College Basketball: Saturday, March 7, 2020 at 11:00 pm (Matthew Knight Arena)
The Line: Oregon -7.5 -- Over/Under: 131.5
The Stanford Cardinal (20-10, CONF 9-8) and Oregon Ducks (23-7, CONF 12-5) face off in a Pac 12 showdown at the Matthew Knight Arena. Stanford beat Oregon 70-60 earlier this season.
This is a key game for Stanford, if they want to make the NCAA tournament, especially after the loss in their last game. Stanford had won four games in a row but in their last game on Thursday were beat by Oregon State 68-65. Stanford was the underdog against Oregon State, but it was a game they needed.
Away from home this season Stanford has a 4-5 record and the defense has been fine, but the offense has been a little worse averaging 69.1 points per game.
Oscar da Silva is the best player for the Cardinal and against Oregon State he put up 14 points in 27 minutes of play.
Oregon is coming into this game hot having won five of the last six games with the only loss coming against Arizona State on the road.
In Oregon’s last game they had one of their most impressive offensive games of the season putting up 90 points against Cal.
Payton Pritchard paced the Ducks putting up 20 points, but the team also used a balanced attack with five players scoring in double figures.
Overall this season, the Ducks are led by Pritchard who is averaging 20.2 points while shooting 46.6 percent from the field.
Stanford is 18-7-1 against the spread in their last 26 games played on Saturday. The under is 11-4-2 in Stanford’s last 17 games played on the road. The over is 8-2 in Oregon’s last 10 home games. Oregon is 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 home games. Oregon is 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games played on Saturday. The under is 9-4 in last 13 meetings in Oregon between the Cardinal and Ducks.
Stanford didn’t look good against Oregon State, and it’s not going to get any better in this game. Look for the Oregon offense to find a lot of success, and that will be enough for them to win this game and cover the spread.
