The over/under total for the contest has been set at 162.5 points. Today’s game takes place from Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe, Arizona and will air live on the Pac-12 Network.
Arizona State is off to an 11-0 start following a 95-61 win over Longwood a few days ago. The Sun Devils are 9-2 against the spread, failing to cover in the win over Longwood, which snapped a 9-game covers streak. ASU is averaging 90.6 points per game on offense this season while allowing 72.3 per game on defense. Tra Holder is leading Arizona State with 21.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5 assists per game.

These two have no recent meetings to consider for today’s game. Arizona State has looked great and even their failed cover game in a lopsided win over more than 20 points. Today is faces a Pacific team that is 3-10-1 against the spread in its last 14 against Pac-12 opponents and 4-10-1 ATS in its last 15 non-conference games. The public betting is almost unanimous for Arizona State and I think the Sun Devils will roll.
