Arizona is coming off Saturday's 95-72 victory over Washington, extending the Wildcats' winning streak to four games. Oregon has been playing some solid basketball lately, too. The Ducks improved to 4-1 over their last five games with a 68-56 win over Utah thanks to a game-high 18 points from Jermaine Couisnard.

Arizona vs Oregon Prediction & Pick

Arizona will be out for revenge tonight after an 87-68 road loss to Oregon back on Jan. 14. The Wildcats are a completely different beast at McKale Center, where they're 11-1 while averaging 84.9 PPG with a plus-16.6 scoring margin.

Arizona's fantastic playmaking (19.3 assists per game, No. 2) leads to a ton of open looks for its shooters, who average 8.2 threes (T-No. 78) on 35.8% shooting (No. 83). Fortunately for the Wildcats, Oregon's perimeter defense leaves much to be desired, allowing opponents to hit 7.6 threes (T-No. 227) with a 33.2% success rate (No. 143).

Furthermore, Oregon has losing records both on the road against Pac-12 schools (2-3) and as the underdog (3-5) this season. With the Wildcats being 4-1 against conference competition at home and winning 19 of their last 20 games at McKale Center, I see Arizona defeating Oregon tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Arizona: 78 | Oregon: 71

Arizona vs Oregon Best Bet

There's a good chance that Oregon keeps things closer than the 7.5-point spread implies. While the Ducks have been average against the spread this season, they tend to up their game against Arizona, going 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings between these Pac-12 rivals.

On top of that, the Wildcats are only 5-6-1 ATS at home this season and are only 4-6-1 ATS against Pac-12 schools overall. Considering how Oregon has also covered the spread in each of its last five trips to McKale Center, this game should wind up being closer than expected — especially after the Ducks already beat the Wildcats this month.

Bet: Oregon +7.5 (-102)
