Arizona vs Arizona State Prediction & Pick

Arizona did what it does best on Thursday, which is shoot the basketball. The Wildcats drained an impressive 63.9% of its shots from the floor (37-of-58) and 47.4% of its shots from three-point range (9-of-19). They have posted the fourth-best shooting percentage in the nation this year (49.7%).

That does not bode well for Arizona State's chances of pulling off an upset. The Sun Devils rank 310th in shooting percentage (41.6%) and 307th in three-point shooting percentage (31.6%.) They simply don't have the offensive depth to keep up with a team that is firing on all cylinders right now.

Arizona has won five of its last six games against Arizona State, so take the Wildcats in this one.

Final Score Prediction: Arizona: 83 | Arizona State: 74

Arizona vs Arizona State Best Bet

It's worth diving even deeper into Arizona's amazing offense here. The Wildcats are averaging 83.5 points per game (No. 3 in NCAA) as well as 19.3 assists per game (No. 2 in NCAA). They excel at finding the open man and avoiding contested shots, which helps them build comfortable late leads.

Arizona has scored more than 80 points in eight of its last 11 games, which includes when it scored 88 points in a loss to Arizona State on Feb. 25. The Sun Devils' defense has been great this season, yet it is still a unit that allows an opponent three-point shooting mark of 33.1% (No. 122 in NCAA).

Bet: Arizona Wildcats Over 80.5 Points (-116)
