NCAAB: Washington vs. Seattle December 13, 2012 - 10:00 PM
Capper: Ben Burns https://experts.covers.com/Handicapper/Ben_BurnsPick:
I'm already 2-0 with this Seattle team this season. I successfully backed the Redhawks in their first game, a blowout win over Montana State.
I also played on the Redhawks in their most recent game, an outright upset at Eastern Washington. While the Huskies certainly represent a big step up in class, I feel that the Redhawks are again providing excellent value. Its not uncommon to see "smaller" schools play with added emotion when matched up against a lager school from within their state.
My play on Portland State last night was a perfect example. The Vikings were hosting "instate rival" Oregon State. Fired up at a chance to knock off a school from a larger conference, the Vikings came out on fire, eventually earning the cover.
Facing the "mighty" Huskies, I expect the Redhawks to also come out with some added intensity here.
The Huskies are just 2-3 ATS as favorites this season. They're also 2-3 ATS the last few seasons, as road favorites in the 6.5 to 9 range.
The Redhawks hung within eight points of Washington last season. Now a member of the WAC Conference, the Redhawks catch the Huskies dealing with a few bangs and bruises, while still adjusting to life without Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten Jr, last year's leading scorers.
Playing with a chip on their shoulder, I expect the Redhawks to give their "high profile" guests all that they can handle. Consider taking the points. If you don't currently have an Expert account, simply sign up and recieve 2 FREE Guaranteed Winners. https://experts.covers.com/
