The Line: Washington Huskies +3.5 -- Over/Under: 61.5
The Washington Huskies and the Arizona State Sun Devils face off on Saturday Night in late night Pac-12 College football action.
The Washington Huskies have lost two of their last three games but after playing back-to-back road games they return home for this big one in the Pac-12. The UW offense is averaging 32.7 points and 364.6 yards per game and are led by QB Cyler Miles who was injured last game and is questionable here and for the season he has completed 66.2 percent of his passes for 10 touchdowns and one interception. Lavon Coleman anchors the Huskies ground attack averaging 4.1 yards per carry and Jaydon Mickens is the number one target in the passing game with 36 receptions. The Washington defense is allowing 24.7 points and 415.4 yards per game with five interceptions, 10 fumble recoveries, and 27 sacks. Danny Shelton has 57 tackles and 7.5 sacks and John Timu and Shaq Thompson have 53 tackles each. Washington gets another chance here to prove they can beat a quality opponent.
The Arizona State Sun Devils have just one loss on the season but it appears he may have a QB controversy on their hands. Starting QB Taylor Kelly is healthy again and Todd Graham has said all along that when he is healthy he will play but it is tough to argue hat Mike Bercovici doesn’t deserve to play since he has been rock solid filling in. My guess is Kelly starts and gets most of the reps. D.J.Foster is ASU’s leading ground gainer with 612 yards and six touchdowns and Jaelen Strong has 49 catches and six touchdowns. Defensively Arizona State allows 27.8 points per game and 425.2 yards with two interceptions, six fumble recoveries, and 12 sacks. Damarious Randall has 58 tackles, Jordan Simone has 50 tackles, and Salamo Fiso and Antonio Longino each have 35 tackles. Arizona State is still very much in the title hunt in the Pac-12.
Washington is 17-7 against the spread in their last 24 home games, 5-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 12-5 against the spread in their last 17 games following a loss by 20 or more points. Arizona State is 5-0 against the spread in their last five October games, 1-6-1 against the spread on field turf, and 15-33-3 against the spread in their last 51 road games against a team with a winning home record. Arizona State is 9-1-1 against the spread in their last 11 games against Washington.
With the total at 62 the number looks to be about right but I have a slight lean to the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well on the App.
