Show me some Love

The Oregon game tonite should be a great game. Both teams are coming off losses (Oregon actually is coming off two) so they both will be ready to play. This will be a big game for Kevin Love, who for most people in Oregon think he scorned them by leaving his home state and where his Dad played, to go to UCLA. The fans will be brutal and make it tough on him all night.

Throw in the fact that the Bruins may be without forwards Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Lorenzo Mata-Real because of concussions suffered in the USC game, and suddenly the Bruins are quite thin down low. This will certainly change the way the game is played.
I like Oregon.

OREGON +3.5 vs. Ucla

WASHINGTON +5 @ Arizona state
James Harden of ASU has a bad groin and is a game time decision. ASU hosts Washington, who is playing better recently. I would be surprised to see Harden play and perform well. They would be lost without him. I would also expect them to look past UW and think they could get by in this game and focus on WSU on Saturday.

I am always saying how difficult it is to win on the road, and it is. It takes a certain type of team to deliver this kind of upset. WSU is that type of team. They are 6-1 on the road and Az is not that great at home (7-2) or at least not as dominant in years past.

SOUTH ALABAMA -12.5 vs. UL Lafayette
B. Anthony has Kent state. Money has South Alabama. I can’t name one player on this team or the conference they play in, but from a statistical point of view, I like this team a lot.
