T.M. Selection: Portland (10* GAME OF THE WEEK).

San Francisco is 8-6 overall and 2-2 in WCC play. Portland is 6-5, but 0-2 in league action. The Dons enter off a 68-60 loss to Loyola Marymount. The Pilots play with revenge here against San Francisco after losing earlier in the year. They also enter focussed after a three-game losing streak, most recently falling 116-88 to Gonzaga. San Fran averages 74.4 PPG, while allowing 68.6, while Portland has allowed 80.5 PPG. That defensive number is skewed though because of the level of competition the last two games. Note that the Dons are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games as well. I like Portland to keep this one close at home and while I'll stop short in calling for the outright, everything points to this one big a classic nail-biter; grab the points!

T.M. Prediction: 78-74 SF


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
