New, comment

Arizona enters the Pac-12 Tournament as the betting favorite to win despite Oregon's superior regular season record.

The Oregon Ducks landed the top seed in the Pac-12 Tournament with a 25-6 straight up and 16-11-1 against the spread record including a 14-4 SU record in conference play. The Ducks will try to take advantage of their seeding with a win in the conference tournament this weekend in Las Vegas.

Oregon is going off at +350 on the odds to win the Pac-12 Tournament at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Over their final 13 games of the regular season, the Ducks finished strong with an 11-2 SU and 9-4 ATS record, including a road win over Arizona as a 7.5-point underdog in late January.

The Ducks take on the winner of Wednesday's No. 8 Stanford vs. No. 9 Washington (+2500 to win the Pac-12 Tournament) game on Thursday.

The No. 4 Arizona Wildcats enter the conference tournament as the favorite to win, going off at +175 to take home the Pac-12 title. Arizona is widely considered to be the most talented team in the Pac-12, but the Wildcats have struggled with consistency this season, especially on the road where they are 3-5 SU and ATS over their last eight per the OddsShark College Basketball Database.

The Wildcats would love to pick up some wins away from home heading into the NCAA Tournament here in the Pac-12 Tournament, starting on Thursday against the winner of Wednesday's No. 5 Colorado (+1800) vs. No. 12 Washington State game.

The No. 2 Utah Utes (+360) have won seven straight with a 5-2 ATS record over that stretch and are 12-2 SU and 9-5 ATS over their last 14 games including wins over California and Arizona.

Also included in Utah's last seven wins are road victories over USC (+1400) and UCLA; the two teams playing on Wednesday for a chance to advance to take on the Utes on Thursday.

Lastly, the No. 3 California Bears (+400) are also on a surge with an 8-1 SU and ATS record over their last nine games. They await the winner of Wednesday's No. 6 Oregon State vs. No. 11 Arizona State matchup.

Bettors anticipating a major shakeup in the Pac-12 Tournament can bet on Stanford, Washington State, UCLA, Oregon State and Arizona State as the "field" to win the tournament at +1400.
