Colorado vs. Arizona State Pick
Can No. 21 Arizona State get on track in the Pac-12 when the Sun Devils host Colorado tonight at 8PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Arizona State is favored at home in this game, as the Sun Devils are getting odds of -10 points against Colorado. The over/under total for the game is listed at 153.5 points.
Colorado has lost its last two coming into tonight, falling at home to Washington and at Arizona. The Buffaloes are 12-9 overall, 4-5 in the Pac-12 and 10-10-1 against the spread. Colorado averages 73.9 points per game on offense this year while allowing 73.5 per contest. McKinley Wright IV is leading Colorado with 14.9 points and 5.3 assists per contest while George King is adding 14.6 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
Arizona State is coming off an 80-77 OT loss at home to Utah. The Sun Devils have started Pac-12 play 3-5 and are now 15-5 overall and 10-8-2 against the spread. ASU is averaging 86.2 points per game on offense this season while allowing 75 per game. Tra Holder is leading ASU with 19.2 points and 5 rebounds per game while Shannon Evans II is adding 16.6 points and 4.3 assists per contest.
The home team has won and covered in seven straight meetings in this series, including a 90-81 OT win for Colorado at home back on Jan. 4. While the home team has been king in this series, ASU has been a mess in conference play. The Sun Devils are 0-6-2 ATS in their eight Pac-12 games and all of their wins have been by single digits. I can’t feel good about giving up 10 points with ASU right now, especially to a team the Sun Devils have already lost to. The public betting is heavily backing Colorado tonight as well.
