Instant Analysis

Arizona State snuck into the tournament, and now is the time to jump on it after opening as one-point favorites against Nevada. Looking to capitalize on the NCAA Tournament bid, I expect the Sun Devils to be ready for an impressive showing in Dayton.

Head coach Bobby Hurley has taken Arizona State to the Big Dance twice before and should be extremely prepared heading into the play-in game early this week.

The Sun Devils racked up five Quad 1 wins this season with a buzzer-beater over Arizona — one of the best finishes of the season — serving as a feather in their cap. Now, Arizona State will look to rely on its pesky defense to advance to the Round of 64.

Like Arizona State, Nevada is returning to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2019. The Wolf Pack have been extremely efficient this season, finishing fourth in the Mountain West in both scoring offense (72.6) and scoring defense (66.9).

Look for Arizona State’s defense to be the difference-maker in this game. The Sun Devils have been a shutdown defense inside the arc, ranking sixth in the nation in 2-point defense.

I like Arizona State at -1 and would play this all the way to -3.5.
