The Stanford Cardinal and Arizona Wildcats meet Sunday in college basketball action at the McKale Center.

The Stanford Cardinal look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Stanford Cardinal are averaging 73.5 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 73.2 points on 43.9 percent shooting. KZ Okpala is averaging 17.5 points and 5.8 rebounds while Daejon Davis is averaging 12.3 points and 4.4 assists. Oscar da Silva is dishing 1.9 assists and Cormac Ryan is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Stanford Cardinal are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 68.3 percent from the free throw line. The Stanford Cardinal are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game. The Stanford Cardinal have split their last six road games.

The Arizona Wildcats could use a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Arizona Wildcats are averaging 72.2 points on 42.8 percent shooting and allowing 68.7 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Brandon Randolph is averaging 13.2 points and 3.5 rebounds while Brandon Williams is averaging 12 points and 3.7 assists. Chase Jeter is the third double-digit scorer and Justin Coleman is grabbing 2.3 rebounds. The Arizona Wildcats are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 72.2 percent from the free throw line. The Arizona Wildcats are allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.5 rebounds per game. The Arizona Wildcats have split their last six home games.

The Cardinal are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 6-20 ATS in their last 26 Sunday games. The Wildcats are 1-3-2 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 vs. Pacific-12 and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Cardinal are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Wildcats last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Cardinal last 5 road games.

The Stanford Cardinal have made us money in roles like this season despite being just 5-8 ATS as an underdog and 6-8-1 ATS on the road. There's no doubt that Stanford is playing better basketball than Arizona at the moment, but the Wildcats are coming off a beatdown against Cal and the McKale Center is still one of the tougher venues to produce a victory. Arizona has also won each of the last 10 games against Stanford, and that includes a win already this season despite the Cardinal shooting 54 percent from the field. You just feel that Arizona is going to turn things around at some point, and it might as well come against a team they've beaten up on over the years.

Pick:
Arizona -4.5
