Washington Arizona Betting Tips – Arizona Faces Must-Win Situation Versus Washington Wednesday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/18/2013 6:46:01 PM

The No. 9 Arizona Wildcats hit a bit of a speed bump with back-to-back losses to California and Colorado last week. After bouncing back with a win over Utah, the Wildcats will look to build some momentum and put together consecutive wins when they host the Washington Huskies this Wednesday night. Arizona’s mini-skid dropped them to second in the Pac-12, one game back of Oregon for first in the conference. The biggest problem is that the Wildcats already lost their only meeting of the sports betting season against the Ducks back in January, which means they will need to win and get some help to retake the top spot.

The Huskies couldn’t take care of business against Arizona at home in the first meeting between these teams, ultimately dropping a 57-53 decision. Washington has lost seven of its last nine overall, with its only two wins over that span coming at home against Arizona State and Oregon State.

Junior guard CJ Wilcox has been an absolute stud for the Huskies this season, averaging a team-high 17.6 points per game to go with nearly five rebounds. The problem for Washington has been inconsistent play around Wilcox all season, meaning that when he goes cold the team can’t win. Wilcox broke out of a shooting slump with 24 points in last week’s win over the Beavers and needs to build on that performance, and it will certainly help if Shawn Kemp Jr. and Jernaud Jarreau can continue to step up their game the way they did against Oregon State.

The Wildcats have done a good job at the offensive end of the floor with senior guard Mark Lyons averaging a team-high 15.2 points per game for a team that ranks in the top-50 in scoring. Lyons and Solomon Hill both had 10 points in the initial win over the Huskies, while Nick Johnson scored a game-high 15 as Arizona rallied from a five-point halftime deficit for the online betting win. The Wildcats need to play a more consistent game and not go through the types of cold stretches that they did in the first half of their initial meeting with Washington, as it has come back to cost them in games against better teams.

College Basketball Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Considering that the Huskies couldn’t handle the Wildcats at home, it’s hard to imagine them going in to Arizona and pulling off the upset win. Arizona is playing with a renewed sense of urgency and focus as they simply can’t afford to drop another game, and they should have no problem at home against a Washington team that has been awful on the road in the Pac-12 this season.
