Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Toreros have struggled offensively, averaging 66.8 points per game. They have played worse in their last five games, averaging 63.8 points per game and will struggle to score against the Pilots, who are holding opponents to 68.1 points per game. Portland has also struggled offensively, averaging 68.3 points per game. However, they will have an easier time scoring against the Toreros, who are giving up 71.5 points per game because the Toreros have struggled defensively in recent games and are giving up 83.2 points per game in their last five games. Even though the Toreros have dominated the series in recent years, their lack of offense and poor defense makes the Pilots the best bet.

Prediction: Portland Pilots

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Pilots and Toreros have struggled on the offensive end with San Diego averaging 66.8 points per game and Portland averaging 98.3 points per game. The Toreros will have a hard time hitting their season average against a defense that has given up more than 70 points only once in their last four games, which was to top-seeded Gonzaga and has held their other three opponents to 63.6 points per game. The Pilots should be able to hit their season average against the Toreros, who haven’t played well defensively in recent games, giving up 83.2 points per game, but they won’t score enough to go over the total. The Toreros and Pilots have played under the total in their last four meetings.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:

The Pilots will cover the first-half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Toreros in the first half of their last three games, averaging 34.7 points per game while the Toreros average 22.3 points per game.

Prediction: Portland Pilots

Half-Time Total Bet

Rating:

The Pilots and Toreros are averaging 57 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games and will stay under the first-half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.
