College Basketball Betting Trends

Oregon State

The road team is 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings. The Beavers are 9-19 ATS in their last 28 games when the total is set between 130 and 139.5 points.

Arizona

The Wildcats are 4-1 straight up in the last five meetings. Arizona is 3-2 ATS in the last five meetings.

Prediction:

The Wildcats had a puzzling home loss to UCLA a few games ago, but aside from that they have been very solid as of late and are very deserving of their spot in the top 25. The Wildcats struggled to an 82-65 loss at Oregon State last month, so this is a revenge spot and with them playing much better right now I like the hosts to roll here. Oregon State is not very good defensively and its offense has taken a step back lately. The hosts should have their way.
