Pac-12 play continues as the Stanford Cardinal travel to Tucson to take on the Arizona Wildcats.
Arizona, coming off its worst (and only third) loss of the season to Oregon, will look to bounce right back and shake off the problems that plagued it all throughout the game over the weekend.
In Stanford’s last meeting against Arizona on New Year’s Day, the Cardinal lost by 39 points. The team was simply overwhelmed on both sides of the ball by a Wildcat team that is poised for a deep NCAA Tournament run.
Not much has changed for either team since that day, except for the fact that Arizona has Alonzo Trier back and he’s already playing solid ball for the Wildcats.
It will be a tall order for Stanford to win this game and the team will need every player to step up on both offense and defense. Offensively, it starts with forward Reid Travis. Travis is averaging 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game, while shooting a very efficient 56.7% from the field.
Travis will need to be a presence in and out of the paint of both ends of the floor. He’ll need help from junior guard Dorian Pickens, who has played some good ball for Stanford. Pickens is averaging 12.3 points on 42% shooting from the field.
On defense, Stanford will have to limit the Arizona scorers and find a way to keep the Wildcats under 80 points to have any shot to win, considering Stanford scores less than 70 on average.
The Arizona team you may have seen over the weekend against Oregon is not the Arizona team you should expect to see for the rest of the year. The Ducks were simply unstoppable, unable to miss a shot, and Arizona played a bad game.
This Wildcat team is still one of the top team’s in the country and you should expect a big statement from this team on Wednesday night.
The loss against Oregon was just the team’s third loss and it’s first in the Pac-12 conference. Expect big games from freshman Lauri Markkanen and sophomore Allonzo Trier against Stanford.
Markkanen has had a great season, averaging just under 16 points per game along with 7.5 rebounds. He should nearly 49% from behind the arc, and 51% from the field. He’s one of the most efficient shooters in the country and he’ll look to exploit the Stanford defense from the perimeter.
Trier, in his five games since coming back from suspension, has been very solid, averaging over 14 points per game. He had a standout performance against Oregon State, scoring 18 points on 6-11 shooting off the bench.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Stanford is 2-3 ATS in the last five games
- The Total has gone UNDER in three of Arizona’s last five games
Free Stanford Cardinal vs. Arizona Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
Arizona will be playing angry after that terrible 27-point loss to Oregon over the weekend. I don’t think there’s any chance Stanford beats this team. Arizona gets the W at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Arizona -13.5
Despite a horrible loss to Oregon, Arizona is still one of the best teams in the nation and should easily beat this Stanford Cardinal team. I like Arizona to cover the spread here.
