Free NCAA Basketball Pick
This game features two high scoring offenses. Oregon has won the last three head to head meetings against Arizona. Both teams shoot the three ball really well. However, Oregon has a more prolific three-point shooting team. I believe Oregon will be looking to prove that they are the best team in the PAC 12 conference. With both offenses being really good I will take the OVER for this game. I like Oregon to win this game because their offense is really good and I think they will be able to stop Arizona just enough times on the defensive side of the ball. Oregon 85. Arizona 78.
