The California Golden Bears and Washington Huskies meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Alaska Airlines Arena.

The California Golden Bears could use a win here that would snap a six-game losing streak. The California Golden Bears are averaging 71.9 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 80.2 points on 50.1 percent shooting. Justice Sueing is averaging 14.4 points and 6.4 rebounds while Paris Austin is averaging 13.6 points and 4.9 assists. Darius McNeill is the third double-digit scorer and Matt Bradley is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The California Golden Bears are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The California Golden Bears are allowing 38.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.9 rebounds per game. The California Golden Bears have lost all five road games this season.

The Washington Huskies look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Washington Huskies are averaging 72.7 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 65.8 points on 40 percent shooting. Jaylen Nowell is averaging 16.7 points and 3.5 assists while Noah Dickerson is averaging 13.9 points and 6.7 rebounds. David Crisp is the third double-digit scorer and Matisse Thybulle is dishing 1.8 assists. The Washington Huskies are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Huskies are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.1 rebounds per game. The Washington Huskies have won all nine home games this season.

The Golden Bears are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Huskies are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Pacific-12 and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Golden Bears are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Washington and the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Huskies last 5 overall. The over is 6-2 in Golden Bears last 8 overall.

The California Golden Bears are a team you should be fading whenever you get the chance, as they're one of the worst defensive clubs in the country, they're 5-12 ATS on the season and 3-9 ATS as an underdog. On the road this season, Cal is allowing 54 percent shooting and losing by an average of 16.4 points. No, thank you. The Washington Huskies are finally putting things together and are shooting 49.8 percent from the field while winning by an average of 13 points during their winning streak. I'll lay the buckets.

Pick:
Washington -18
