Arizona State Sun Devils Team Facts

  • Arizona State has failed to cover the spread in each of its last five home games against non-AP-ranked teams.
  • Arizona State has lost the first half in three of its last four home games against conference opponents.

Matchup/League Facts

  • Washington State rank T36th among FBS teams for points per game this season (32.9).

Randy’s Pick

Washington State is the better team and should be favored, but laying a touchdown on the road with a team that’s lost three straight doesn’t feel ideal. We also can’t ignore that Washington State is 118th in total defense and 102nd in scoring defense, things that usually don’t improve on the road. Yes, Arizona State has its issues, especially offensively, where you can argue they’re the worst offensive team in a Power Five conference. If there was a game to show some signs of life, this would be it, especially at home. I’ll grab the free touchdown with Arizona State if forced to pick.
