Oregon vs Arizona Betting Previews

Here are the Oregon vs Arizona Betting previews for both teams.

Next Team Up

At the moment, Bracketology only sees two teams from the Pac-12 making it into the NCAA Tournament. These are Arizona and Washington State. Northwest has a solid 19-9 record and is in third place in the conference standings.

They still have a chance to go dancing at the end of the season. Getting a win away at #6 Arizona would help those hopes a lot. The Ducks have won three of their last four games. Their only loss was at Cal on the road. Forward Kwame Evans Jr. led them to a win over Oregon State with 22 points and nine rebounds in their last game.

The best player for the Ducks is N’Faly Dante, a 6’11”, 210-pound senior inside who leads the team in both points scored and rebounds grabbed. After missing most of the first few games of the season because of an illness, he has played in 13 straight games and scored 10 or more points in 11 of them.

Jermaine Cousinard, a 6’4 senior, has been the most reliable player all season. He averages 14.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists. Plus, he makes more threes than anyone else on the team (51 this season). Jackson Shelstad has been a good rookie guard for the Ducks. He is only 6’0″, but he scores 12.2 points per game.

KenPom ranks Oregon as the 61st best team in the country. They are 62nd in how well they attack and 72nd in how well they defend. Their speed is the 173rd fastest in college basketball. Bracketology doesn’t think Oregon will get an at-large bid right now, but since they are third in the Pac-12, their bubble hasn’t burst yet.


Out: C Nate Bittle (10.0 PPG), G Jessee Zarzuela (10.0 PPG). Each of these players only played five total games, and neither played a single game in February, so it will not impact recent rotations.

Fighting for a One Seed

As Oregon tries to get into the NCAA Tournament, Arizona tries to get one of the four top places. At the moment, Purdue, UConn, Houston, and Arizona are the top teams in bracketology. However, Tennessee and North Carolina are also in the running.

Phoenix has won eight of its last nine games. Their only loss was to Washington State, which is the only other ranked team in the league. In their last game, a win over Arizona State, guard Kylan Boswell led the way with 17 points.

Caleb Love scores the most points for the Wildcats (19.3 PPG), more than any other player in the conference (5.1 RPG, 3.4 APG). Seven times in a row, he has scored 15 points or more. The last time they played, he got 36 points against Oregon. Plus, Love makes the most threes of anyone on the team (77). Their best center, Oumar Ballo, is 7 feet tall and 260 pounds.

He is a beast inside and averages 13.2 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. In his last eight games, he has had a double-double every time. As a senior, Pelle Larson scores 13.0 points per game, grabs 4.3 rebounds, and assists 3.6 times. He plays on the wing and is 6’6″. Keshad Johnson is a 6’7″ forward who averages 11.6 points per game, and Kylan Boswell is a 6’2″ junior guard who adds 10.1 points per game and 3.6 assists per game.

Overall, KenPom ranks Arizona as the fourth best team. They are seventh in how well they attack and eleventh in how well they defend. They play 14th in the country in terms of pace of play, which is a lot faster than the Ducks. The latest Bracketology prediction is that Arizona will be the top seed in the West Region.

Best Bet for this Game

Both teams are very motivated. The Ducks want to make it to the Big Dance, and Arizona is sick of hearing people say they don’t deserve to be the number one seed. While Oregon has lost on the road to Colorado, Utah, UCLA, and Cal, all of those teams were not as good as the Wildcats.

Oregon only paid for one of those four loses as well. Arizona, on the other hand, is playing at home against Washington State. They have only lost one league game all season there. It’s not possible for Oregon’s best player, N’Faly Dante, to use his size and strength to his advantage.

The main difference between Dante and Oumar Ballo is that Dante is fifty pounds lighter and an inch shorter. After getting a double-double in seven of the last eight games, Ballo has been a force inside.

The mismatch is worse on the outside. Caleb Love scored 36 points against the Ducks in their last game, and Oregon doesn’t have a player on the outside who can stop Love. Oregon wants to make a statement with this win, but Arizona is better at every level of the game and is at home.
