Arizona Can Win It All

Posted by Jay Sanin on 1/24/2017 5:52:37 AM

Early this season, Arizona suffered a couple of losses that looked worse at the time than they do now. Since then, the Wildcats have been perfect, winning 12 straight games. Their most recent victory was their most impressive, a convincing road win against a top 10 UCLA team. And as their odds to win this year's NCAA Tournament continue to improve, it's hard to deny that Arizona are a strong contender to win it all.

Wildcats Running Wild

Arizona lost games to Butler and Gonzaga in non-conference play this season. Since those losses, Butler went from unranked to ranked, while Gonzaga went from a top 10 team to a top 3 team in the country. Arizona, meanwhile, has ripped off 12 straight victories. In the aforementioned win over UCLA, they took the lead late in the first half, and didn't relinquish it for the rest of the game, where their offense wasn't stopped at all by the Bruins.

While it was Arizona's offense that was the star of the show against UCLA, it is their defense that has carried them to this point in the season. The Wildcats are allowing just 63 points per game to this point in the campaign, good for 20th in the country. That defense was far from flawless against UCLA, but it got stops when they were needed and made it difficult for an explosive UCLA offense to find a rhythm and get buckets to make the game close late.

Arizona College Basketball Futures Betting

After their huge win at UCLA, Arizona sits at +1200 to win the NCAA Tournament. Our odds calculator shows a payout of $1200 for everyone $100 wagered on the Wildcats to win this year's tournament. Of course, in a tough Pac-12, Arizona will have some tough games coming up that will say a lot about their chances to win it all.

One of those tough games is in a couple of weeks, when the Wildcats travel to Oregon to take on the Ducks, in a battle between teams that have yet to lose in conference play this season. If Arizona can take that matchup, there's no reason to think they can't make the Final Four this year.
