2011 Pac-10 Basketball Tournament Lines: Stanford Favored Over Oregon State, Oregon & ASU A Pick'Em

The least interesting part of the Pac-10 tournament tips off tonight, as the four bottom-dweller teams with the worst records in the conference square off. Here's the schedule for tonight:

6 PM PT/9 PM ET -- No. 8 Stanford Cardinal (15-15, 7-11) vs. No. 9 Oregon St. Beavers (10-19, 5-13)

8:30 PM PT/11:30 PM ET -- No. 7. Oregon Ducks (14-16, 7-11) vs. No. 10 Arizona St. Sun Devils (12-18, 4-14)

Not at all an inspiring lineup. Stanford is favored by 3.5 to 4 points over Oregon State. They split the series, with each of them garnering a convincing victory at home. The Cardinal are a better team though with more talent, and they should be able to get the best of the Beavers in the matchup.

What is interesting is that Oregon is basically drawing dead-even with ASU in the eyes of Vegas (with Oregon a one point favorite in some sportsbooks, depending on where you look). This is probably due to the season sweep the Ducks suffered against the Devils, where Oregon could not break 56 points in either contest. These are not good indicators for a successful Wednesday night at Staples.

Line predictions: Furd, ASU
