The Arizona Wildcats and Stanford Cardinal meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Maples Pavilion.

The Arizona Wildcats look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The Arizona Wildcats are averaging 74 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 65.9 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Brandon Randolph is averaging 16.5 points and 3.1 rebounds while Chase Jeter is averaging 13 points and 7.5 rebounds. Brandon Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Justin Coleman is dishing 3.1 assists. The Arizona Wildcats are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 73.8 percent from the free throw line. The Arizona Wildcats are allowing 30.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.8 rebounds per game. The Arizona Wildcats have split their two road games this season.

The Stanford Cardinal look for a statement win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Stanford Cardinal are averaging 72.5 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 73.7 points on 43.9 percent shooting. KZ Okpala is averaging 16.6 points and 6.5 rebounds while Daejon Davis is averaging 11.9 points and 4.2 assists. Cormac Ryan is the third double-digit scorer and Oscar da Silva is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Stanford Cardinal are shooting 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 66.9 percent from the free throw line. The Stanford Cardinal are allowing 29.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.1 rebounds per game. The Stanford Cardinal have won all five home games this season.

The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Pacific-12 and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The Cardinal are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wildcats are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Stanford. The under is 17-8-1 in Wildcats last 26 overall. The over is 4-1 in Cardinal last 5 overall.

The Stanford Cardinal have yet to lose a home game this season and are outscoring teams by 12.4 points while shooting 52.2 percent from the field at home. There's reason to consider the Cardinal and the free bucket. The problem is the Arizona Wildcats are starting to return to their defensive roots during this four-game winning streak and simply have the better athletes than Stanford. There's a reason why Arizona has won 10 straight against Stanford and most of those games weren't close. If I'm going to consider Stanford, I need more than three points. Give me Arizona on the road.

Pick:
Arizona Wildcats -3
