Sportsbook Report: Portland Pilots (+5.5) vs. San Diego Toreros

By Wally Jeter


Finally the start of the WCC schedule, no more pounding on Northwest scrub teams and fluffing our record. Kevin Bailey is a game time decision as usual, but I did see on sportsbook.com that the Pilots are currently underdogs by 5.5 points.
San Diego is 7-5 this season and their losses have come from top tier teams (UCLA, Xavier, San Diego State to name a few).

Last year, the Pilots and the Toreros played two close games (both ending in losses by 2 points for the Pilots), this year I think the Pilots are better and will have a good shot at winning tonight, with or without Kevin Bailey. Kenpom.com currently has the Pilots ranked #134 and the Toreros #78. The site also projects the Torero’s to win by 7. I disagree Mr. Pom. The Pilots will cover and possibly win tonight. Take it to the bank and sail with the Pilots.
