Arizona State vs. USC odds
Spread: USC -5
Moneyline: USC -205, Arizona State +175
Having faced off already once this year, USC (21-9, 13-6 Pac-12) went to Tempe and bested Arizona State (20-10, 11-8 Pac-12) 77-69 back on January 21. As it is now, many consider this USC-team to be the third-most talented in the Pac-12 conference, which is still a strong claim considering the schools at the top. For Arizona State, they have had a mostly solid season highlighted by a recent half-court buzzer beater over rival-Arizona in Tucson. Something tells me ASU supporters will remember that one forever.
With the Trojans and Sun Devils sitting at third and fourth in the Pac-12 (1.0 game apart) respectively, both sides have pivotal seeding to play for. With the conference tournament in “Fabulous” Las Vegas on the horizon, a win for either school on Saturday night will loom large.
The Pick: USC -5
USC’s last 10 victories have come by at least six points, so it is used to winning comfortably in Pac-12 action. Expect the Trojans to grab some momentum heading into next week’s Pac-12 Tournament by picking up a comfortable victory at home on Saturday. Take SC to cover here.
