I can make a case for either side here being a rivalry game and you can usually throw trends and records out the window. That being said, I’m making the case for Arizona here, as this game does feature two porous defenses, but over the course of the season, I’d probably trust Arizona to make more big plays offensively than I would ASU. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but I lean Arizona laying the points here.
