The Santa Clara Broncos will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Washington State Huskies on Tuesday night.

Cougars Going For Second Consecutive Win

The Cougars got their season off to a good start with a blowout win over Seattle in their season opener. They will try to keep the momentum going and pick up their second straight win when they face the Broncos on Tuesday.

Washington State played well offensively in their last game, scoring 85 points in the win. The team shot 41 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range.

Isaac Bonton finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, and four assists, while Jaylen Shead nine points, two rebounds, and two assists for the Cougars, who finished the game with two players scoring in double figures.

Washington State also played well defensively, holding the Redhawks to 54 points. They are facing a team that is averaging almost 80 points per game and will need to play well again on Tuesday to get the win.

Broncos Trying To Take Advantage Of Home Stand

The Broncos have a favorable early schedule with 13 of their first 16 games at home. They have taken care of business in their first two home games and will try to pick up their third consecutive home win when they play the Cougars.

Santa Clara has played well on offense so far, averaging 87 points per game. The team is shooting 52.1 percent from the field and 33 percent from three-point range. They will get to measure just how good their offense is against a good Cougars defense.

DJ Mitchell has been the top man for the Broncos this season, leading the team with 18 points per game. He is also averaging 4.5 rebounds and two assists per game. Guglielmo Caruso is averaging 13 points and seven rebounds per game, while Tahj Eaddy is averaging 11.2 points per game.

The Broncos have also done a good job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 57.5 points per game. With the team facing the best offense they have seen so far, they will need to play well on the defensive end if they want to cover the spread.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


Both teams are off to good starts, but the Broncos are the pick here because they have played well against the spread in their last nine games and have a defense that will frustrate the Cougars. Washington State scored 84 points in its season opener, but the numbers are a little inflated because they faced a Seattle team that is giving up 74.3 points per game through its first three games. The Broncos are holding opponents to 57.5 points through its first two games and will be a bigger challenge for Washington State’s offense. The Broncos won’t have as much trouble scoring against the Cougars, who were able to overpower Seattle defensively, with an offense that is averaging 87 points per game through their first two games.

Prediction: Santa Clara Broncos
