Arizona vs Arizona State Betting Prediction

Arizona comes into this game with a slim lead in the PAC-12 standings and they have won seven of their last eight games, but they will be on the road here. Arizona State is coming off of a great home win against Washington State, but they are only 8-9 in PAC-12 play. Arizona did beat ASU by a score of 105-60 just a few games ago and the Wildcats are one of the highest scoring teams in the country. These teams are pretty even when looking at defensive numbers, but Arizona is the much better shooting and rebounding team. I know the Sun Devils just beat Washington State, but I don’t think they will be able to keep this game close. Take Arizona to win big.
