Early March is a wonderful time in the college basketball world. Spring is blooming. Small and mid-major conference tournaments are just beginning. Bubble teams are looking to bolster their resumes for the tournament.
The sheer volume of games on a given day can seem overwhelming, but for the value-seeking bettor, focusing on one or two games can prove to be quite profitable.
Tonight, one Pac-12 game sees two teams in very different situations heading into the postseason. Arizona State (19-10, 10-7 in conference) is looking to solidify an NCAA Tournament berth.
The Sun Devils host Washington (13-16, 3-13), a once promising team that has completely unraveled down the stretch.
Washington at Arizona State Odds
- Spread: Arizona State -6
- Over/Under: 142.5
- Time: 9 p.m. ET

Coming off two road losses, Arizona State returns to the friendly confines of Desert Financial Arena, where they are 6-1 straight-up in Pac-12 games this season.
Led by junior guard Remy Martin (19.6 ppg), Arizona State is projected as a 10-seed in the NCAA Tournament by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi. While most likely safe on the bubble, coach Bobby Hurley and his team will be motivated to protect against a late season slide as they head into the postseason.
On the other hand, Washington has been completely abysmal since conference play started in January. The Huskies have been even worse on the road.
