Arizona 2024 Win Total: Trends of 7.5 Win Total Teams
Fact Checked by Washington Erick

Following a triumphant season in Arizona sports betting, the Wildcats are focused on maintaining their success with first-year head coach Brent Brennan as they face new competition in their conference.

After Jedd Fisch left Tucson for Seattle to coach the Washington Huskies, Brennan stepped in to replace him. The Huskies had previously lost their head coach, Kalen DeBoer, to Alabama during the offseason.

The former San José State coach has been tasked with guiding a team that finished the year with seven straight wins, culminating in a 38-24 victory over Oklahoma in the Alamo Bowl, to a final record of 10-3.

Luckily for Brennan, the Wildcats managed to keep star sophomore quarterback Noah Fifita and wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan from transferring. Fifita had a standout season, throwing for 2,869 yards and 25 touchdowns with just six interceptions, while McMillan had an impressive 90 receptions for 1,402 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2023.

Oddsmakers are recognizing the outstanding performance on the football field, as seen by FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona giving Fifita +3000 odds to win the Heisman Trophy in 2024, putting him in a tie for 14th place nationally. Conversely, McMillan is listed at +15000 odds to win the award this upcoming fall.

FanDuel Sportsbook has projected that Arizona will win 7.5 games in the upcoming 2024 college football season, with -110 odds for the over. To assess this projection, we analyzed teams with a 7.5-win total line from the last three seasons using SportsReference.com.

Will Arizona be able to surpass a 7.5 win total in 2024?

Since 2014, over half of the teams projected to win over 7.5 games in the preseason have surpassed that mark, with nearly 18% making it into the year-end AP top-25 poll. Arizona has achieved eight or more wins six times since 2000, providing a potential blueprint for Brennan and his team to follow this upcoming season.

Arizona’s upcoming schedule in the Big 12 includes home games against Texas Tech, Colorado, West Virginia, Houston, and ASU, and away games against Utah, BYU, UCF, and TCU outside of Arizona Stadium.

The Wildcats have added a pre-scheduled “non-conference” game against Big 12 opponent Kansas State in Manhattan on September 13, in addition to matchups against New Mexico on August 31 and NAU on September 7. With these games, Arizona’s complete schedule outside of their new conference is set. Brennan’s goal is to help Arizona exceed their preseason win total in 2024.
