I’m sticking with Stanford here. Not necessarily a game I’m rushing to bet, but the Cardinal have been playing the better basketball in recent games and while Arizona State’s won games here and there, they haven’t been covering and have been tough to back in the underdog role. I think it’s very telling that this line is where it is. Give me Stanford.
