars have lost five games in a row and nine of their last 10. Wazzu is 2-12 in the Pac-12 and 3-10 away from home this season. Que Johnson leads the Cougars averaging 10.1 points per game. D.J. Shelton is averaging 9.8 points and 9.1 rebounds, Royce Woolridge is averaging 7.3 points, and Dexter Kernich-Drew is averaging 6.2 points. Washington State is averaging 62.6 points and they are shooting 40.9 percent while defensively they are allowing 66.7 points and their opponents are shooting 44.7 percent.

Oregon is 4-10-1 against the spread in their last 15 games, 1-7 against the spread in their last eight home games, and 8-19-2 against the spread in their last 29 games against the Pac-12. Washington State is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games, 1-7-1 against the spread in their last nine road games, and 3-7 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Washington State has covered the point spread in just one of their last five games at Oregon.
This should be a high scoring affair and my free pick is going to be on the total and even at 140.5 I like the over. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
