Arizona State won the last meeting with Vanderbilt back in 2004, 87-68. I expect another lopsided win today. The Sun Devils have been rolling and are putting up big offensive numbers. Vanderbilt doesn’t have the offense to keep up. The Commodores haven’t been able to score consistently and I don’t expect that to change on the road. The public betting is heavily behind Arizona State and I am with them.
