The oddsmakers have factored in Washington’s three-game losing streak into the odds in this one. That works in our favor here as the Huskies will be highly motivated for a victory tonight to put an end to the skid when they host Arizona. Also, their 76-81 loss at Oregon on January 26th was actually a really impressive showing.
This is a team that had won four straight before this current skid. Three of those four wins came on the road against the likes of Stanford, Cal and Washington State, while the other came at home against a very solid Colorado team.
