LINE MOVEMENT: Arizona opened as an 11.5-point favorite but the spread has been bet up to 12.5 at most sports books. As for the total, it’s gone from 139 to 139.5.

FREE PICK: Take Arizona. According to latest college basketball trends, Colorado is 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games following a SU win of more than 20 points. Arizona is 11-1 ATS in their last 12 Thursday games, 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. win. Arizona has a chance to record its best start in 80 years. Standing in its way is a Colorado team it lost to in the Pac-12 tournament championship last season. 

These teams also split their last two regular-season matchups and will open conference play Thursday night in Tucson. The third-ranked Wildcats have matched their best start since the 1987-88 team opened with 12 victories en route to the Final Four. Arizona is now seeking to start with 13 wins for the first time since the 1931-32 squad was 16-0. Colorado beat Arizona 53-51 in the title game. That prevented the Wildcats from gaining an NCAA tournament berth. Arizona beat San Diego State last Tuesday in the championship game of the Diamond Head Classic. Nick Johnson blocked a layup attempt by Aztecs guard Chase Tapley in the closing seconds to preserve the victory. Solomon Hill scored 21 points and was named tournament MVP. Thursday marks the Pac-12 debut of Mark Lyons, a Xavier transfer averaging 13.4 points to lead Arizona. Freshman starters Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski are other newcomers that have made the Wildcats an improved team. The Buffaloes have dropped two of three road contests, falling 90-54 to then-No. 9 Kansas on Dec. 8 in their lone away game against a ranked foe. Arizona gets revenge in this game.
