The USC Trojans take on the Arizona State Sun Devils Saturday and Jeff Alexander suggests putting 1 unit on ASU to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at Arizona State –1, but the line has since risen to Arizona State –1.5.

Alexander writes: I look for the Sun Devils to bounce back from a blowout defeat at home, where they have been very good all year, in this one. ASU is 12-4 at home this season and will be anxious to wash the taste of a poor performance against UCLA out of its mouth here, especially against a team which beat them the first time around this season. ASU is 11-3 ATS in home games revenging a loss where they scored less than 60 points over the last 2 seasons. The Sun Devils are 8-1 ATS in home games versus very good shooting teams - making >=48% of their shots over the last 3 seasons and 6-0 ATS in home games versus good defensive teams - shooting pct defense of
