Arizona vs. Utah CBB Prediction:
Arizona looks to win their fourth straight, while Utah seeks their second consecutive victory.
Take the Over. Arizona has to much offensively for Utah to handle defensively, however the Utes can shoot the ball especially at home. Both teams like to play quick and shoot high percentages from the field. This is going to turn into a up and down, quick buckets type of game from Salt Lake on Thursday night. Over is the play.
