Washington Worth A Look As A Big Dog

The Washington Huskies will aim to remain undefeated in conference play on Thursday when they visit the No.18 ranked Arizona Wildcats. Washington comes into the game as a huge underdog, a spot that has proven valuable to bettors, as the Huskies are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog of 12.5-points or more.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 4-12 SU in the last 16 games between Arizona and Washington.
  • Arizona is 9-0 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games coming off four days rest.
  • Washington is 8-2 SU in their past 10 games.

Washington has opened their Pac-12 slate with three consecutive wins, but those wins have come by a combined nine points. Senior Andrew Andrews continues to be one of the best players that nobody is talking about as the guard is averaging 21.6 points per game this season, including a 29.3 point average in conference play.

A loss in this game will mean that Arizona is on their first three-game losing streak in six years. Though the Wildcats lost their last two games by a combined five points, they have allowed 95 points per game in those contests. Arizona has also lost their best offensive player as freshman Allonzo Trier will be out 4-to-6 weeks with a hand injury.
