Washington at TCU Pick and Prediction of the Day.
Washington at TCU is a rematch from a neutral site game played four days ago. These are familiar opponents by now and in this Battle of the Purple, TCU looks to get two in a row on the Huskies. Yes, this was Pick of the Day four days ago! It is Pick of the Day AGAIN. Yes, the pick is going to be the same because the oddsmakers just do not learn. This is going to be a brief analysis because this has been done already.
Washington’s offense should be improved from their performance four days ago. Markelle Fultz carried his team while the rest of the team struggled offensively despite scoring 80 points in a 93-80 loss. The team shot terribly from three point range against the Horned Frogs. This could turn out very differently considering that this team never shot below 36.8% in a game prior to TCU.
Washington and TCU played at a pace of 80 possessions in their previous game and this one should be played at a similar pace. Washington will play their usual defense and TCU’s defense should not be expected to change much either. The only difference is that Washington has to travel to Fort Worth for this one and do it in a hostile environment.
TCU has a potent enough offense to keep up and beat Washington again. This should be a shootout and the bookmakers adjusted somewhat with their opening line on the total. The OVER is the play here again.
Prediction: TCU 88 Washington 82 (OVER 160.5)
Pick of the Day is 11-8 on the season after yesterday’s miss on the Under for the NDSU-Xavier game.
