San Diego State vs Arizona Prediction & Pick

San Diego State entered this season with one of its most balanced rosters in years and that has been proven through its first four games. The Aztecs rank among the top 50 teams in offensive efficiency and among the top 100 teams in defensive efficiency. They are getting the job done on both ends.

However, stopping Arizona from draining buckets is a nightmare for any team right now. The Wildcats ranks first in the country when it comes to points per game (104.3), shooting percentage (62.9%) and free throws attempted per game (33.3). I'm going to back the Wildcats until there's a reason not to.

Final Score Prediction: San Diego State: 80 | Arizona: 88
