This season two of my colleagues — Steve Rivera of GOAZCATS.com and Anthony Gimino of TucsonNewsNow.com — and I am picking the outcomes of Pac-12 games. Odds listed are of the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas. …
Gimino and Rivera remain in a dead heat with today’s three-game slate about to begin.
After both went 0-2 yesterday (as did yours truly), they look to bounce back. Oregon did not cover against Oregon State and Washington State was routed by Washington.
The difference in today’s picks that will set one above the rest: Rivera picks USC to cover its 3.5-point spread as a favorite over UCLA while Gimino is going with Jim Mora and the Bruins.
