The Stanford Cardinal have won their last two games including a first round Pac-12 Tournament win over Washington State. Stanford is 11-8 in the Pac-12 and 2-2 in neutral site games. Chasson Randle leads the Cardinal averaging 18.9 points per game. Anthony Brown is averaging 13.1 points and 5.0 rebounds, Dwight Powell is averaging 14.2 points and 7.0 rebounds, and Josh Huestis is averaging 11.5 points and 8.5 rebounds. Stanford is averaging 73.8 points and they are shooting 46.4 percent while defensively they are allowing 68.5 points and their opponents are shooting 41.8 percent. Stanford looks to be a bubble team for the NCAA Tournament.
Arizona State is 1-5 against the spread following a loss and 4-13 in their last 17 neutral site games. Stanford is 0-4-1 against the spread in their last five games , 0-3-2 against the spread in their last five neutral site games, and 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The favorite has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two.
My free pick here is on the total and I like under 141. 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.
