Arizona Wildcats Odds, Schedule, Stats & Betting Trends
The Wildcats are hoping for a fresh start in 2021. Former head coach Kevin Sumlin was winless last season and unable to lead the Wildcats to a winning record at any point in his three-season tenure.
Heading into 2021 with new coach Jedd Fisch, the Wildcats are expected to be better, but not by much, with a preseason win total of just 2.5 games. See all of the Wildcats' odds above, in addition to their full schedule, ATS record, team and player stats, and more.
How to bet on the Arizona Wildcats
Arizona Wildcats Point Spreads
As you might imagine, betting on the Wildcats wasn’t a great move last year. They were tied for worst in the nation against the spread (ATS), covering only once all season. Spread bets are immensely popular in the U.S. and are a wager on the margin of victory in a game. That means teams can cover the spread even when they lose.
Here’s an example of a Wildcats spread:
- Arizona +8.5 (-110)
- Arizona State -8.5 (-110)
Arizona is the underdog here, expected to lose by 8.5 points. This means that the Wildcats can “cover” the spread if they lose by eight or fewer points, or if they win the game. The favored team, Arizona State, needs to win by at least nine for it to be a win against the spread.
Arizona Wildcats Over/Unders
If you want to bet on a Wildcats game but can’t bring yourself to bet for or against them, one option is betting on over/unders.
Over/unders, sometimes called totals, are bets on the amount of scoring in a game. You can bet on the game as a whole or on either team individually, but either way the winner doesn’t matter, just the amount of points scored.
For example, if the total of an Arizona vs. Arizona State game is set at 59 points, a 42-21 win for State means over bettors win. Under bets need the combined total from both teams to come in at 58 or fewer to cash, while exactly 59 points scored would be a tie and all bettors get their stake back.
Arizona Wildcats Moneylines
Moneylines are just bets on the winner of a game, which means betting against the Wildcats was the right move last season. However, bets on the underdog pay out more than bets on the favorite if the underdog is able to win, so it’s possible to make money betting on the Wildcats in 2021 even without a winning record.
Say the Wildcats are playing USC and oddsmakers have them as +460 underdogs. This means that a $100 bet would pay off to the tune of $460 in profit, so you would only need a couple of those a year. However, betting on a -460 favorite means you would have to risk $460 to receive $100 in profit.
Arizona Wildcats Props aka Wildcats Prop Bets
Quarterback Will Plummer, one of Arizona's recent top recruits, is expected to start for the Wildcats this season. If you wanted to bet on Plummer to throw for over a set number of yards, you could: That’s called a prop bet.
Prop (or proposition) bets are wagers on a single player's performance during a game. Besides passing yards, you could bet over or under on Plummer's touchdowns, completions, or interceptions, as well as place wagers on other skill position players.
Arizona Wildcats Futures aka Wildcats Futures Odds
The bar is set pretty low for Wildcats futures — bets on their performance for the entire season — in 2021. They have a meager 2.5-game preseason win total that you can bet over or under on, and their odds to win the Pac-12 are around 66/1 depending on the sportsbook. Other Wildcats futures include odds on various players' performance, like odds for a player to lead the conference in passing, over/unders on receiving yard and more.
