Stanford vs. Arizona
The Cardinals broke a three-game losing streak by beating Utah on Saturday as Reid Travis had 26 points. "I got some quick ones in the second half and that really gave me confidence after sitting that long in the first half," said Travis who was 11 of 15 from the field. "I like some of the things we did in terms of disguising him, getting him in different positions," Stanford coach Jerod Haase said. "Bottom line: he was very aggressive."
Stanford is scoring about 69 points per game while giving up 69 per contest. The Cardinal are 3-4 ATS on the road with five of the seven games going under the total.
Arizona is coming off a bad loss to Oregon last time out as they were crushed 85-58. It was the first time Arizona had lost by more than 10 points since the 2012-2013 season. “To our team’s credit, one of the things we’re most proud of is that it’s been a long, long time since we’ve been blown out,” Arizona head coach Sean Miller said, “A long time. Six years. There aren’t a lot of teams or programs that can say that. It’s a source of pride, but that’s not the case right now.”
Miller said that it is very important his team bounce back in a big way on Wednesday night saying, “We got blown out in our last game and it’s important that we respond. I use college football as an example quite a bit because it’s so different in college basketball. We don’t have a week in between. It’s not a 12-game season, it’s a 35-game season. You play teams twice, not once, sometimes even three times. You have to bounce back quickly. Three days, sometimes one day in between, so we have to be ready for a team that we’ve already played (in Stanford) and a team that I think has improved. Cal…is a very good team as well.”
Arizona is just 4-6-2 ATS at home with six games going over the total and six games going under. The Wildcats are scoring 75 points per game while giving up 64 per contest.
The Cardinal are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings at Arizona. The Cardinal are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 road games. The Wildcats are 0-3-2 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Under is 5-1 in the Cardinal last 6 road games. The Under is 5-2-1 in the Wildcats last 8 home games. The Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings at Arizona.
College Basketball Predictions
This should be a perfect spot for Arizona to dominate in a big fashion. They get a Stanford team coming off a big win that is poor on the road. I will lay the points and take Arizona in this contest.
