Pac 12 Tournament 3/8 Oregon St VS California Free Betting Pick

Pac 12 Tournament 3/8 Oregon St VS California Free Betting Pick

California -12

Like the opening round of most major conference tournaments, the first round of the Pac 12 tournament in Las Vegas there is a bubble team that can’t afford to lose it’s first game. The California Golden Bears were thought to be a lock for the tournament one month ago but losing 5 out of their last 6 games put them squarely on the bubble. Oregon St has had a dismal season even for them, only managing to win 5 games and even though this isn’t a true road game, they have yet to win a game on the road. 

For this RideTheHotHand.com college basketball free pick we are going after that 12 point spread. The fact that Cal is even in the position of if they lose this game they are NIT bound is shocking. They have arguably one of the best players in the country and sure fire NBA player Ivan Rabb and with help from Jabari Bird and Charlie Moore, this team has Sweet Sixteen talent. Getting Oregon St in this game seems like a blessing but will not be if the Golden Bears fall into Oregon State’s slow down, half court style, ugly basketball plan. Cal has the athletes to push the ball up the floor and overwhelm the Beavers and we think they will. Deep down inside Cal knows they can’t just squeak by Oregon St they have to win comfortably. The fact that Cal has lost 5 of it’s last 6 games is the reason why this spread is only 12 points. That one Cal win was against who you may ask. It was a 30 point win over Oregon St, 12 days ago. THE PICK: CALIFORNIA -12.
