Pac-10 Conference Tournament

This was a nightmare season for the Pacific-10 as both UCLA and USC went belly-up, leaving only three teams worth considering for the Pac-10 title.

But we have nine teams in the tournament; the winner of Wednesday’s “play-in” game at Staples Center earns the opportunity to lose to No. 1 California in Thursday’s quarterfinals. The Pac 10 basketball odds are as close as they have been in recent memory, meaning some upset value should be on your betting ticket.

No. 8 Oregon vs. No. 9 Washington State (11:00 p.m ET) - {URL=http://www.oddsshark.com/Stats/Matchups/Basketball/NCAAB/23}[ Pac 10 basketball matchups ] {/URL}

USC is under a self-imposed postseason ban, so the last-place Cougars (16-14 SU, 10-18 ATS) will play the Ducks (15-15 SU, 11-16 ATS) in the first round. Oregon (-2.5 point spread) beat Wazzu 74-66 in Eugene to end the regular season on a 3-1 SU and ATS mini-run. The Cougs have lost six of their last seven at 2-5 ATS.

No. 4 Arizona vs. No. 5 UCLA (3:00 p.m. ET) - {URL=http://www.oddsshark.com/Stats/Matchups/Basketball/NCAAB/23}[ Pac 10 basketball matchups ] {/URL}

Moving on to Thursday’s action, the Bruins (13-17 SU, 12-15 ATS) were expected to struggle after losing players like Darren Collison to the NBA. But things went worse than expected. UCLA has been softened by injuries and is 1-4 SU and ATS in its last five games. The Wildcats (16-14 SU, 15-13-1 ATS) have beaten the Bruins twice this year at 2-0 ATS.

No. 3 Washington vs. No. 6 Oregon State (9:00 p.m. ET) - {URL=http://www.oddsshark.com/Stats/Matchups/Basketball/NCAAB/23}[ Pac 10 basketball matchups ] {/URL}

The Huskies (21-9 SU, 12-17 ATS) started Pac-10 play by losing three of four at 0-4 ATS, but ended strong at 4-0 SU and ATS. The season finale saw Washington invade Corvallis and beat the Beavers (14-16 SU, 17-8 ATS) 82-70 as 4-point favorites at Bovada. The OSU gold rush has dried out at 2-3 SU and ATS since last month’s upset over Cal (-6).

No. 2 Arizona State vs. No. 7 Stanford (11:30 p.m. ET) - {URL=http://www.oddsshark.com/Stats/Matchups/Basketball/NCAAB/23}[ Pac 10 basketball matchups ] {/URL}

Will only one team from the Pac-10 make the NCAA Tournament? The Sun Devils (22-9 SU, 12-15 ATS) need to win the conference to go dancing. They’re 6-2 SU and 3-5 ATS in their last eight, losing at Washington (-5) and Cal (-7). But they did beat the Cardinal (13-17 SU, 11-16-1 ATS) home and away, covering both times.
