College Basketball Betting: Pac-12 Tournament: OREGON DUCKS vs. ARIZONA WILDCATS (3/14)


ARIZONA vs, OREGON (@ Las Vegas)
(GetThatBet Line: Arizona -12.5, Total 147) — Unexpected things often happen in conference tournaments, and that would seem to be the case for Oregon, which has won eleven of its last 12 games but has failed miserably twice against Arizona this season – dropping two games by a total of 52 points, Yes, that was before the Ducks got rolling, but the fact is that Arizona has done a great job of shutting down Oregon’s big scoring threat, Houston transfer Joseph Young, who sank the big triple at the end to beat Utah last night. Young has shot just 33% in four career meetings against Sean Miller’s defensive scheme, and Arizona has also been utterly dominant on the defensive boards, as it usually is, allowing the Ducks a total of just nine second chances combined in the two encounters. Th ever fact that Young was named Pac-12 player of the year over some very deserving candidates on the Arizona side should only add fuel to the fire, as should the fact that Duke and Virginia lost in the ACC tournament, which paves the way for UA to assume a #1 seed in the Big Dance if they win here.
