Arizona Wildcats will strive to break their six-game losing streak against a formidable Pac-12 Conference opponent in Tucson on Thursday night.

Wildcats are the favorites playing at home on Thursday.

Even after the disappointing defeat at Pauley Pavilion on Jan. 25, Arizona sportsbooks remain confident in the Wildcats’ ability to compete against Mick Cronin’s team.

BetMGM Arizona, FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, and DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona are all favoring the Wildcats by 6.5 points with -110 odds.

Arizona is the favorite to win with odds of -300 at BetMGM, -265 at FanDuel, and -280 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Caesars Sportsbook Arizona is displaying strong confidence in the Wildcats on Thursday, favoring the home team by seven points with a -320 moneyline.

The Wildcats failed to cover the spread in four of their last seven games, which included a 21-point victory over Arizona State (67-56) as favorites and a 2.5-point loss to the Bruins in their most recent matchup.

The Wildcats have a 12-7 record against the spread in college basketball betting this season, and have hit the over in 10 of their 19 games.


Will the Wildcats be able to succeed?

The Wildcats had a tough time with their shooting in their initial matchup against the Bruins, converting only 30.7% of their field goal attempts, which was one of their poorest showings of the season.

Among the five starters for Arizona, only center Christian Koloko achieved a shooting percentage of above 50%, making five out of his eight attempts. The other four starters combined to shoot nine out of 49, while the Wildcats’ three bench players made nine of their 18 shots.

On the other hand, the Bruins had a 50% field goal conversion rate in the game, with four of their starting players scoring in double digits. Jules Bernard and Johnny Juzang each added 15 points to the team’s victory.

Arizona’s starting lineup must improve their performance on Thursday, especially guards Kerr Kriisa and Dalen Terry, who missed all 17 of their field goal attempts in the first game against UCLA.

Arizona dominated the boards against UCLA, finishing with a 49-35 rebounding advantage. Guard Bennedict Mathurin led the Wildcats with 10 rebounds.
