The Arizona State Sun Devils look for a big Pac-12 victory after winning four of their last six games. Mike Bercovici is completing 58.6 percent of his passes for 1,846 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. Bercovici has seven touchdown passes in his last three games. Devin Lucien and Tim White have combined for 641 receiving yards and six touchdowns while D.J. Foster has 32 receptions. The Arizona State Sun Devils ground game is averaging 156 yards per contest, and Demario Richard leads the way with 529 yards and four touchdowns.

Jalen Harvey, Tommy Hudson and Armand Perry are questionable.
The Ducks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 conference games and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Sun Devils are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games in October and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Ducks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Arizona State and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings overall.
This pick is only based on value. The Ducks have their quarterback back and look far better on the offensive side. I don't love anything else about this Oregon team, but the Ducks can score with some consistency now. In a tough Pac-12 matchup, I'll take the couple of points.
