Wildcats Basketball Teams Among Arizona Betting Apps NCAA Title Favorites

The University of Arizona’s men’s and women’s basketball teams have had a season to remember.

Both the men’s and women’s Wildcats teams are leading contenders in the Arizona betting apps for NCAA basketball championships, with the men’s team holding a strong 14-1 record and the women’s team starting off at 12-2.

After nearly two decades as an assistant coach at Gonzaga, Tommy Lloyd has taken the reins as the first-year head coach of the men’s team in Tucson since his arrival last spring.

Adia Barnes, a former standout guard at Arizona, led the women’s team to their first appearance in the NCAA Championship game last year. Despite a close game, they narrowly lost 54-53 to Stanford.

With less than 10 weeks remaining until the start of the 2022 NCAA basketball tournaments, it’s time to assess the Wildcats’ position in college basketball betting.

Wildcats aim to capture first championship since 1997

It’s hard to imagine a better start to the Lloyd era in Tucson.

The Wildcats are currently ranked third in the Associated Press poll, marking the program’s first top-5 ranking since Deandre Ayton and his teammates competed during the 2017-18 regular season.

By successfully executing his fast-paced offensive approach influenced by European tactics, Lloyd has propelled the Wildcats to become the fifth highest-scoring team in the nation with an average of 88.5 points per game, as well as the second highest in assists per game with 21.9.

The Wildcats’ defense has shown significant improvement, now holding opponents to an average of 64.4 points per game. This marks a clear departure from the defensive tactics utilized under the previous coach, Sean Miller, who was released last spring.

As a result of Lloyd’s comprehensive overhaul in Tucson, the Wildcats have emerged as leading contenders for the 2022 NCAA title. Their odds vary from +1100 at TwinSpires Arizona and Unibet Arizona, to +1800 at DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona.

The Wildcats’ odds of winning are +1300 on Fubo Sportsbook, +1400 on SuperBook Arizona, and +1500 at Caesars Sportsbook Arizona, placing them in the middle of the range of odds.

The Wildcats are favored to make their first Final Four appearance since 2001 with odds of +250 on TwinSpires Sportsbook and Unibet Arizona. They are also listed at +320 on FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, +325 on SuperBook Arizona, and +380 on DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona.

The Wildcats are currently favored to win the Pac-12 Conference championship at Caesars Sportsbook Arizona (-110), DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona (+105), and Fubo Sportsbook Arizona (+120).

Arizona’s Women’s Program is considered one of the favorites for the NCAA title.

Barnes and the Wildcats women’s team have excelled in the 2021-22 regular season, going head-to-head with the nation’s top teams in pursuit of a championship.

The Wildcats’ perfect 10-0 record in non-conference games is due to their wins against top-ranked teams like Louisville, DePaul, Rutgers, and Vanderbilt.

The Wildcats have had a varied beginning to their Pac-12 season, winning against Washington State (60-52) and Oregon State (55-53) but losing on the road to USC (76-67) and Oregon (68-66 in overtime).

Even though the Wildcats have been facing challenges lately, Arizona sportsbooks are still hopeful about their potential to win the title. Caesars Sportsbook Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona are both offering the team +8800 odds of winning the 2022 championship.

The Wildcats have shocked the nation by beating Texas A&M, Indiana, and UConn in a row to make it to their first-ever championship game. As a result, they are now ranked eighth in the nation for championship odds on two sites.
