(647) California vs. Stanford (648)
PICK: bet365 @ Under 128.5 (-110)
DATE: March 11, 2020 - 9:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Will Rogers
EVALUATION: Win (1000) - Final Total 114
The set-up: The schools split a pair of games in the regular season, with each team winning on its home floor. Cal would need to win the Tournament to make the NCAA Tournament. Unfortunately for the Bears they come in with zero momentum after two straight losses to end the regular season. Stanford can't take any chances, although its still projected to be within the projected field for The Big Dance.
The pick: Note that Cal is ranked 318th in the country with an average of 68 possessions per game, while Standford enters ranked 198th in the nation with an average of 70.6 possessions per contest. Neither of these Pac 12 teams pushes the pace, each instead relying on a lot of half court sets while on offense. Expect this one to stay well below the posted number.
10* PAC 12 TOURNAMENT TOTAL BEST OF THE BEST on the UNDER Cal/Stanford.
