Arizona Wildcats | Pac-12 (South)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+450), Win Conference (+1950)
SSA Model Pick: None
Kevin Sumlin inherits a good situation at Arizona as Rich Rod was let go because of off the field issues. With 16 starers back and Khalil Tate at QB the Wildcats could make some noise in the Pac-12 South.

Win Total Analysis
7.5 wins (-120/+100)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Low Confidence)
While Tate emerged as a super-star last season the truth is the guy doesn’t throw a great ball. Coaches have had the entire off-season to plan for him so don’t expect the same level of production from Tate. The Wildcats have a solid team and should win 7 or 8 games. 7 gaes is more likely and with the under at +100 it’s worth taking.
