Washington (-1, 134) at Arizona – 9:00 PM EST – ESPN2

In spite of owning a 9-0 conference record and an 11-game winning streak, Washington (18-4 SU, 13-8-1 ATS) is on the outside looking in as far as the Top 25 polls go. The unranked Huskies have won and covered all nine Pac-12 games this season, including pulling off a sweep of the Los Angeles squads. Washington cruised past USC last Wednesday, 75-62, while knocking off UCLA last Saturday, 69-55 as the Huskies have cashed the UNDER in four of the past five games.

The Huskies head to the desert this week for a pair of contests, starting with a trip to Tucson to face Arizona (14-8 SU, 10-11-1 ATS). The Wildcats put together an impressive 4-0 start in conference play, but UA has gone backwards of late by losing four of the past five games, including three straight contests on the road. The most recent setback came in last Thursday’s 95-88 overtime loss at Arizona State as 5 -point underdogs, marking the second straight season that Arizona has lost three consecutive games.

Washington and Arizona met only once last season as the Huskies edged the Wildcats in Seattle, 78-75 as seven-point underdogs. The Wildcats have captured each of the past four meetings with UW in Tucson, as the Huskies were listed as a double-digit underdog in each of those contests. Since getting blown out at Auburn in early November, Washington has covered in each of its past five true road games, including a perfect 4-0 mark in the Pac-12.
