This season two of my colleagues — Steve Rivera of GOAZCATS.com and Anthony Gimino of TucsonNewsNow.com — and I will pick the outcomes of Pac-12 games. Odds listed are of the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas. …
Going into the bulk of Week 8 of the college football season Rivera, Gimino and I are a combined 37-23-3 against the spread in Pac-12 games.
Rivera is particularly hot, going 5-0-1 over the last two weeks. The tie was a push for Arizona’s game at Colorado last week. If the Wildcats stopped the Buffaloes on a fourth-and-15 situation late in the game, they would have covered.
This is another week to expect the unexpected with every home team once again picked to win by Las Vegas oddsmakers, including unranked USC over No. 3 Utah.
Home teams have struggled in Pac-12 play over the last two years. Visiting teams are 12-8 this season and 45-29 in the last two seasons, so chances are not every home team — Arizona, USC, Oregon State and Stanford — will emerge victorious today.
Click on the next arrow to the upper or lower right to check out who Rivera, Gimino and I are picking in the unpredictable Pac-12 this weekend.
