Washington State comes into this game ranked T-230th in scoring offense, 338th in FG%, and T-171st in scoring defense.

Arizona State comes into this match-up ranked 108th in scoring offense, 205th in scoring defense, and 188th in defensive FG%.

Arizona State is the better team, however, the Sun Devils have struggled as of late, especially on the defensive end as over their last three games, Arizona State is allowing their opponents to average 78.6 ppg. Washington State has struggled on the road this season, posting just a 2-8 record, however, between the fact that I think the Cougars offense will have some success and they’ve been successful recently ATS vs. the Sun Devils, I think the play here is to take Washington State and the points. Good Luck!
