Analysis
The Fresno State Bulldogs have just one win, and on paper look inferior to the three-win Washington Huskies. But the betting market has this number kept compact at 2, and I'm taking the underdog in this one. Fresno State and Washington are near one another on the Pomeroy scale, but the they're nowhere near one another when you look at the adjusted schedule of strength. There's a reason the Huskies are 3-1, with wins over Weber State, North Florida and Utah Tech. Then they lost to Cal Baptist on their own court. Fresno State is the best team the Huskies will have faced. And the Bulldogs are no strangers to one another, as they came into the season with eight returners from last season, including four seniors. From Isaiah Hill's scoring to Anthony Holland's rebounding, there is talent on this Bulldogs squad, and it's starting to see the chemistry come to fruition. And we'll see that tonight on defense, as Fresno State has limited 16 straight opponents in regular season games - including all four this season - to fewer than 70 points. Play the underdog in this one, as the Bulldogs grab the cash as Washington's toughest opponent.
