Utah Utes vs. Arizona State Sun Devils NCAAB Free Pick
Play Arizona State Sun Devils +5.
I’m recommending a play on Arizona State plus the points on Thursday night. Three straight road losses, but the Sun Devils are back home where they’re 8-1 SU on the season. ASU was outstanding on the defensive end the last two games, but need an offensive uptick. The Sun Devils allowed just 59 & 55 points to the two Oregon schools the last two times out, holding the Ducks & Beavers to a combined 6-of-20 from behind the arc. The problem has been their own shooting numbers, but at home ASU nails over 47% of their shots, while forcing visitors into a 0.73 assist-turnover ratio.
Utah has played just four games away from home, (two neutral and two true road games), and have averaged just 58.3 ppg in those outings. Their shooting has really hit the skids outside of Salt Lake, making just 80-of-205 FGA (39%) and 17-of-73, or 23% of their 3-pointers. We should also note that their free throw shooting has left a lot to be desired away from home. The underdog is on a 5-1 ATS run in this series and Arizona State is 34-17 ATS following two straight conference losses under Herb Sendek. It’s Utah’s first game away from home since December 20 and I believe they’ll struggle with this number. I’m recommending a play on Arizona State plus the points on Thursday. Thanks & GL!

Scott Spreitzer looks to rock the books with a blowout side. Scott suffered a tough push last night with Fresno, but lands in the win column tonight. It’s his BLOCKBUSTER BEATDOWN GAME OF THE MONTH, a side backed by a 100% ATS spot with a scheduling situation that’s as good as it gets!
