Arizona is 1-4 against the spread following a win, 5-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 1-4 against the spread following a win. Santa Clara is 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight neutral site games, 0-4 against the spread following a loss, and 0-5 against the spread in their last five games.
This one is a mismatch and while the spread reflects that I still see an Arizona cover.
