Arizona State is coming off an 80-66 win over Colorado at home this past weekend, but the Sun Devils are just 4-5 in Pac-12 play. ASU is 16-5 overall and 11-8-2 against the spread. The Sun Devils are averaging 85.9 points per game this season while allowing 74.6 per contest.

Washington is coming off an 80-62 win over Washington State at home this weekend for its second straight victory. The Huskies are now 15-6 overall, 5-3 in the Pac-12 and 9-9-1 against the spread. Washington is averaging 76.3 points per game this season while allowing 72.8 per contest. Jaylen Nowell is leading Washington with 16.7 points per game while Noah Dickerson is adding 14.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per contest.
Arizona State has won and covered in two straight meetings with Washington, but the two have yet to meet this season. The Sun Devils looked liked world beaters before entering the Pac-12 and have struggled since. They are just 1-6-2 ATS in the Pac-12. That one cover was their last game at home against Colorado. While that could lead to something good going forward, I still can’t trust ASU as a road favorite when they have yet to cover on the road in conference play. Washington is 4-1-1 ATS in its last six games. The public betting is backing is heavily with Washington and I will take the Huskies at home as well.
