Arizona State vs. Oregon State Prediction
Arizona State beat Oregon State in the only matchup between the two teams this season but can the Sun Devils do it again when the two teams meet tonight in the Pac-12 tournament?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Beavers are 3-point favorites over the Sun Devils while the over/under is sitting at 142 points.
Even though Arizona State beat Oregon State 86-68, the Sun Devils shot a ridiculous 59.3 percent in that contest. That's the only time this season that ASU shot 50-plus percent against a fellow Pac-12 opponent. Oregon State led for just 22 second in that game, but ASU isn't going to accomplish that same feat again tonight.
Similarly, guard Gary Payton won't be held to only two points again as he was in the first game between these two teams. Even with forward Tres Tinkle (who is the Beavers' second-leading scorer) out with a foot injury, no 11 seed has won a game since the Pac-12 conference expanded to 12 teams.
