The Arizona State Sun Devils and USC Trojans meet Thursday in the college basketball Pac-12 Tournament Quarterfinal at the T-Mobile Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Arizona State Sun Devils are averaging 70.7 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 67.6 points on 39.4 percent shooting. Desmond Cambridge Jr. is averaging 13.4 points and 2.3 assists, while Marcus Bagley is averaging 12.5 points and 4 rebounds. DJ Horne is the third double-digit scorer and Frankie Collins is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Arizona State Sun Devils are shooting 31.3 percent from beyond the arc and 69.5 percent from the free throw line. The Arizona State Sun Devils are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game.

The USC Trojans are averaging 72.8 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 66.9 points on 39 percent shooting. Boogie Ellis is averaging 18.1 points and 3 assists, while Drew Peterson is averaging 14.1 points and 4.5 assists. Reese Dixon-Waters is dishing 1.1 assists and Kobe Johnson is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The USC Trojans are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The USC Trojans are allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.1 rebounds per game.

The Sun Devils are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Trojans are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games. The over is 5-2 in Sun Devils last 7 neutral site games. The over is 5-1 in Trojans last 6 Thursday games.

The USC Trojans beat Arizona State twice this season, which includes a win a couple of days ago. I’d assume a rested USC side could take advantage of an ASU team that played yesterday and had issues putting away a bad Oregon State club. USC wins in the favorite role by an average of 10.3 points. USC is also 6-1 ATS when favorites of 7 or fewer points. Give me the Trojans.
