The Arizona Wildcats have dropped three straight games, though as far as the oddsmakers were concerned that was supposed to happen since they were the underdog each time.

In fact, Arizona has not been favored in its last four games, including the win at Colorado at the start of October.

The Wildcats (4-4, 2-3 Pac-12) are back among the favorites for this week, sitting as a 7-point favorite for their home game Saturday at 1:30 p.m. MT against the Oregon State Beavers according to VegasInsider.com.

It will be Homecoming for Arizona, with the team set to wear special throwbacks uniforms honoring the Desert Swarm era of the 1990s. It will also serve as the debut of Chuck Cecil as defensive coordinator after coach Kevin Sumlin promoted him from an analyst position while firing DC Marcel Yates and linebackers coach John Rushing on Sunday.

Arizona is 2-5-1 against the spread this season, with a 1-2-1 mark ATS at home. Oregon State (3-4, 2-2) is 5-2 ATS including outright wins at UCLA and Cal in its last two road games.
