Fact Checked by Young Ruth

As Jedd Fisch enters his third year as head coach, the Arizona Wildcats are filled with optimism as they begin the season with their highest preseason win total in four years.

Following a 5-7 season and breaking a five-game losing streak against Arizona State, the Wildcats are determined to enhance their performance and garner interest on Arizona sports betting websites.

The path to redemption begins on September 2nd with a home game against Northern Arizona, followed by away games against Mississippi State and a home game against UTEP to finish out the non-conference schedule.

Yengols.com reviewed the Wildcats’ preseason win totals over the last ten years, except for the shortened 2020 season due to COVID-19, to determine their performance at the end of each year.

Caesars Sportsbook Arizona has USC as the top pick to win the Pac 12 with odds of +170, while Oregon and Washington are both tied for second place with odds of +330.

Arizona holds the ninth rank with odds of +5500.

Predicting the behavior of the recent wildcats is proving to be difficult.

The Wildcats have had a pattern since 2013 of either surpassing or falling short of their preseason win totals, with four seasons exceeding expectations and four seasons failing to meet them.

In 2014, Arizona achieved its highest win total in the history of Arizona sports betting apps by winning 10 games and playing in the Fiesta Bowl, exceeding their preseason prediction of 6.5 wins.

Contrastingly, Arizona saw a significant decrease in wins during the 2021 season, ending with a record of 1-11 in Fisch’s first season as head coach, falling short of the projected 4.5 wins at the start of the season.

Junior quarterback Jayden de Laura and senior wide receiver Jacob Cowing will be relied upon to lead the Wildcats’ offense in the upcoming season.

In his debut year in Tucson, De Laura demonstrated his impressive passing abilities by amassing 3,685 passing yards and 25 touchdowns, resulting in a QBR of 65.0.

Cowing, who joined the team in his first season after transferring from UTEP, made an impressive 85 receptions for 1,034 yards and scored seven touchdowns.

Adding fourth-year starter Michael Wiley at running back and sophomore wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan to the mix creates an explosive offense that can rival any seen in recent years in Arizona.

The Wildcats will strive to unify as a team, beginning with their first home game against the Lumberjacks on September 2nd.
