Will No. 9 Arizona have any trouble on the road when the Wildcats take on Washington State tonight at 10PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Arizona is favored on the road, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -12 points against Washington State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 151.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Friel Court in Pullman, Washington and will air live on the Pac-12 Network.
Arizona has won six straight following a 74-73 win over Utah at home this past weekend. The Wildcats are 18-4 overall, 8-1 in the Pac-12 and 7-13-2 against the spread. Arizona is averaging 81.7 points per game on offense while allowing 71.5 per contest.

Washington State has lost three straight, including an 80-62 loss at Washington this past weekend. The Cougars are 9-11 overall, 1-7 in the Pac-12 and 9-10 against the spread. Washington State is averaging 74.4 points per game on offense while allowing 75.2 per contest. Robert Franks is leading Washington State with 17.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Malachi Flynn is adding 14.7 points and 4 assists per contest.
Arizona has won 10 straight meetings with Washington State, going 9-1 against the spread in those 10 games. However, I like the Cougars with the points tonight. Arizona has not been covering, going just 1-6 ATS in its last seven. That includes a loss at Colorado and a close game at Stanford. Washington State hasn’t been covering either, but the Cougars are coming off a three-game road trip and should get a boost from returning home. The public betting is backing Arizona tonight, but I will take the home team with the big spread.
