Gambling911.com has your predictions for the Washington vs. Utah State game along with the latest odds.


Washington- They lost the PAC 12 tournament final to Oregon and will be sweating it out Selection Sunday.  Also look for the ability to cover in recent games as a measurement of how likely they are to perform in this year's March Madness tournament.  While they went 7-3 Straight Up, Washington failed to cover the spread in all but three games.

Utah State - They are fourth in the country in 2-point field goal percentage defense and lead the nation in defensive rebound percentage. The Aggies do commit a lot of turnovers.


ESPN.com's Preston Johnson: "There isn't much to this, but Huskies head coach Mike Hopkins was an assistant at Syracuse from 1995 until 2017. He took over the Washington basketball program and immediately made an impact installing the famous Jim Boeheim 2-3 zone. (UW ranked 20th in adjusted defensive efficiency this season.) The difficulty for teams to prepare for the zone defense on a short turnaround is no secret, and we have seen Syracuse make deep runs in the tournament in recent years despite lacking elite talent (two Final Four trips in their past three tournament appearances as a 10-seed and a 4-seed, for example). It's ultimately unlikely the Huskies are cutting down the nets in April, but as a potential long shot priced in this range, they are my favorite choice."

500-1 to win the title
