Against The Spread Pick
These two teams are neck in neck in terms of their records. Oregon sits at 14 in the AP top 25, while Arizona is not too far back at number 24. Oregon has a 20-7 record, and Arizona is right behind them at 19-7. This is one of the tougher games of the night as both teams are trying to stay afloat for the PAC-12 championship. Arizona is 2nd, behind Colorado, and Oregon is 4th, and still highly in the running to be the PAC-12 champs. Arizona is 4-1 in their last five games, while Oregon is 2-3. It’s a tough pick tonight, and I like Arizona more over their last five. Especially this late in the season, look for Arizona to continue their good play in order to make the tournament and possibly win the PAC-12 championship. It’s a close one, but I like Arizona tonight.
Over Under Pick
Over the last five games Oregon and Arizona have been averaging 66 and 72 points per game, respectively. Arizona is top 20 in defensive efficiency this season and Oregon’s defense, while not being great, over the last five games they have held every opponent to under 80 points. With both teams in the race for the PAC-12 championship, and with this game having so much impact on the PAC-12 standings, I would expect both teams to buckle down on defense in their fight for the PAC-12. I think defense will prevail tonight. Take the under.
