Clemson is 4-11 ATS in their last 15 home games.

Arizona is a young team but they've been obliterating most of their schedule as of late. Arizona (6-0) raced through the first five games of its schedule, scoring 85.2 points per game while winning by an average of 24.6. The Wildcats finished with 27 turnovers against Southern MIss, doubling their season average, but pulled out a 63-55 win behind their defense, which prevented Southern Miss from making any of its eight 3-point attempts while forcing 17 turnovers in the second half. Arizona is led by three terrific freshmen in Kaleb Tarczewski, a 7-foot center, 6-10 forward Grant Jerrett and 6-8 forward Brandon Ashley. Clemson is also young and at 5-2, they rely on their defense, allowing just 53.7ppg. But the team lost starting guard T.J. Sapp, who announced he will transfer. Arizona will take advantage of their guard situation with the depth and athleticism.
