The Arizona Wildcats and Washington State Cougars face off on Friday in a Pac-12 college football showdown at Martin Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in 2018 it was Washington State that came away with the victory 69-28 victory.
The Arizona Wildcats come into this game with a 1-9 record overall and the only win came two games ago against California. In that game against Cal, the defense gave up only three points and that led to the seven-point victory. In the last game against Utah, Arizona actually jumped out to the 14-7 lead but it all fell apart after that and they lost 38-29. Arizona is averaging 17.3 points while their defense is giving up 29.5 points per game. Under center for Arizona is Will Plummer who has thrown for 1,058 yards, three touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
On the other side of this matchup is the Washington State Cougars who sit with a 5-5 record overall and for the most part they have been competitive this season. They lost to BYU by two points, and they were competitive in the last game against Oregon. Washington State is averaging 25.7 points while their defense is giving up 26 points per game. Under center for Washington State is Jayden de Laura who has thrown for 2,247 yards, 19 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Running back Max Borghi has also had a big season rushing for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.
Arizona is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. Washington State is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall. Arizona is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against Washington State. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings. The Wildcats are 8-22 ATS in their last 30 road games.
Arizona has been more competitive as of late, and they are going to keep it close again. The Wildcats offense is going to find success, and Arizona is going to keep this game close. Back Arizona against the spread. I also believe it’s going to be a high-scoring affair that goes over the total.
