Against The Spread Pick
This PAC-12 match-up will see two middle of the pack teams in the conference face-off. The Sun Devils have won three games in a row now after beating USC in their last game. Stanford however, have lost two in a row, with their most recent loss coming to Colorado on the road. It needs to be noted that the Cardinal are a far better home team. They are 12-2 in their own building straight up with a record of 10-4 against the spread. However, the Sun Devils have been decent away from home, making this side one that I do not love at all. Because Stanford has had a ton of success at home, I lean to them to cover this number.
Over Under Pick
Unlike the side, I like this total a little more. We have two teams who average in the 70’s, but really the only difference is the defenses. Stanford allows just 58.7 points per game at home, while the Sun Devils allow 73 on the road. The under is 8-2-1 in Stanford’s last 11 games as a favorite. The under is also 10-4 this season in home games for the Cardinal (8-1 in their last 9 home games) and that is where I look to play this total.
