TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION MONDAY, MARCH 1ST
#843 ARIZONA (+5) over Oregon at 9 PM EST
Coming in hot off three consecutive straight up wins over USC, Washington State and Washington, Arizona will travel to Eugene on Monday and give Oregon a game. The Ducks enter this contest on a nifty 7-1 SU run (only 4-4 ATS) but they’ll run into a serious challenge here.
Revenge motivation will have the Wildcats focused for this contest. UA holds a dismal 2-9 SU and ATS mark in its last 11 wars against UO and has quietly dropped six straight in this series with the last three coming by margins of two, one and one point respectively. Equally impressive, ‘Zona has been worth a look when priced as an underdog. According to the Team Stryker College Basketball Database, head coach Sean Miller’s kids hold a sensational 105-67 ATS mark when grabbing points including a lucrative 71-41 ATS in this set if they take the court with confidence off a straight up win. In this spot battling a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage greater than .640, the Cats cruise to an awesome 68-31 ATS including a stunning 44-17 ATS provided their opponent scoots in off a pointspread victory.
Oregon has been a real money-maker for us lately and, to be perfectly honest with you, it’s not easy trying to find an angle or trend that works against the Ducks. Thankfully, we were able to come up with one after banging away at our database for about 30 minutes. Here it is: As a single-digit home favorite going into revenge, Oregon sports a soft 29-43 ATS record in its last 72 lined games. In this situation lined up against a foe that arrives off an ATS loss, head coach Dana Altman’s crew falls to a surprising 8-21 ATS including a horrible 5-20 ATS provided they hold a team won/loss percentage of .500 or better.
After Saturday’s less than impressive home win over the Huskies, the Wildcats will head over to Matthew Knight Arena and pull off this shocker. Take Arizona. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
