The Kennesaw State Owls and Arizona State Sun Devils meet Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Arena.
The Kennesaw State Owls are still looking for their first win after losing to Alabama and LSU. The Kennesaw State Owls are averaging 66.5 points on 36.1 percent shooting and allowing 84 points on 50.8 percent shooting. Yonel Brown is averaging 22.5 points and five rebounds while Kendrick Ray is averaging 21 points and two assists. Aubrey Williams is grabbing 11.5 rebounds and Nigel Pruitt is dishing one assist. The Kennesaw State Owls need to find other scorers, as Brown and Ray are doing all of the heavy lifting early this season.

The Arizona State Sun Devils look to rebound after a rocky 1-1 start to the year. The Arizona State Sun Devils are averaging 73 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 70 points on 42 percent shooting. Gerry Blakes is averaging 17.5 points and 4.5 rebounds while Tra Holder is averaging 11.5 points and three assists. Savon Goodman is the third double-digit scorer and Willie Atwood is grabbing 8.5 rebounds. The Arizona State Sun Devils have six players averaging at least eight points and they’re dishing 16 assists per game. The downside for ASU early on are the 17 turnovers per game and the subpar 30.8 percent shooting from deep. Arizona State has won 10 of its last 13 home games.
The Fighting Owls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Sun Devils are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games.
Kennesaw State played OK against two SEC teams and the Owls have two guys who can flat out takeover on the offensive end. While Arizona State is the better team, the Sun Devils aren't going to blow the doors off anybody this season. I like the value of the truckload of points here.
