Coming in as the 3-point favorites on the road, I like Arizona to cover the spread. Arizona’s offense is coming off a good performance vs. Arizona State and should carry that momentum into this week’s matchup vs. Oklahoma.

On the over/under, I have the best bet being to take the over at 63. This looks like a slam dunk bet for me, as my gut tells me the over will hit as well as our model projecting a combined 64 points.
