How To Bet The Arizona vs Washington Line

Posted by Henry Watkins on February 4, 2016 in

Most programs will tell you that maintaining a top 25 ranking is more important than sitting atop the conference, but there is a little bit of pride that comes into play when going against teams from the same conference. The Arizona Wildcats are currently ranked #23, and are tied for the best overall record of all PAC 12 teams, yet they are still down in the conference standings. They will be looking to change that when they face the Washington Huskies on Saturday. Now, whether you’re a Wildcats fan, a Huskies fan or just a fan of college basketball betting, make sure to check out our NCAA hoops odds page clicking here.

These two teams have already met this season, and it was the Wildcats who came away with a rather one-sided win. That is likely to make them a pretty big favorite for this one, but there is always the chance that the Huskies might be able to keep things a good deal closer on home court. The odds and lines for this game will be made available at on Saturday morning, so be sure to check back in then.

Why bet on the Arizona Wildcats

After taking back to back losses a couple of weeks back, the Arizona Wildcats (18-5, 6-4) have done a very nice job of righting the ship. The followed those defeats up with a pair of convincing victories that has helped them maintain their #23 national ranking. There is also the little detail of the 99-67 beating they handed the Huskies earlier this season to consider, although you do have to wonder if they can deliver a beating of that magnitude when they have to go into hostile territory. The Wildcats are playing .500 ball away from home in conference play, and won the first of their back to back road games on the schedule this week. The Wildcats are averaging 81.4 PPG, and are giving up 67.4 PPG so far this season.

Why bet on the Washington Huskies

The Huskies (15-7, 7-3) are proving to be a difficult team to put away this season, especially in conference play where 4 of their 10 games have gone into OT. The bad news for Huskies fans is that the one game they were really not competitive in this year was the one against the Arizona Wildcats. That game was a horribly one-sided affair, but it may lead the Wildcats into believing that they can just waltz into Seattle and pick up another easy win. It’s not too often that scenario plays out, though, and the Huskies will be looking to apply some early pressure that will prevent the Wildcats getting the upper hand from the off in this one. The Huskies are averaging 85.2 PPG, and are giving up 80.2 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

While I do believe that the Wildcats will do the double over Washington this season, I don’t think they will win in the same convincing style as they did the last time out. A little closer this time around, but still a win for the Wildcats.
