The Line: Stanford +3 -- Over/Under: 147.5
The Arizona State Sun Devils and Stanford Cardinal meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Maples Pavilion.
The Arizona State Sun Devils look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Arizona State Sun Devils are averaging 80.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 72.5 points on 39.9 percent shooting. Luguentz Dort is averaging 17.2 points and 4.9 rebounds while Remy Martin is averaging 12.9 points and 4.3 assists. Zylan Cheatham is the third double-digit scorer and Kimani Lawrence is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Arizona State Sun Devils are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 67.7 percent from the free throw line. The Arizona State Sun Devils are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game. The Arizona State Sun Devils have won two of their last three road games.
The Stanford Cardinal could also use a win after losing four of their last five games. The Stanford Cardinal are averaging 72.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 73.8 points on 43.7 percent shooting. KZ Okpala is averaging 17.5 points and 6.5 rebounds while Daejon Davis is averaging 12.1 points and 4.1 assists. Cormac Ryan is the third double-digit scorer and Oscar da Silva is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Stanford Cardinal are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 66.2 percent from the free throw line. The Stanford Cardinal are allowing 30.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.7 rebounds per game. The Stanford Cardinal have won five of their last six home games.
The Sun Devils are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 6-15-2 ATS in their last 23 vs. Pacific-12 and 3-9-2 ATS in their last 14 road games. The Cardinal are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 13-4 ATS in their last 17 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Sun Devils are 1-6-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Stanford and 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Cardinal last 6 overall. The under is 7-2 in Sun Devils last 9 overall.
The Stanford Cardinal have been impressive at home this season where they're shooting 52.5 percent from the field and outscoring teams by 9.5 points. The problem is Stanford has fallen off a cliff defensively as of late, and that's not something you want to see when going up against an Arizona State offense that has some above-average firepower. Arizona State simply has the better athletes, and that's a lot of the reason why the Sun Devils have won five of the last eight meetings against the Stanford Cardinal. I'll lay the bucket with the road team.
