Fresh off their first shutout loss in nine years, the Arizona Wildcats will look to put the Colorado result in the rearview mirror when they host Washington Friday at 7:30 p.m. MST on ESPN2. Unsurprisingly, oddsmakers don’t like Arizona’s chances.
The UA (0-6, 0-3 Pac-12) has opened as a 15-point home underdog against the Huskies, according to Circa Sports, marking the second straight time the Wildcats haven’t been favored at Arizona Stadium. Arizona is a slightly smaller home underdog than they were a few weeks ago against UCLA, when oddsmakers had them +16 (Arizona failed to cover, losing 34-16).
The Wildcats are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 Pac-12 games. They did cover as 29.5-point underdogs at Oregon last month.
On the other side, Washington (2-4, 1-2) has failed to cover the spread in any of its Pac-12 games. The Huskies were 1.5-point favorites at home against UCLA this past weekend and fell 24-17.
The over/under for the matchup has opened at 46.5 points.
