Tonight's Picks

Sports-betting1_medium



Washington State (+4) over California - This matchup features two of the top five scorers in the Pac-10. Cal is led by Jerome Randle (19 PPG) and the Cougars counter with sophomore Klay Thompson (23 PPG). These two squads are quite representative of the inconsistency from their fellow conference members. Washington State has an 8-1 home record, but that will be challenged tonight by a Cal team that features multiple scoring threats to complement Randle. Problem is, they haven't played a road game yet in 2010, so Wazzu should at least be able to cover if Thompson is getting his.

Georgetown (-7) over Seton Hall - It's the top scoring offense in the league against the top defense in the league. Seton Hall features one of the premier scorers in college basketball in Jeremy Hazell (24 PPG), who has effortless range and can really stretch a defense out, and he's complemented by one of the best rebounders in journeyman Herb Pope (11.5 RPG). The 2010 Hoyas are a typical John Thompson III team, full of hardnosed defenders, and a deliberate offensive style designed to control the pace of the game. Look for Greg Monroe to take Pope outside the paint and outside his comfort zone.  Verizon Center and lockdown D should spell a comfortable win for the Hoyas.

Butler (-15.5) over Cleveland State -The hometown Bulldogs are the class of the Horizon League once again. The difference this year is that is that there is not a close second, after CSU recently battled for Horizon supremacy. This season is a different story for the Vikings, 7-10 overall and losers of seven of their last eight road games.  Butler boasts non-conference victories over Northwestern, UCLA, Ohio State, and Xavier and a spotless conference record to boot. The Bulldogs should notch a big win in Hinkle tonight.
