The Oregon Ducks and Arizona State Sun Devils meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Wells Fargo Arena.
The Oregon Ducks look for another win after splitting their last six games. The Oregon Ducks are averaging 72.5 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 64.2 points on 39.3 percent shooting. Payton Pritchard is averaging 11.5 points and 3.6 rebounds while Paul White is averaging 10.8 points and 1.5 assists. Victor Bailey Jr. is dishing 1.1 assists and Louis King is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Oregon Ducks are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 73.5 percent from the free throw line. The Oregon Ducks are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.3 rebounds per game. The Oregon Ducks have split their last four road games.
The Arizona State Sun Devils look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Arizona State Sun Devils are averaging 79.2 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 72.9 points on 40.7 percent shooting. Luguentz Dort is averaging 16.6 points and 4.6 rebounds while Remy Martin is averaging 12.4 points and four assists. Zylan Cheatham is the third double-digit scorer and Rob Edwards is grabbing three rebounds. The Arizona State Sun Devils are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 65.4 percent from the free throw line. The Arizona State Sun Devils are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game. The Arizona State Sun Devils have won eight of their last 10 home games.
The Ducks are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games following a straight up win, 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The Sun Devils are 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 vs. Pacific-12, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Ducks are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Arizona State and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 8-3 in Sun Devils last 11 overall. The under is 5-0 in Ducks last 5 road games.
The Oregon Ducks are coming off a surprise win over the Arizona Wildcats, but I'm still not ready to buy into this team, especially without Bol Bol. Oregon still has issues scoring the basketball and is shooting under 42 percent from the field in its last five games. The Arizona State Sun Devils are an up tempo team that's averaging over 80 points at home and can get loose at any moment. This feels like a bad matchup for the Oregon Ducks, and they don't have the firepower to counter what Arizona State does well. I'll lay the reasonable number with ASU at home.
