Arizona State is 0-4 against the spread against the Pac-12, 4-1 against the spread following a loss, and 4-10 against the spread in Thursday games. Stanford are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven road games, 2-6 against the spread against the Pac-12, and 19-9 against the spread in their last 28 road games following three or more home games. The home team has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
This one looks tight and the spread represents a tight game but I will go with ASU to get it done at home against a stumbling Stanford.
