Bet on Arizona +9.5 Because…

The trends favor the Arizona Wildcats in this matchup. Arizona is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these 2 teams. The Wildcats are also 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Utah. The road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these 2. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The most important trends point to the Wildcats keeping this one closer than 9.5 points.

Bet on Utah -9.5 Because…

Utah’s offense should do whatever it wants against Arizona’s defense. The Wildcats’ defense allows 458.6 yards per game on average. Arizona gives up an average of 29.4 points per game. It doesn’t even matter if you prefer to rush the football or throw the football, you will have success moving the ball and scoring against one of the worst defenses in the nation.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

This might be the one season where trends in this game don’t mean anything. Arizona is getting worse the longer Rich Rodriguez is their coach. The team started out last season undefeated only to have UCLA embarrass them in Tucson.

Arizona is just a bad football team. Sure, the offense has the ability to score points. But it doesn’t matter. If you can’t stop the other team from scoring more points than you score, you’ll lose.

The Wildcats are already looking to next season when 18 defensive recruits join the team. Utah needs to make a statement win in order to get back into the Pac-12 race. I like Utah to cover.

My final score prediction is Utah 35, Arizona 24.
