4:00 p.m. ET: Utah Utes (8-9) at Arizona State Sun Devils (5-9)
Spread: ASU -2
Either Utah or Arizona State will get back into the win column Monday afternoon when they meet in a Pac-12 game. The Sun Devils have gone 3-4 at home. Arizona State is 1-5 in games decided by 10 or more points. The Utes are 1-6 in Pac-12 play. Utah is 6th in the Pac-12 scoring 71.7 points per game and is shooting 42.6%. Arizona State has played decent on the defensive end, allowing an average of only 67.9 points per game and 41.3% shooting. Utah is missing its leading scorer and leader in blocked shots Branden Carlson and his absence will be felt at both ends of the court. These teams have split the 2 game series in the previous 2 years with both teams winning on their home floors. It is hard to trust this ASU team especially after their recent covid bouts but this Utah team is much worse, especially on the road. Look for ASU to come out hungry to get a big much-needed win at home. Take ASU and the Over in this one.
- The Favorite is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
