Oregon State vs. Arizona Pick
Will No. 17 Arizona cruise to a big win at home when the Wildcats host Oregon State tonight at 9PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Arizona is favored at home tonight, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -15 points against Oregon State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 145.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the McKale Center in Tucson, Arizona and will air live on the Pac-12 Network.
Arizona is coming off an 80-77 loss at Colorado, which snapped a long win streak for the Wildcats. Arizona is 12-4 on the season, 2-1 in the Pac-12 and 6-8-2 against the spread. The Cats are 1-2-1 ATS in their last four games. Zona is putting up 83.8 points per game this season while allowing 72.7 per game on defense. Tres Tinkle is leading Oregon State with 18.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game while Stephen Thompson Jr. is adding 16.5 points per contest.
Oregon State has won two of its last three, including a 76-57 win at home over the Colorado team that just beat Arizona. The Beavers are now 10-5 overall, 2-1 in the Pac-12 and 5-10 against the spread. Oregon State is just 2-4 ATS in its last six. The Beavers are putting up 75.3 points per game this season while allowing 62.6 per contest. Deandre Payton is leading Arizona with 20.4 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. Allonzo Trier is adding 19.6 points per contest.
Arizona has won three straight meetings with Oregon State, covering the spread in all three. The Wildcats have won those three games by at least 17 points each time. Arizona is a team coming off a tough loss, but I think the Wildcats will bounce back at home. They average 89 points at home and are holding opponents to just 66.4 per game. Oregon State may not have the offense to keep pace with the Wildcats tonight. The public betting is with Arizona tonight and I like the Wildcats as well.
