The Stanford Cardinal (17-9, 6-7 CONF) and the Washington State Cougars (14-13, 5-9 CONF) will meet on Sunday, February 23rd for a Pac-12 matchup at Friel Court in Pullman, WA. The game will be played at 8:00 PM eastern time. 

Stanford is coming off a 72-64 road win over Washington in their last game. That win snaps a four-game losing streak for Stanford, who has struggled as of late in conference play. Washington State lost to California in their last game, 66-57 at home. Washington State has now lost three straight games, and four of their last five overall. Stanford won the first meeting between these two teams, 88-62. 

Stanford scores 70.1 points per game on 47.1 percent field goal shooting this season. Stanford’s leading scorer and rebounder is F Oscar da Silva, who scores 15.9 points per game and earns 6.4 rebounds per game. Stanford allows 61.8 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a +8.3 scoring differential so far this season. Stanford also earns 33.7 rebounds, 13.0 assists, 4.1 blocks, and 7.0 steals per game as a team.

Washington State scores 69.7 points per game on 39.8 percent field goal shooting this season. Washington State’s leading scorer and rebounder is F CJ Elleby, who scores 18.5 points per game and earns 7.6 rebounds per game. Washington State allows 68.4 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a +1.3 point differential so far this season. Washington State also earns 36.1 rebounds, 11.7 assists, 2.5 blocks, and 6.7 steals per game as a team. 

Stanford is 16-10 against the spread this season and 4-6 against the spread in their last ten games. Stanford is also 4-3 against the spread on the road so far this season. Washington State is 11-16 against the spread this season and 5-5 against the spread in their last ten games. Washington State is also 8-7 against the spread at home so far this season.

I like Stanford in this spot, especially after they were able to break their losing spell with a road win over Washington. Stanford's defense is tough to crack, and I see Washington State struggling just as much as they did in the first meeting this season. I will lay the three points with Stanford.
