Washington is in dire need of a big time win, and this is going to be a tough one to get the job done. The club has lost three games in a row and has dropped two of three from an ATS standpoint. The weapons are there, especially from G CJ Wilcox, who is one of the top scorers in the Pac-12 at 19.0 points per game. If he can get the job done from the outside, there is no reason to think that U-Dub doesn’t at least have a shot at pulling off this upset. Arizona rebounded from its terrible loss at home against the UCLA Bruins to beat the USC Trojans by 24 points. Still, this is a team that feels like it has something wrong with it. The offense is there, but the defense has been wildly inconsistent, holding two of the last five foes to 50 and 54 points, but allowing 70 or more to the other three. The club has gone just 2-5 ATS in spite of the fact that it is 5-2 SU, and this could be problematic. This one means a heck of a lot more to Washington than it does to Arizona, and we think that this could be an upset in the making at Alaska Airlines Arena.
