California Bears vs Stanford Cardinal

Cal -3

The California Bears travel to Palo Alto to take on the Stanford Cardinal in a Friday night Pac 12 matchup. Cal is having a very good season, are currently 4th in the Pac 12 standings and will be in the NCAA tournament field. The Bears are 4-1 overall in their last 5 games and 4-1 ATS. On the other side Stanford is having an awful season and will most likely not even make the NIT. The Cardinal are 1-4 straight up in their 5 and 2-3 ATS.

For this RideTheHotHand.com free pick we are going after the spread. For this game it really comes down to one thing, firepower. Stanford comes into the game losers in 5 of their last 6 games where they scored under 70 points in 4 of them and under 60 twice. Stanford doesn’t have one player who can create their own shot. Their whole offensive strategy seems to be look down low to 6’9 forward Reid Travis and if that isn’t open burn the shot clock down and take a contested jump shot. It doesn’t help the Cardinal that no one outside of Dorian Pickens can hit a 3 to save their life and even Pickens averages under 2 made per game. Cal on the other hand have 3 playmakers led by Ivan Rabb, who all can create their own shot and hit from 3. When these 2 teams played January 29th Rabb went off for 25 points and because Stanford couldn’t find any scoring from the outside they slowed the game to a crawl and still lost 66-55. Look for Stanford to use the same approach and for it to fail again. THE PICK: CALIFORNIA -3
