Arizona State Sun Devils at Vanderbilt Commodores
- Spread: Pick ’em
- Over/under: 153
- Tip: 7 p.m. ET
- TV channel: SEC Network
After facing an 18-point first-half deficit against Georgia on Saturday, the Sun Devils (5-3-1 against the spread) pulled out a 76-74 win. Arizona State’s 45th-rated Adjusted Defensive Efficiency (95.7 opponents’ points per 100 possessions) was the difference-maker, forcing the Bulldogs into 19 turnovers with three steals via its lead guard Remy Martin.
The Commodores (3-5 ATS) have struggled in that area, as their opponents have generated a 9.9% steal rate. Despite the Sun Devils’ issues in the early goings on the road, they’ll jump out to a hotter start this time around — in large part because of their rebounding edge.
