Free NCAA Pick Thursday

#629 California +11.5 over Stanford 10:00 PM CT

A great comeback bid fell short for Stanford Sunday hosting Pac-12 leader Washington with a 62-61 final score. Stanford can reach .500 in conference play for the season and maintain an above .500 overall record with a win in this finale but covering by double-digits may be a big ask for this erratic group.

Stanford has posted six double-digit wins in Pac-12 play but has also lost three home games and playing at California the Cardinal won 84-81 just over a month ago. California led by seven with about six minutes to go in that games, then seeking its first conference win. The Bears have gone 2-0 since losing the first 15 conference games and California has lost by more than 11 just twice in the past nine games.

The strength of the Bears is creating turnovers on defense and that was a factor in the first meeting between these teams with an 18-11 edge for California. Stanford had a 30-19 edge in free throw attempts in that three-point win and this rivalry game should favor the heavy underdog especially if Daejon Davis again sits out.
