Last years matchup between Arizona State and Colorado produced a combined 71 points and the winner in the last five meetings has scored at least 38 points. Add in that history and the way Arizona State just watches the other team score over and over again, there's going to be a ton of points scored in this contest. I can't back the Buffaloes and the big chalk with the way the Sun Devils can put points on the board. So, I'm going to side with the over.
