Utah Utes vs Arizona State Sun Devils 1/17/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Utah Utes of the Pac-12 Conference will go against the Arizona State Sun Devils of the Pac-12 Conference in NCAAB action in Desert Financial Arena, Tempe, on Monday, January 17, 2022, at 4:00 PM (EST). Utah had a solid start to the season, sweeping all five of its matches.

 

Since the level of competition rose, the Utes struggled. In a defeat against Oregon State, the Utes were 5-point underdogs, and in a defeat to Washington, they were 10-point favorites. They covered the spread as 19.5-point underdogs against No. 6 Arizona, losing 82-64. In their last four games, Utah failed to cover the spread.

 

The Utes have a respectable offense, ranking 74th in adjusted efficiency. However, they do not shoot the ball exceptionally well, ranking below the top 175 in both 3-point and 2-point percentages. A strong offensive rebounding rate and the No. 14 free-throw shooting % in the country is Utah’s saving grace.

 

The Utah Utes are one of college basketball’s tallest squads. Branden Carlson, who was leading the team in scoring with 13.5 points per game, is out indefinitely with an appendix problem.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Utah’s previous 6 matches.
  • The University of Utah Utes is 14-2-1 ATS in their last 17 matches against Arizona State.
  • Utah is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 matches in the Pac-12 Conference.

Utah Utes vs Arizona State Sun Devils Predictions 1/17/2022

 

Arizona State is not satisfied with its recent performances, but it’ll take two matches in a week to make up for it. The Sun Devils were 5-7 in their first 12 games, although they only played two games since losing 66-65 to San Francisco on December 19. Six matches were canceled or postponed as a result of COVID-19.

 

In between the six postponed matches, Arizona State lost a 74-50 final against California on Jan. 2. On Saturday, the Sun Devils returned to action and were defeated by Colorado by 18 points as 1-point favorites. In their previous ten conference meetings, they only covered the spread twice.

 

The Sun Devils are a terrific defensive squad, but they are having a lot of trouble scoring. They are ranked 337th in effective field goal % and 315th in 2-point and 3-point percentage. Arizona State is also having trouble on the boards, with an offensive rebounding percentage of 251st in the country.

 

In terms of experience and average height, the Sun Devils are also below the top 200. They’ll have to contend with a Utah defense that ranks 167th in adjusted efficiency.

 

DJ Horne tops Arizona State in scoring with 13.4 points per game, while forward Kimani Lawrence leads the team with 10.4 points and 7.5 rebounds. Marcus Bagley, who was averaging 10.0 points per game, is out with a knee injury.

 

  • The University of Arizona State Sun Devils is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Arizona State’s last 6 matches at home against Utah.
  • The Sun Devils are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 matches in the Pac-12 Conference.

Utah Utes vs Arizona State Sun Devils. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Utah Utes. On Monday afternoon, I don’t want to be a member of this Arizona State squad. COVID-19 impacted the Sun Devils harder than any other team in college basketball, utterly derailing their schedule for the previous month. They weren’t performing well before that, so I don’t anticipate much to change in a short period following Saturday’s humiliation.

 

Utah is not great recently, but they are on the floor. On Monday, the Utes will have a significant height advantage, since they are one of the tallest teams in the country. They are dominating this series of late and should capture this one as well. The Utah Utes will win predicted at 69-66.
