Alabama vs. Arizona Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Alabama vs. Arizona 12/9/17

Can Arizona stay unbeaten at home and pick up a win over Alabama when the two meet up tonight at 10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Arizona is favored at home tonight, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -9 points against Alabama. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 150 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the McKale Center in Tucson, Arizona and will air live on ESPN2.

Alabama is coming off a 68-64 win over Rhode Island this week to improve to 7-2 on the season. The Tide have alternated wins and losses over their last five games. Alabama is just 3-4-1 against the spread this season, going 0-3-1 ATS in their last four contests. Alabama is averaging just 79 points per game on offense while holding opponents to 69.8 per game. Collin Sexton is putting up 20.8 points per game to lead the team. He is dealing with an eye injury, but is expected to play tonight. Donta Hall is adding 11.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per game for the Tide.

Arizona is coming off a 67-64 win over Texas A&M this week for its third straight victory. The Wildcats are 6-3 on the season and 3-5-1 against the spread. Arizona is averaging 83.6 points per game on offense while allowing 73 per game on defense. Allonzo Trier is leading the team with 22 points per game while Deandre Ayton is adding 19.6 points and 11.2 rebounds per game.

Bet on Alabama vs. Arizona

These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight’s clash. After a three-game losing streak, Arizona seems to have gotten back on track. The Wildcats have covered in seven straight against SEC opponents while Alabama is 8-18 ATS in their last 26 games following a win. Arizona has played the tougher competition as well, which should help if things get close in the later stages of the game. The public betting is siding with Arizona and I think the Wildcats will be able to handle themselves at home.
