The Utah Utes will travel to Palo Alto and take on the Stanford Cardinal for some Pac-12 action Thursday night from the Maples Pavillion.


Utah Utes

The Utes are 1-2 this month, but they are enduring one of the nastiest skids in school history, dropping 12 of their last 13 games. Utah desperately missed big man Branden Carlson throughout the month of January, and he scored a season-high 25 points in the road loss to Colorado last time out.

Utah is 9-16 this season, with an abysmal 2-13 record in Big East play.

Craig Smith's team is averaging 70.5 points per game on 41.6% shooting, while allowing 70.3 points per game. Marco Anthony (9.1ppg, 7.7rpg) came from Utah State with Coach Smith, and he's double-doubled in back-to-back games.


Stanford Cardinal

The Cardinal are 3-3 this month, with two of those losses coming at home to Washington State and UCLA. Stanford picked up a double-digit win in Corvallis against Oregon State last time, covering along the way.

Stanford is 15-10 this season, with a 8-7 record in Pac-12 play.

Jerod Haase's team is averaging 68.2 points per game on 44.1% shooting, while allowing 68.6 points per game. First-year forward Harrison Ingram scored 16 points in the win over the Beavers, and he leads the team in scoring (11.6) and rebounding (6.6).



Utah is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

UTA is 0-6 SU in their last 6 road games.

Stanford is 2-3 ATS in their last 5 games.

STAN is 3-3 SU in their last 6 home games.



Utah can't be trusted or feared on the road at this point, so I'm going to sway Stanford's way at home. Stanford is a solid team with the size to combat the few strengths the Utes come in with, and the margin feels manageable. 

Take Stanford's spread Thursday night.

PICK: Stanford 4.5 (-110)
