Will Arizona cover tonight vs. USC?
TUCSON, AZ (Lock Labs) – Pac-12 rivals square off tonight in the McKale Center when Arizona hosts USC at 9:00PM ET. Will the Wildcats roll as a heavy favorite?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Arizona is a 23-point home favorite versus USC while the over/under total is currently sitting at 139.5 points. The Wildcats opened as 23-point favorites so there’s been no line movement with the spread, but the total opened at 138.5 so that number is up a full point at most sports books.
Even though it’s a huge number, we still like Arizona to cover the spread tonight. USC has had all kinds of trouble covering the spread in this series, whether at home or on the road. The Trojans are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games in Tucson and are 1-5 against the number in their last six meetings overall with the Wildcats. The favorite is also 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these two teams.
Arizona is also an impressive 7-1 against the spread in its last eight home games and 7-1 against the number in its last eight conference matchups. The Wildcats are 20-6 at the betting window in their last 26 home games versus a team with a losing road record as well.
