Arizona Wildcats 2021-22 Season
The Arizona Wildcats' 2020-21 season marked the end of an era, as head coach Sean Miller was fired at the end of the year after 12 seasons running the program. The cats won five regular season conference championships, three conference tournament championships and made the NCAA Tournament seven times during his term. The finale season was a bit marred, however, with Arizona ineligible to compete in March Madness due to NCAA violations against the program.
Coming into the fresh 2021-22 season with new head coach Tommy Lloyd, Arizona was unranked in the preseason polls. But fast forward to the Week 15 rankings, and the Wildcats are the No. 3 team in the country at 22-2. Led by sophomore guard Benedict Mathurin and junior center Christian Koloko, Arizona hasn't lost a home game and is leading the Pac-12 at 12-1. With just a few weeks of regular season games left to play, the Wildcats have a legitimate shot at picking up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament come March and could compete for a Final Four spot and beyond.
Take a look at our college basketball odds to see how the Wildcats fare in the coming weeks.
Betting on the Arizona Wildcats
The Arizona Wildcats have some tough matchups remaining in the season, so be sure to pay close attention to the odds. Here are some of the popular bet types that you can make on the Wildcats if you live in a legal sports betting state -- like Arizona.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using a recent Arizona game against Washington.
- Arizona -1400 moneyline
- Washington +800 moneyline
Arizona is the heavily favored team to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. Washington is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Arizona would have to bet a whopping $1400 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $800 with a wager of $100 on Washington.
Arizona Point Spread
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Arizona Wildcats. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Arizona vs. Washington matchup as an example.
- Arizona -14.5 (-110)
- Washington +14.5 (-110)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Arizona has to win by 15 or more points to beat this spread and Washington either has to win the game outright or lose by 14 points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on Arizona, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked. Someone betting on Texas would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Arizona vs. Washington at 153.5 points.
- Over 153.5 points (-118)
- Under 153.5 points (-110)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 153.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $118 to earn $100. Betting under 153.5 points would mean a bettor would earn $100 for every $110 risked.
Arizona Prop Bets
For those Arizona Wildcats fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to show your support. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
Arizona Future Odds
If you like Arizona's odds to make the Final Four or win the NCAA Tournament, take a look at futures odds . A futures bet is wager for an event happening in the later in the season. Because a futures bet can be really hard to predict, the payouts are much higher than a typical wager. The Wildcats are currently +175 to make the Final Four and +1000 to win the NCAA Tournament.
