Washington heads to Utah to take on the Utes on Thursday night in a Pac 12 battle.  The Huskies were expected to be rebuilding this year while a lot was expected of the Utes, but the roles seem to be reversed.  The Huskies are having a much better season than could have been expected since it’s the first in a long time without Lorenzo Romar, but the Huskies have played great and come into Thursday’s game at 13-5 overall and 3-2 in the tough Pac 12.

Meanwhile, the Utes are 10-7 overall, but only 2-4 in conference play.  They have lost four straight games and find themselves near the bottom of the Pac 12 standings.  They gave up 14 three-pointers in their latest, an 84-67 loss to USC that pushed them further down the standings.

Line: Utah -7

Total: 143.5

Washington starts 3-2 in Pac 12

The Huskies started 3-2 in Pac 12 play, a nice reversal from the struggle they had last year.  Mike Hopkins has the Huskies playing great basketball, and they don’t have the talent they have had in recent years, but they are playing more like a team without the talent of a player like Markelle Fultz.  They are coming off of a bad loss, however, losing 73-64 at home to Stanford.

It’s the first time they had looked sluggish in weeks, but just didn’t bring their A game versus the Cardinal.  Nor their B or C game even.  They trailed by only two at halftime, but the Cardinal extended the lead throughout the second half and Washington didn’t have much of a chance in the closing minutes.

Utah gets routed by SC

Utah got routed in their latest game, marking their fourth straight loss in conference play and they dropped to 2-4 in conference and 10-7 overall.  The USC Trojans hit 14 three-pointers and crushed the Utes by 17 points on Sunday night.  Jonah Matthews had 17 points and hit three three-pointers, all off the bench, to pace the Trojans.  All five starters hit one from deep for the Trojans.

On the bright side, if there was one, the Utes got a very nice game from Justin Bibbins.  He hit five three-pointers himself on his way to 19 points.  He also grabbed two boards, dished out four assists, and had a steal.  It wasn’t nearly enough though to prevent a fourth straight loss.

Trends:

The Washington Huskies are:

  • 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games.
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.

The Utah Utes are:

  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games.
  • 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.

It’s the right time to bet against Utah.  They are struggling and don’t look like the same team of previous years.  Let’s take UDub.
