Pac-12 Battle Pits Arizona and Arizona State During Rivalry Week
Can Arizona survive without Brandon Ashley?
Ashley will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury. He is the third-leading scorer on the team. Ashley went down early in the February 1 game against California, which turned out to be the first and only loss of the season to this point for the Wildcats. The Wildcats will not look to replace Ashley. Instead, they will rely on their young talent to play well and keep the team in the win column as much as possible.
Sun Devils nearly perfect at home this season
Arizona State enters this Pac-12 battle with a 13-1 record at home. To make things more difficult for the Wildcats, Arizona State enters this contest on a five-game home winning streak against conference opponents. The Sun Devils sit outside the top-25 looking in, but have played incredibly well of late. They have won five times in their last six games played and enter this game on a two-game winning streak.
NCAA rivalry week keeps getting better and better with each passing game. Friday night’s contest from the Wells Fargo Arena should be an exciting one. At TopBet.eu, the Wildcats are the likely favorites at -5.5 (-110) against the Sun Devils. The spread is favorable, but we will lay 20 percent of our bankroll on Arizona and the -240 money line on Friday night.
