College Basketball: Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 6:00 pm (Haas Pavilion)
The Line: California +5 -- Over/Under: 132.5
The Arizona State Sun Devils (16-8, CONF 7-5) and the Cal Golden Bears (10-14, CONF 4-7) face off in a Pac 12 showdown at the Haas Pavilion. The Sun Devils have won the last four games played between the two teams.
The Sun Devils haven’t gotten as much attention as they should have, especially with their play as of late. ASU comes into this game having won four games in a row, and they have covered the spread in three of those games. Over the last five games the Sun Devils are averaging 75.2 points per game, while shooting 44 percent from the field.
Guard Remy Martin is the star for the Sun Devils and he is currently averaging 19.5 points per game.
The Cal Golden Bears are 10-14 overall, with all ten of their wins coming on their home floor. The stats overall don’t look terrible for Cal, but as of late, the offense has struggling averaging only 60.6 points per game.
Coming into this game Cal has lost three games in a row and failed to cover the spread in two of those games.
Guard Matt Bradley is the star of the Golden Bears averaging 17.7 points. The real issue for Cal is outside of Bradley, there isn’t a whole lot of production to go around.
The Sun Devils are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. The Golden Bears are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games against the Pac 12. The road team is 23-11 ATS in the last 34 meetings between Cal and Arizona State.
The Sun Devils are a good offensive team, and the Golden Bears are not. Look for the Sun Devils offense to have enough success to win this game and cover the spread.
