Though Arizona State suffered a 22-point loss to UCLA already, I think the Sun Devils can cover tonight. ASU actually has the offensive capability to match UCLA. The Sun Devils only average 5 less per game at home than UCLA does on the road. UCLA has been rolling, winning five straight, but that just means the Bruins should be overlooking the Sun Devils.
