Oregon at Arizona -7.5 O/U 150.5 
Recommendation: Arizona

Oregon and Arizona will do battle in Tucson tonight in a key PAC-12 clash. Oregon is 5-2 in PAC-12 play and tied with Washington for top spot in the conference while Arizona is just 4-3 inside the conference so the Wildcats will be looking to draw even with the Ducks in the PAC-12 standings. Oregon enters this game off back-to-back impressive home wins against USC and UCLA but they have not been as strong away from Eugene with a 1-3 SU record. The Ducks have been known to have excellent guard play for years under Dana Altman but this year, they boast a very imposing frontcourt with the likes of Dillon Brooks, Elgin Cook, Jordan Bell and Chris Boucher. That strength inside though will be tested and even negated to a large extent by Arizona which has had plenty of quality low post players with Kaleb Tarczewski, Ryan Anderson and Mark Tollefsen averaging a collective 34.2 points and 21.8 rebounds per game. Arizona has been able to survive and fight through some personnel depletion with shooting guard Elliott Pitts having missed the last five games (3-2 SU/ATS during that span) due to a personal matter as well as talented freshman guard Allonzo Trier who remains out indefinitely with a broken hand. Arizona has been a juggernaut squad once again here at the McKale Center this season at 11-0 SU and 7-4 ATS. We should see an inspired and motivated effort from Arizona off a hard fought, tough 74-73 road loss at California on Saturday. The last time Arizona was in this exact situation of returning home following a road loss in PAC-12 play, they went on to annihilate Washington 99-67 as -14 home favorites earlier this month. This was repeatedly a nightmare matchup for Oregon last season as the Ducks lost all three meetings against the Arizona by margins of 18, 34 and 28 points with the latter defeat coming in the PAC-12 Tournament. Look for the home side to post a commanding win.
