Stanford Cardinal

The Johnny Dawkins era at Stanford is over as the Cardinal reached the NCAA Tournament just once in his tenure and last year the team didn’t even finish with a winning record. Taking over as head coach will be Jerod Haase who was at UAB.  The Cardinal will have to find a way to replace Rosco Allen who averaged 15.6 points per game last season but at least Stanford does return Reid Travis who played in just eight games before getting hurt last season. Reid was averaging 12.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game before his injury.

Other than Allen the Cardinal returns most of their players from last season. The only newcomers who might make an impact are Trevor Stanback who is 6’11 and Kodye Pugh who is 6’8.

2016-2017 Stanford Cardinal Betting

The Cardinal have a talented backcourt with Dorian Pickens and Marcus Allen leading the way. Last season it was Pickens averaging 12.3 points per game as a sophomore. Allen also averaged double-figures last season but he was wildly inconsistent. The Cardinal have plenty of depth in the backcourt with Malcolm Allen, Marcus Sheffield and Robert Cartwright. There is a good chance that Stanford goes with a three-guard lineup this season.

The frontcourt is solid with Travis leading the way and with Humphrey providing support.

Stanford Cardinal Picks

The Cardinal have a chance to be a decent team this season with four players who should score in double figures. Travis should lead the way but there are plenty of players who can produce on a nightly basis for Stanford.

The key for Stanford will be to find some outside shooting as they were last in the Pac-12 last season in three-point shooting. If they can get some outside shooting then the Cardinal could be a threat in the Pac-12 this season although their best hope is to finish with a winning record and qualify for a tournament like the NIT or CBI.
