The Arizona State Sun Devils have won their last three games and six of their last seven as they appear to be playing their way into March Madness. ASU is 8-4 in the Pac-12 and 5-5 away from home. Jahii Carson is averaging 18.9 points per game to lead the Sun Devils. Jermaine Marshall is averaging 16.2 points, Jordan Bachynski is averaging 12.2 points and 9.0 rebounds, and Shaquielle McKissic is averaging 8.6 points and 5.2 rebounds. Arizona State is averaging 76.8 points and they are shooting 46.3 percent while defensively they are allowing 67.6 points and their opponents are shooting 40.4 percent. Arizona State is coming off of a win against their rivals, Arizona.
Colorado is 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four Wednesday games and 1-5 against the spread following a game that didn’t cover the spread. Arizona State is 5-0 against the spread in their last five Wednesday games and 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games following three or more consecutive home games.
Colorado is favored here and while ASU is red hot, I expect a letdown after the win over Zona.
