Arizona State faces Arizona on Saturday, January 29th, 2022 at the McKale Center for a college basketball PAC-12 matchup.
Arizona State is coming off a 78-56 loss to USC in its last game on the road on January 24th. Arizona State has now lost two straight games and four of its last five games as well. Arizona State has not had a season to remember thus far, as the Sun Devils are 6-11 overall, 2-5 in conference play, and are sitting in 9th place in the PAC-12 standings. Arizona State has not been a great cover team either, owning a 6-9-2 against the spread record. Arizona State's leading scorer so far this season has been G DJ Horne, who has scored 13.6 points per game for the Sun Devils. F Kimani Lawrence leads the team in rebounds per game with 7.1 and G Marreon Jackson leads the team in assists per game with 3.5. Arizona State as a team has scored 63.1 points per game and has shot the ball at a 39.3% clip from the field. Arizona State also allows 68.8 points per game to its opponents.
Arizona is coming off a 75-59 loss to UCLA in its last game on the road on January 25th. Arizona was the favorite in that game but the Wildcats did not show up against their conference rivals. Arizona took its first loss in conference play in that one and now the #3 ranked Wildcats are 16-2 overall and 6-1 in PAC-12 competition. Arizona has been one of the top cover teams in the conference owning an 11-6-1 against the spread record. Arizona's leading scorer so far this season has been G Ben Mathurin, who has scored 17.4 points per game. C Christian Koloko leads the team in rebounds per game with 7.2 and G Kerr Kriisa leads the team in assists per game with 5.4. Arizona as a team has scored 87.1 points per game and has shot the ball at a 48.8% clip from the field. Arizona has also allowed 64.9 points per game to its opponents.
Arizona is a 21.5-point favorite and the total is set at 145.5. I think we see a strong bounce-back performance from this Arizona team and with the way that Arizona State has struggled in conference play, I have to side with the Wildcats at home here. Arizona has a lot more depth and secondary scoring, which should aid its efforts in this one.
