Against the Spread Pick
These two teams have struggled mightily since opening conference play, as they’ve each gone 1-3 vs. their fellow Pac-12 rivals. Of course, someone’s going to improve on that record on Saturday, and there’s a chance that that could be Arizona State. Sure, the Sun Devils have struggled recently, going 2-5 over their last seven. However, three of these losses came against ranked opponents, and they’re a respectable 6-2 at home this year.
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, there’s not nearly as many reasons for optimism when it comes to Utah. The Runnin’ Utes are also struggling of late, going 1-4 over their last five (including an active three-game losing streak). Similar to their opponent, three of those losses did come against ranked opponents, and Utah also had an incredible win over #6 Kentucky back in December. Still, Utah has also struggled on the road, going 1-3 this year.
