2007-2008 Arizona State Sun Devils College Basketball Betting Odds

College basketball betting odds show that Arizona State is one of the better defensive teams in the Pac-10.

Basketball betting stats show that Arizona State allowed just 61.8 points per game in head coach Herb Sendek’s first season in Tempe.

College basketball betting odds experts will look at Arizona State as a team that can compete in the Pac-10.  Junior forward Jeff Pendergraph nearly averaged a double-double last season with 12.1 points and 9.1 rebounds (2nd in the Pac-10 according to college basketball betting odds stats). He was an excellent shooter at .551, ranking second in the league according to basketball betting stats.  The Sun Devils have a solid backcourt with senior Antwi Atuahene (6.9 ppg/3.7 rpg/2.9 apg according to college basketball betting odds stats) and sophomores Derek Glasser (6.3 ppg/3.2 apg according to college basketball betting odds stats), Christian Polk (12 points per game according to basketball betting stats) and Jerren Shipp (7.6ppg according to college basketball betting odds stats). Glasser ranked seventh in the league with a 1.64 assist to turnover ratio according to college basketball betting odds stats.

Basketball betting experts see that ASU has a solid recruiting class. Highly-touted recruit James Harden should make an immediate impact for the Sun Devil offense according to college basketball betting odds experts. He's the first McDonald’s High School All-American to attend ASU straight out of high school since 1984 according to college basketball betting odds experts.The problem for Arizona State is that the Pac-10 may be the best conference in the country.  ASU has one of their better teams in recent memory but it may not show up that way.  The key according to college basketball betting odd experts will be how well they score.  The Sun Devils ranked last in the league in field goal percentage (.412) and ninth in three-point field goal percentage (.318) according to college basketball betting odds stats.  Pendergraph is the only returning frontline player with experience, so the Sun Devils will turn to newcomers to help on the boards and low post scoring. Sophomore center Eric Boatang, a transfer from Duke, will be called upon to make an immediate impact according to college basketball betting odds experts.
