How To Bet On Arizona Washington – A Proving-Ground Moment Arrives In The Pac-12

Posted by Washington Tucker on 1/29/2013 5:55:19 PM

The Arizona Wildcats might be ranked in the top 10, but they need to show they can win a road game in a tough environment. The Washington Huskies need to get a big win on their resume.

Why Arizona Will Win

Legal online sports betting analysts know that when they size up a game, they are generally well advised to take the more talented team. Arizona is the more talented team in this matchup. The Wildcats are good, and they've lost only twice this season, but the thing that jumps out at college hoops observers is that this team really hasn't yet flexed its muscles. Arizona won its two biggest games of the season – against Florida and San Diego State in December – by one point apiece. The Wildcats have not yet drilled a really good opponent this season. They have not played many complete games because their shot selection is spotty. They do not impose their athleticism on their foes, and they're waiting to do so in this game in Seattle.

Washington just isn't as consistent as it used to be. The Huskies have not defended their home court with the same degree of reliability they showed in the past, when they had the talent to make the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. Washington has lost at home to Albany, Nevada, Colorado State, and Utah, an unthinkable four-pack of setbacks a few years ago, when the Huskies regularly made the Big Dance. Arizona should be able to neutralize Washington on the perimeter and outclass the Huskies in the paint. The Huskies will have to play their best game of the year to win, while Arizona's margin for error is much greater.

Why Washington Will Win

When NCAA football betting gurus – who are looking for something to handicap over the next seven months before the 2013 pigskin season begins – catch a look at this basketball battle, they will realize that Washington, whose resume is bereft of high-quality wins, will treat this game as a Super Bowl, not the Ravens-49ers clash on Sunday in New Orleans. Washington has not yet won a game against one of the Pac-12's elite teams. The Huskies have not yet played UCLA. They have lost to Oregon, and they won't play Arizona State until Feb. 2, two days after this game against Arizona. The Huskies know that this upcoming two-game home swing against the Arizona schools means so much to the progress and the eventual outcome of their season. They are going to play with more intensity on defense and more overall commitment at both ends of the floor.

The other thing to mention about this game is that Arizona does not yet own a quality win in Pac-12 play, with the possible exception of a win at Arizona State. The Wildcats got drubbed at home by UCLA, leading a lot of observers to think that this team is overrated. It might not be ready to win in Seattle, which has been a hard place for Arizona to play over the years.

Who Will Win

It’s likely that this game will go down to the wire. Arizona is the more battle-hardened team, though, and the Wildcats have to feel that they have an extra gear they can reach in a high-pressure situation.
