The Arizona Wildcats and the Oregon Ducks will match up on the college basketball court Saturday.

Arizona steps in here at 17-12 this season. The Wildcats have pulled off victories in each of their last three games, taking out California, Stanford and Oregon State in that stretch.

In the win over the Beavers, Arizona guard Brandon Randolph led the team on 15 points with three boards. Justin Coleman, Ira Lee and Brandon Williams each scored 10 points for the Wildcats in that one as well.

Over on the Oregon side, they’re 16-12 this year so far. After a three-game losing streak versus Oregon State, USC and UCLA, the Ducks got back in the win column Thursday with a 79-51 win over Arizona State.

In the win over the Sun Devils, Oregon’s top scorer was Louis King with 19 points, and Payton Pritchard added 18 points. Also in double-figures for the Ducks in that victory was Ehab Amin with 11 points and five boards.

The Wildcats are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 overall and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 versus the Pac-12. Arizona is 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 Saturday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

Meanwhile, the Ducks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win and 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall. Oregon is 0-5 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven versus the Pac-12.

Arizona had some tense moments early on in the Oregon State game, but after a good second half (42-37) they were able to put the Beavers away 74-72.

Aside from that, Arizona’s been pretty inconsistent scoring over the latter part of the season, but they do have at least 70 in each of their last three. Oregon’s kind of all over the place on the scoreboard as well, but with the home edge here I think the Ducks can bang out a win. There’s just enough room for the Wildcats to get in and cover however.

Pick:
Arizona Wildcats +4.5
