Arizona State went into halftime with a 41-34 lead and held a lead for most of the 2nd half, however, the Sun Devils offense struggled down the stretch and the Bruins were able to get win after a Jaylen Clark hit a game-winning FT with just 0.1 second left in regulation.

It has been a tough season for both teams, however, there is no doubt that Arizona State has more talent, led by Remy Martin. Washington comes into this game with just a 1-6 road record and has struggled on both ends of the court as they rank just 288th in scoring offense & 284th in scoring defense. Arizona State is led by their offense, which ranks 98th in scoring offense, and I think the Sun Devils have no issue putting up 85-90 points in this one, I'm taking Arizona State to cover this large home spread. Good Luck!
