Against The Spread Pick
Arizona State is a team that is streaking having won six straight since a road loss at Washington State at the back end of January. They defend home turf here against a middling Oregon State team that was unable to do much of anything right in their last game against Arizona on Thursday night. The Sun Devils will look to their four main scorers – led by guard Remy Martin and his 19.2 ppg – to outshoot the Beavers and put this one away early. Tres Tinkle of OSU is one of the best players in the league, but he isn’t getting enough help at this point in the season. I like the home team here as the Beavers a 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and the Sun Devils are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 contests.
Over Under Pick
The Beavers just aren’t scoring enough points to make the over feel like a worthy play here. They have lost by 20+ in each of their last two games and while it doesn’t feel like they have totally given up on the season there just isn’t a lot of urgency in their play. The Sun Devils give up less than 67 ppg at home and unless Tinkle gets going early it is hard to see where the Beavers’ points will come from to take this to the over. Play the under as it has gone 6-3 in the Beavers last nine February games, even though the Sun Devils have hit the over in five out of their last six games. Their defense will turn it on here.
