The Arizona State Sun Devils look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Arizona State Sun Devils are averaging 80.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 72.5 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Luguentz Dort is averaging 19.2 points and 5.4 rebounds while Kimani Lawrence is averaging 12.5 points and 1.9 assists.

The Tigers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sun Devils are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Sun Devils last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Sun Devils last 7 home games.

There's some concern for a letdown with the Arizona State Sun Devils after beating Kansas, one of the biggest wins in school history, but they've been extremely sharp at home and are outscoring teams by an average of 17 points. The Princeton Tigers have gotten waxed in most games when they've stepped up in comp and are shooting just 37 percent from the field on the road. Princeton is also being outscored by 14 points in its last five games. It's hard not to side with the Arizona State Sun Devils in a comfortable home victory.

Pick:
Arizona State Sun Devils -16
