Colorado is 6-1 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record, 1-4 against the spread following a loss, and 1-6 against the spread against the Pac-12. Arizona State is 4-0 against the spread following a loss, 5-12-1 against the spread in their last 18 road games, and 1-4 against the spead against the Pac-12. The home team has covered the points spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
I don’t love this game because I haven’t seen enough consistency out of either team and Colorado has been banged up this year but I look for CU to get the win and cover the mild number at home.
