Washington at Utah -11 O/U 158.5 
Recommendation: Under

In a rematch of one of the most exciting games in the PAC-12 this year, the Washington Huskies travel to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Utes. In that game, Utah prevailed in overtime, 80-75. Since then the Huskies split with UCLA and USC and then both Arizona schools. Three of those four games went over the total and averaged over 80 possessions. Utah meanwhile swept both Bay Area schools but limp into this one after losing both games to the Oregon schools on the road. Washington has been playing ultra-fast all season but tonight is a unique environment as they face a slower paced team on the road at elevation. It’ll be a challenge for UW’s freshmen-heavy roster. And note that the first meeting was moderately paced by Washington standards. The two teams were tied 66-66 at the end of regulation and even with overtime, the entire game had only 77 possessions. Despite that, tonight’s total is the exact same at 158 even though it reasonable to think a team like Washington won’t have as easy a time controlling pace or scoring on the highway. And when push comes to shove, Utah is still a half court, defense-first squad under Larry Krystowiak. Even playing in the up-tempo PAC-12, the Utes’ league games still average only 65 possessions. Important game for both sides as venue and matchup indicate a play should be made on the under.
