The No. 6 Arizona Wildcats aim to add to their winning streak when they visit the rival Washington Huskies for a Pac-12 showdown on Saturday.

Arizona has tallied victories in three consecutive games, most recently defeating Washington State 63-58 behind a strong defensive effort. Meanwhile, Washington is on a 4-1 run over its last five games, adding to its momentum with Thursday's 69-66 overtime win over Arizona State.

Will Arizona win again to inch closer to the Pac-12's top spot? Or will Washington pull off a major upset on the home court?

Arizona vs Washington Prediction & Pick

Arizona shouldn't break much of a sweat tonight due to it having a clear offensive advantage. The Wildcats average 82.3 points (No. 6) on 48.6% shooting (No. 12) with 19.0 assists per game (No. 2). Meanwhile, the Huskies operate at a 69.8 PPG clip (No. 192) with a 43.2 field-goal percentage (No. 215) while averaging 11.7 assists (No. 264).

Arizona has the advantage in the paint as well, averaging 41.2 rebounds (No. 4) compared to Washington's 34.9 RPG (No. 161). Considering how the Huskies have also lost seven of their last eight home games against the Wildcats, I like Arizona's odds of winning tonight even more.

Final Score Prediction: Arizona: 83 | Washington: 70

Arizona vs Washington Best Bet

Regardless of the opponent, Washington's games tend to feature more points than projected. Not only is the over 5-1 in the Huskies' last six games, but it's also 10-3 in their last 13 at home. Furthermore, the over has been hit in four of the last six Arizona-Washington collisions.

With a high-scoring contest always a possibility due to Arizona's elite offense, I see the total going over 151.5 points as tonight's best bet.

Bet: Over 151.5 Points (-110)
