Wildcats Incapable of Covering Vs Bruins

After a rocky start to their Pac-12 schedule, the Arizona Wildcats will look to climb within half a game of first in the conference when they host the UCLA Bruins on Friday. If history is any indication, Arizona may be fade worthy as they are just 1-7 ATS in their past eight games against UCLA.

Shark Bites
  • UCLA is 1-5 SU and ATS in their past six road games.
  • The UNDER is 8-4 in the past 12 games between Arizona and UCLA.
  • Arizona is 7-1 ATS in their last eight as a double-digit favorite at home.

The line opened with Arizona at -11 and if that holds true at tip-off, it will be the 13th time this season the Wildcats have closed as double-digit favorites. Arizona has gone 9-4 ATS when favored by double-digits this season while averaging 89.5 points in those games. Ryan Anderson has been unstoppable for the Wildcats recently as the senior has recorded a double-double in each of the past four games while averaging 22 points and 12.3 rebounds.

If UCLA wants to get off the bubble and ensure themselves an at-large bid, they will need to pick up their road play within the conference. The Bruins are just 1-4 SU and ATS on the road against other Pac-12 teams this season while scoring a measly 75.4 points. Isaac Hamilton’s consistency has been a bright spot for UCLA, as the junior has scored double-digit points in 19 consecutive games.
