The Oregon Ducks and Arizona Wildcats meet Thursday in college basketball action at the McKale Center.

The Oregon Ducks look for a big road win after splitting their last six games. The Oregon Ducks are averaging 73.4 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 64.8 points on 39.5 percent shooting. Payton Pritchard is averaging 11.7 points and 3.6 rebounds while Paul White is averaging 10.4 points and 1.5 assists. Victor Bailey Jr. is dishing one assist and Louis King is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Oregon Ducks are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74 percent from the free throw line. The Oregon Ducks are allowing 29.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game. The Oregon Ducks have lost two of their last three road games.

The Arizona Wildcats look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Arizona Wildcats are averaging 74.8 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 66.1 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Brandon Randolph is averaging 16.3 points and 3.5 rebounds while Chase Jeter is averaging 13.4 points and 7.4 rebounds. Brandon Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Justin Coleman is grabbing 1.9 rebounds. The Arizona Wildcats are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75.4 percent from the free throw line. The Arizona Wildcats are allowing 30.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.7 rebounds per game. The Arizona Wildcats have won nine of their last 10 home games.

The Ducks are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games, 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Pacific-12. The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Pacific-12. The Ducks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Arizona and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Wildcats last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Ducks last 4 road games.

The Oregon Ducks have had some recent success against the Arizona Wildcats, but they're not nearly the same team as past years, especially without Bol Bol. Oregon has serious struggles offensively without its best player and is shooting just 42.1 percent from the field in its last five games. The Arizona Wildcats are playing their best ball of the season right now, and they're winning by an average of 15 points at home this season while shooting 46.7 percent from the field and allowing 39.7 percent shooting. With the Oregon Ducks struggles scoring lately, this is just a rough game on the road. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Arizona Wildcats on the road.

Pick:
Arizona -4.5
