Randy’s Free Pick

The Arizona Wildcats are the better team, and they have the offensive horses to blow the doors off here, but they’ve also had issues on the road at times and Washington isn’t a pushover. The Washington Huskies get after it defensively, and they play their best ball at home, where they win by an average of 3.6 points and hold teams to 40.2 percent shooting. Give me the points.
