The Oregon Ducks are sitting in third in the Pac-12 but still have enough time to make a run in the conference before the end of the regular season.

Meanwhile, Stanford is sitting at 7-8 and is currently in a four-way tie for sixth. Its seeding in the conference tournament is going to be determined by these last few weeks of Pac-12 action.

Oregon vs. Stanford key players to watch

Oregon

N'Faly Dante: Oregon's center has made a huge impact on the team since returning to the lineup in January, averaging 15.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.8 blocks per game. The only weakness of his game is that he coughs the ball up too often, averaging 2.3 turnovers per game. If he can cut that part out, he can help Oregon go on a run.

Stanford

Maxime Raynaud: Stanford's forward is the best player on the team, averaging 15.1 points and 10.0 rebounds per game. The Cardinal offense goes through Raynaud and if he's on his "A" game then Stanford is tough to beat.

Oregon vs. Stanford prediction and pick

Stanford is a completely different team when the Cardinal play at home, which is good enough for me to back them tonight. their effective field goal percentage improves by 9.8% when playing at home compared to on the road and now they play against an Oregon team whose opponent effective field goal percentage goes up 4.5% when the Ducks are on the road.

Keep an eye on Maxime Raynaud to have a big game for the Cardinal. Oregon allows its opponents to shoot 50.7% from two-point, which ranks 202nd in the country. With Stanford's offense primarily focus around interior shots, that could bode will for the Cardinal.

I'll back Stanford as a small home favorite.

Pick: Stanford-1.5
