Sunday is a day of rest for most people but in Oregon there will be a game of basketball being played. The game tips at 8pm EST and features the Oregon Ducks vs the Washington State Cougars. The point spread is Oregon -15 points and the total is 149.5 points. Here are our picks for the game – both side and total.

Oregon comes into the game with a solid record for a solid year of basketball. They are 16-8 SU but only 11-12 against the spread. They average 78 PPG on offense and allow 70 PPG. They have won 4 of their last 5 games.

Washington State has not had a great year on the hardwood. They are 9-14 SU and just 9-13 ATS. They score an average of 74 PPG and allow 78 PPG. They have lost their last 6 games, last beating Cal on January 13th.

Head to Head

We are using the last ten games these teams have played each other as the test sample. The Oregon Ducks absolutely own The Washington State Cougars in this period. Oregon is 9-1 SU and 6-4 ATS. They last played a year ago and Oregon won easily 85-66.

Washington State is just 1-8 ATS on the road. Oregon is just 7-9 ATS at home this season.

When playing a mutual opponent, the Washington Huskies in this case, Oregon beat Washington by 25 points (65-40) just two days ago. Washington State played at Washington and lost by 18 points (80-62).

All roads and signs are leading to an Oregon win and cover here. Washington State is really bad. This Washington State team is a far cry from the team that started 6-0 and was receiving national ranking votes. They are just 3-14 since winning The Wooden Legacy Tournament. Washington State has an inability to get to the free throw line. Wazzu shoots an absolutely abysmal .238 free throws per field goal attempt, the fifth-worst mark in college basketball. Their average margin of loss in their last 5 games is 20.2 points. I would bet against them being able to keep it closer than 15 points at Oregon. The smart money here is Oregon -15.

I can see Oregon scoring close to 90 points and Washington State scoring close to 70.
