The Line: Arizona State Sun Devils -12.5 -- Over/Under:
The Colorado Buffaloes look for a road win when they travel to play the Arizona State Sun Devils.
The Arizona State Sun Devils are coming off of a huge win on the road at UCLA and look to get past Colorado on Saturday. The ASU offense averages 27.6 points per game with 438 yards per game. The Arizona State offense is led by quarterback Mike Bercovici who has 1,344 yards with 9 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. The ASU rushing attack is led by DeMario Richard with 508 yards and 4 touchdowns. The ASU receivers are led by D.J. Foster with 246 yards and 2 touchdowns. DeMario Richard also catches passes out of the backfield for 240 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Arizona State defense has allowed 26.8 points per game with 369.4 yards per game. The ASU defense has 11 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, and 5 interceptions. Arizona State looks to build upon their big win last week and can’t afford to drop a game against Colorado.
The Colorado Buffaloes are coming off of a loss against Oregon this weekend where they played well but let it slip away in the second half. The Colorado offense averages 33.4 points per game with 443.6 yards per game. The Colorado offense is led by quarterback Sefo Liufau with 1,002 yards with 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. The Colorado rushing attack is led by Phillip Lindsay with 280 yards and 3 touchdowns, as well as Christian Powell with 275 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Colorado receivers are led by Nelson Spruce who has 363 yards and 1 touchdown. The Colorado defense is averaging 21.4 points per game with 380.4 yards per game. The Colorado defense has 9 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, and 8 interceptions. This Colorado team looked good against Oregon for three quarters and they will look to build on that to try and upset Arizona State on the road.
Colorado is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games. Colorado is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The under is 4-1 in Colorado’s last 5 games. Arizona State is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 October games. ASU is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 5-0 in Arizona State’s last 5 games. The home team is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 meetings.
Arizona State will come into this game with a lot of confidence after knocking off UCLA last weekend and will look to keep rolling against Colorado. Colorado has kept improving this year but I think traveling to Arizona State will be too much for them. I have to side with the home team here.
