Stanford meets Arizona State on Saturday night from Palo Alto. Stanford is coming off a 75-70 loss to Arizona at home on Wednesday. ASU beat Cal, 80-66 on Jan. 9 for their second straight win. They are now 2-1 in the Pac-12, while the Cardinal are 0-3.

Martin leads Sun Devils over Cal

Remy Martin scored a career-high 24 points off the bench and dished out eight assists to lead Arizona State over Cal on Wednesday night. The Sun Devils held the Golden Bears to just 38.5 percent shooting and forced 13 turnovers. Zylan Cheatham added 17 points and six boards for Arizona State.

ASU shot 47.5 percent from the floor and 8-of-26 from beyond the arc. That’s an accomplishment considering they started the game off 0-8 from beyond the arc and 1-13 from the field.

Leguentz Dort leads the Sun Devils with 17.2 points per game, while Martin leads in assists with 4.3 per game. ASU has been inconsistent this season, with losses coming against Princeton, Nevada, and Vanderbilt. Their only loss in the Pac-12 came against Utah, 96-86 at home on Jan. 3. Defense has been an issue at times, though they allow opponents to shoot just 39.9 percent from the field. On offense, they are averaging 80.3 points per game (52nd) on 44.6 percent shooting and 33 percent from beyond the arc.

Turnovers cost Stanford

Stanford lost at home by just five to Arizona on Wednesday and the reason is pretty simple. The Cardinal shot 54 percent from the floor but just 1-of-8 from beyond the arc. They also hurt themselves from the free throw line, making 15-of-26 (57.7%). But it all comes down to turnovers, as Arizona committed 10 and Stanford had 19. KZ Okpala matched his career-high for Stanford (7-8, 0-3 P12) with 29 points on 11-of-16 shooting with six rebounds and four assists. Daejon Davis added 15 points and six boards, but also had six turnovers.

“I didn’t get too many open 3s. They took that away,” Okpala said. “So, ‘just drive it.’ I have that in my game too.”

The Cardinal have now lost three straight games and four of five games. One of those losses came at San Francisco on Dec. 22, 74-65, which would be a low point for any Pac-12 team.

Stanford is led by Okpala, who averages 17.7 points per game and 6.5 rebounds. Stanford averages 72.3 points per game on 44.6 percent shooting (33.1% 3pt). They are allowing 73.8 points per game on 43.7 percent shooting (30.8% 3pt).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Stanford is not playing well and Arizona State is playing with a lot of confidence. This is not a good Stanford team and they could be near the bottom of the Pac-12 when it’s all said and done. ASU has won two straight and the Cal win should help build momentum on the road.

Prediction: Arizona State -3

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Stanford is an over squad because they don’t defend well but they do have some shooters. They are 11-5-1 Over their last 17 home games and 7-1 Over their last 8 Saturday games. They are also 6-0 Over their last 6 at home against Arizona State. The Sun Devils are 4-1 Over their last 5 vs. Stanford.

Prediction: Over 148
