The Utah Utes and Washington Huskies meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Alaska Airlines Arena.

The Utah Utes could use a win after splitting their last six games. The Utah Utes are averaging 76.6 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Sedrick Barefield is averaging 16.2 points and four assists while Timmy Allen is averaging 11.8 points and 5.2 rebounds. Donnie Tillman is the third double-digit scorer and Parker Van Dyke is dishing 1.6 assists. The Utah Utes are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 70.2 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Utes are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.2 rebounds per game. The Utah Utes have won their last four road games.

The Washington Huskies look for another victory after winning 13 of their last 14 games. The Washington Huskies are averaging 71.7 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 64.7 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Jaylen Nowell is averaging 16.5 points and 3.3 assists while Noah Dickerson is averaging 13 points and 6.8 rebounds. David Crisp is the third double-digit scorer and Matisse Thybulle is dishing 2.2 assists. The Washington Huskies are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 70.7 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Huskies are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.2 rebounds per game. The Washington Huskies haven’t lost a home game since March 3 of last year.

The Utes are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 vs. Pacific-12, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Huskies are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 10-2 ATS in their last 12 vs. Pacific-12 and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Utes are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Washington and 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 47-22 in Huskies last 69 overall. The over is 6-1 in Utes last 7 overall.

Washington beat Utah last month on the road by 16 points, a game in which they held the Utes to just 53 points on 33.3 percent shooting. The Utah Utes have won their last four road games, but they're still allowing 48.2 percent shooting in those games, which isn't good when going up against an explosive Washington squad. The Washington Huskies are winning home games by an average of 13.4 points and are 7-4-1 ATS at home this season overall. This up and down style of play for the Utah Utes where they trade baskets until the very end won't fly against Washington. I'll take the Huskies in a comfortable home victory.

Washington -9
