The Arizona State Sun Devils are 8-1 for the season and after their win over Notre Dame last Saturday they are in the mix for a possible spot in the college football playoff. A lot has to happen for ASU to make the playoff but winning out is a very important part of the equation. The Arizona State offense is averaging 36.7 points and 475.7 yards per game and they are led by QB Taylor Kelly who has completed 59.5 percent of his passes with 12 touchdowns and three interceptions and he has rushed for 248 yards and three touchdowns.

The Arizona State defense allows 24.9 points and 396.6 yards per game with 16 takeaways and 27 sacks. Jordan Simone has 82 tackles, Damarious Randall has 79 tackles, and Marcus Hardison has six sacks. Arizona State’s lone loss was to UCLA in a game where Kelly was injured.
Oregon State is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, 0-4 against the spread in their last four Pac-12 games, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games against a team with a winning road record. Arizona State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, 5-0 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games against a team with a winning home record. The underdog is 4-1-1 against the spread in the last six meetings of these two.
The total for this is set at 62 and don't see this one going that hhigh so my free pickis the under. I also have a pick on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
