Dayton Preview

The Dayton Flyers are 25-7 (14-4) this year after they defeated Nevada by a score of 63-60 in their last game, just after a defeat to Duquesne. Dayton trailed 34-25 at halftime and they were down 17 points with about seven minutes left, but they finished the game on a 24-4 run to get the win. The Flyers shot 45.7% from the field and made 8 three pointers in the game. Dayton has won three of their last four games, but they have played inconsistently over the last few weeks. The Flyers are scoring 74.4 points per game with 33.6 rebounds per game and 14.8 assists per game, while allowing 66.1 points against per game this year. DaRon Holmes II is averaging 20.3 points per game, 8.4 rebounds per game, and 2.6 assists per game. Dayton is shooting 47.7% from the field, 73.4% on free throws, and 40.2% on three pointers this season.

Arizona Preview

The Arizona Wildcats are 26-8 (15-5) this season after they defeated Long Beach State by a score of 85-65 in their last game, but before that game, they lost to Oregon. Arizona led 41-35 at halftime and they scored 44 points in the second half for the win. The Wildcats shot 41.7% from the field and made 13 three pointers in the game. Arizona has won six of their last eight games and they finished first in the PAC-12 regular season standings. The Wildcats are scoring 87.9 points per game with 42.8 rebounds per game and 18.6 assists per game, while giving up 72 points against per game this season. Caleb Love is averaging 18.1 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game, and 3.4 assists per game. Arizona is shooting 48.9% from the field, 71.9% on free throws, and 37.1% on three pointers this year. 

Dayton vs Arizona Betting Prediction

Arizona had some trouble with Long Beach State in the first half of their first game, but they were able to pull away in the second half and won by 20 points. The Wildcats have picked up two losses in their last four games, but I don’t think they will have any issues here. Dayton was getting ran out of the gym against Nevada on Thursday, but they went on an improbable run over the last seven minutes and picked up the win. The Flyers were very impressive in their comeback win, but Arizona is much better than Nevada. I expect the Wildcats to dominate inside and their rebounding advantage is going to be huge. Take Arizona to win by double digits.

David’s Pick Arizona -9.5
