Arizona State vs. Oregon Pick
Will No. 13 Oregon cruise to another home win when the Ducks host Arizona State at 11PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Oregon is favored heavily at home, as the Ducks are getting odds of -17 points against Arizona State. The over/under total for the game is listed at 156 points. Oregon has won four straight over ASU and the Ducks have covered the spread in the last two meetings.
Oregon is coming off a surprising 74-65 loss at Colorado for its first loss in Pac-12 play. The Ducks are now 19-3 overall and 8-1 in the Pac-12. The loss also snapped an eight-game cover streak. Oregon is now 12-9 against the spread on the season. The Ducks are averaging 78.3 points per game on offense while the defense is giving up 63.9. At home, Oregon puts up 83.1 on offense while allowing just 62.1 on defense. Dillon Brooks has been leading the team with 13.4 points per game while Chris Boucher has added 12.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per contest.
Arizona State has lost five of its last six games to drop to 10-12 on the season and 3-6 in the Pac-12. The Sun Devils are 8-11-2 against the spread this season and only 3-7-1 ATS on the road. ASU averages 81.7 points per game on offense, but the defense is giving up 83.7 per game. Torian Graham is leading the team with 18.7 points per game while Obinna Oleka averages a double-double of 13.1 points and 10.6 rebounds per game.
The Ducks are coming off a loss, so I would expect a big game at home, but 17 points is a lot to cover as well. ASU has been losing, but not by tremendous margins. Five of their last six losses have been by 16 points or less. I think ASU will have enough offense to be able to cover the spread on the road today.
