College Basketball Betting Trends
The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. Arizona is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games as a favorite.
The Beavers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog. The underdog is 2-5 ATS n the last seven meetings.
The Wildcats have had a rough patch lately, but nearly took down Oregon on the road and played current top-ranked Gonzaga very tough at home. The performance they would like to have back is against St. John's, but they even played very well for a decent portion of that contest. Arizona gets an exploitable Beavers squad here, one that is very competent offensively but has defensive deficiencies. The Wildcats can get it done at both ends and look for their talent to overwhelm OSU down the strech.
