After beating soaring Arizona State at home last week it looks like the Wildcats are back on track. They are complete too with the return of Rawle Alkins.
Utah is often a thorn in the side of opponents but this is not a good mathcup for them this year. The talent is a little off (its all in the NBA) and the homecourt is manageable.
They didn’t roll over the Sun Devils but they got the win and for now I think Arizona can say they are the best team in the PAC 12. On paper for sure they are.
DeAndre Ayton continues to put up huge numbers with ease. The simple fact is that few players have the length and athleticism to slow him down.
Allonzo Trier is very good too though not the physical mismatch that Ayton is. He is smooth on the wing and sometimes it seems like he never misses.
If he stays another season it could be Alkins putting up 20ppg. He has that kind of talent and is dangerous when teams aren’t focusing on him.
Utah kicked off its PAC 12 schedule with two wins in the state of Oregon. Two low scoring affairs where they scored 66 points in each.
They may not have a ton of scoring but the Utes are balanced with 5 players averaging in double figures this season. They share the ball.
The Utes have a couple of solid bigs in David Collette and Tyler Rawson but the Wildcats have an elite big in Ayton another 7 footer too. That’s a lot for this duo.
Backcourt play will be critical too. Justin Bibbins is having a very nice season and shoots well but I am not sure I see him standing up to the pressure of Arizona in this spot.

Free Arizona Wildcats vs. Utah Jazz NCAAB Prediction:
I was surprised the number is so short on this one. Arizona is building steam and Utah is just OK.
This is a definite buying opportunity on the Cats. I don’t see this road trip as being a place they will stumble.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Arizona -4
Arizona is going to be too much for the Utes on the inside and on the perimeter. A relatively easy road win.
