Washington Almost Blew Last Game

Washington in the last game almost blew their lead against Arizona State. At halftime, Washington was up 45-24 and it looked like they were going to cruise to the victory. In the second half though the defense gave 51 points and they ended up winning by only two in overtime. Washington is averaging 81 points while their defense is giving up 76.7 points per game. The offense is ranked 32nd but in this game they can’t have the defnese perform like they did against Arizona State. Keion Brooks Jr is averaging 21.2 points while shooting 49.7 percent from the field. 

Arizona Needs This WIn

Arizona wants the one seed and they can’t lose two games in a row if they want that to happen. Arizona scored 74 points against Washington State and they ended up losing by three points. Caleb Love had a strong game putting up 27 points but he also had a couple of late turnovers that really hurt them. Arizona is averaging 90 points while their defense is giving up 73.1 points per game. In this game, Arizona needs the defense to step up and really put the pressure on Washington. Arizona will face Oregon after this game.

Washington vs Arizona Betting Prediction 

Washington is going to be competitive in this game. Washington might have almost blew the last game, but don’t let that fool you, this is a strong offensive team. Washington is averaging 81 points and they are going to find offensive success here. Washington is still going to give up plenty of points here, but they are going to make enough stops late to keep it close. Back Washington against the spread. This is a game that Washington could win outright.
