Among the many conferences to make a basketball bet on it’s tough to beat the PAC-10 in terms of talent from top to bottom. And tonight, anyone looking to make a college basketball bet will be hard pressed to find a better college basketball betting offering than the number four ranked Cougars of Washington State and the UCS Trojans.
College Basketball betting season thus far has been fantastic and with many more conference match ups on the schedule like this one, it will take great restraint not to partake in a basketball bet or two. Washington State has come out of nowhere in the past two years to rise to the number four spot in the basketball betting polls. And their success is the result of a rare combination of teamwork and determination, something that is often lacking in basketball betting –certainly at the pro level and often in college as well.
The Cougs don’t win because they have better talent, because they certainly don’t, but they have gone undefeated in the basketball betting thus far because they make the extra pass, they bend their knees on defense and they play as a team. And in order to keep their perfect basketball betting record tonight they will have to continue their near flawless play against a tough USC team.
The Trojans have been up and down and one of the most inconsistent teams in basketball betting thus far. Although unranked at the moment, the Trojans are a team that could beat just about anyone of the top 25 basketball betting teams on any given day. Led by super freshman OJ Mayo the Trojans are a formidable force in basketball betting despite their 0-2 conference record in PAC-10 basketball bet situations.
WSU will play very tough defense and look to shut down Mayo’s offense by constantly rotating fresh legs into cover him and help out with double team when necessary. Mayo’s averaging 20 points a game, among the best scoring average for a freshman in basketball betting, but against WSU’s tough defense he’s going to have to find his open teammates and rely on their scoring if the Trojans are to win.
On the road this could be stumbling block for the Cougs, but thanks to their veteran leaders and good coaching expect the Cougs to win tonight and keep their basketball betting record perfect. But even if they make it through tonight’s basketball betting show down without a loss, the team faces its toughest game of the year on Saturday when it travels to UCLA to take on the number five ranked Bruins.
