Washington State is 5-1-1 against the spread following a win, 9-4-1 against the spread in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record, and 5-0 against the spread at home against a team with a winning road record. Arizona is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games, 4-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 5-2 against the spread following a win by 20 or more points. The favorite has covered the point spread in the last six meetings of these two.
The total is at 145.5 but that looks a shade high to me so it's jus a lean to the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the app.
