Arizona State Sun Devils vs Stanford Cardinal

Where: Maples Pavilion, Stanford, California

When: Saturday January 12, 2019 6:00 pm Eastern

We have the makings of a solid Pac-12 matchup on Saturday afternoon when the Arizona State Sun Devils travel north to Stanford and a matchup with the Stanford Cardinal. Stanford is 2-1 in conference play and has all three of their conference games this far this season.

ASU Knocks off California

Arizona State dropped their conference home opener against Utah, and have reeled off successive victories over over Colorado at home and on Wednesday night visited Cal and defeated them in their own barn for a 80-66 blowout win. Sophomore guard Remy Martin came off the bench to lead the Sun Devils with 24 points and eight assists. Senior forward Zylan Cheatham scored 17 points with six rebounds for an ASU squad that shot 47 percent from the field, 30 percent from downtown and 69 percent from the charity stripe.

The Sun Devils aren’t listing anyone on their injury report for Saturday’s game with Stanford.

Arizona State scores an average of 80 points and allow an average of 72 points per game. The Sun Devils are shooting 44 percent from the field, 33 percent from long range and 67 percent from the charity stripe. Arizona State is averging 43 rebounds, 14 assists and 13 turnovers per game this season.

Stanford is Riding the Struggle Bus

Stanford is below .500 for their season and winless in the Pac-12 so in 2019. They’ve lost on the road to UCLA and USC and lost on Wednesday night at home to Arizona. Sophomore forward KZ Okpala led the Cardinal with 29 points, six rebounds and four assists and sophomore Daejon Davis scored 15 points, six rebounds and three assists. Stanford shot 54 percent from the floor, just 1-8 from long range and 57 percent from the charity stripe in their loss to Arizona.

Freshman guard Cormac Ryan has found his way on the injury list with a finger injury. Ryan is Stanfords third leading scorer and averages 31 minutes per contest and is listed as questionable for Saturday afternoons contest with Arizona State.

Stanford scores an average of 72 points and allows an average of 73 points per game this season. The Cardinal shoot 44 percent from the field, 33 percent from long range and 66 percent from the charity stripe. Stanford averages a total of 36 rebounds, 13 assists and 16 turnovers per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

Stanford is struggling and if Ryan doesn’t play they will be in even bigger trouble against a very talented ASU side. According to KenPom, ASU has one of the top offenses in NCAA hoops this season and I fail to see how ASU doesn’t cover the three points on Saturday. I will be playing Arizona State on Saturday.

Prediction: ASU -3 Points

Full-Game Total Pick

This total is perfect because I have this contest at 154 points. ASU is a very strong offensive side that doesn’t seem to mind allowing points and I think Stanford can score at least 70 points on Saturday. I also think ASU is good for at least 80 points against the non existent Stanford Cardinal defense. I will play the over in this game.

Prediction: Over 147 points
