Joe’s Pick Against the Spread

Yesterday’s come from behind win wasn’t something good Stanford did. It was bad play by Arizona State that got them the win. The Cardinal had shot around 37% from the field over their last five and had given up almost 50% from the field during that span. Those aren’t numbers that just disappear. I’m betting the Wildcats to squash the Cardinal! Question: Did you know that you could be betting for cheaper? Almost all sportsbooks charge the bettor -110 odds on sides and totals. Did you know that you could be laying only -105 at BetanySports?
