Nevada-Arizona State presents an interesting clash of teams that play in highly competitive conferences. Although these two sides may be trending in opposites directions as of late, Nevada finished 4th in a crowded Mountain West, while the Sun Devils endured powerhouse programs like UCLA, Arizona and USC in the Pac-12.
With ASU coming on strong in their conference tournament last week, the Sun Devils are showing as 2-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook over the Wolf Pack. The point total has been set 133.5, with the over juiced to -115 a couple moons before gameday.
