The Washington Huskies (13-16, CONF 3-13) and Arizona State Sun Devils (19-10, CONF 10-7) face off in a PAC 12 showdown face off at the ASU Wells Fargo Arena. Arizona State beat Washington 87-83 earlier this season.
Who saw this type of season coming for the Washington Huskies. Many believed coming into the season Washington could be a contender in the Pac 12, but that hasn’t been the case and they are really struggling coming into this game having lost nine of the last ten games.
Each of the nine games that the Huskies have lost they also have failed to cover the spread. In the last game against Washington State, Washington gave up 48 points.
In the Huskies game against the Cougars, it was Jaden McDaniels who put up 19 points and six rebounds.
Arizona State is a tournament team and had won seven games in a row, but they come into this game lost two games in a row. In the last game against USC the offense struggled putting up 61 points and that led to a loss for the Sun Devils.
At home this season Arizona State has a 12-2 record and their best strength has been the offense averaging 78.2 points per game.
Arizona State is led by Remy Martin who is averaging 19.6 points while shooting 44.5 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from deep.
If Martin can have a big game, the Sun Devils are going to have a great chance to come away with a big win.
Washington is 3-14 against the spread in their last 17 games overall. Washington is 3-13 against the spread in their last 16 road games. Washington is 6-21 against the spread in their last 27 games against the Pac 12. The road team is 21-10 against the spread in the last 31 meetings between Arizona State and Washington.
Washington has had issues covering spreads and they have no one to slow down Martin in this game. Look for the Sun Devils to run up the score and the Huskies will have no answer. Back Arizona State to cover the spread.
