PAC-12 play continues as the #5 ranked Arizona Wildcats head to Oregon to take on an Oregon State Beavers team that doesn’t look poised to win many games this year.
The Beavers have yet to win a game in the conference and it would take a perfect game to beat the strong Wildcats.
Arizona happens to be one of the best defensive teams in the league, as well as a pretty solid offense. The Wildcats give up just 63.1 points per game, putting them 22nd in the nation. Meanwhile, the team scores about 76.3 points per game, giving it a plus-13.2 point differential on the year.
Against a very poor Oregon State team, the Wildcats’ defense should have no problem shutting it down.
Offensively, Arizona has six players who average double figures in points.
The team is led by Finnish freshman forward Lauri Markkanen. Markkanen is having a great first year playing collegiate ball, averaging 16.8 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. He also shoots almost 53% from the field.
The team also gets some efficient scoring from freshman guard Kobi Simmonds. Kobi averages 11.8 points per game and shoots 80% from the free throw line.
Add in the recently cleared Allonzo Trier, who has played the last three games for the Wildcats, and you have an extremely tough team to beat. Trier is already finding his place this season, averaging 13.7 points per game.
Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State has a tough time on both sides of the ball. The Beavers are a bad offensive team, averaging just 64.5 points per game. The team is 331st in the nation out of 351 teams in that category.
What limited scoring there is is led by sophomore forward Tres Tinkle. He is averaging 20.2 points and 8.3 assists in the six games he’s played this year.
Unfortunately, Tres has been and remains out after breaking his wrist and his return will definitely not happen against Arizona.
The team has struggled immensely since his departure and the brunt of the offense has fallen on guard Stephen Thompson Jr. He’s averaging 17.1 points per game but his shooting leaves much to be desired.
He’s shooting just 41% from the field.
Help has come from Drew Eubanks, who averages about 15 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. He’s been impressive, shooting 59% from the field.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Arizona is 2-3 ATS in the last five games
- The OVER is 3-2 in Oregon State’s last five games
