Over is 4-0 in the Huskies last 4 games following a ATS win & 5-0 in the Huskies last 5 neutral site games. Over is 5-0 in the Wolf Pack last 5 games following a ATS win & 7-1 in the Wolf Pack last 8 neutral site games as an underdog.
Both teams have really struggled on the defensive end of the court this season as the Huskies come into this game ranked t-221st in scoring defense while the Wolf Pack rank just t-330th and as I’m expecting a fast-paced, high-scoring game, I think the play here is to take the Over. Good Luck!
