Bet on Arizona State +13 Because…
Arizona State’s defense finally stepped it up in a Pac-12 game in their last. As an 8-point home dog, ASU wasn’t supposed to hang with UCLA on Oct. 8. All the Sun Devils did was hold the Bruins to 20 points in a 23 to 20 ASU win. It was a great performance by the defense that kept UCLA to 1 net yard rushing from 23 carries, forced UCLA QB Josh Rosen into an interception and held Rosen to a 24 out of 43 night.
Bet on Colorado -13 Because…
The Buffaloes haven’t played badly yet this season. Colorado has beaten teams where they are favored and have kept it close against teams where they’ve been underdogs. The Buffs go into this Pac-12 battle after almost upsetting USC in a 17 to 21 road loss on Oct. 8 as a +5 dog. It was Colorado’s sixth straight cover against the spread.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
This game comes down to what one team does well and what the other team doesn’t do so well. The team that doesn’t do something so well is Arizona State. ASU gives up 404.3 passing yards per game on average. The Sun Devils are so bad against the pass that most teams give up on rushing the football in lieu of passing it.
Sure, ASU’s defense came up big against Rosen and UCLA’s passing offense on Oct. 8. But that was more of an anomaly than a real testament to how good ASU’s pass defense is. The Sun Devils are in tough against Colorado on the road on Oct. 15.
The Buffaloes are one of the better offensive teams in the Pac 12. Colorado averages 504.5 total yards per game. They rush for close to 200 yards per game while passing for over 300 yards per game. That kind of balance should give the Sun Devils fits.
I think ASU can hang with Colorado for a while in this game. But, eventually, Colorado’s superior talent and better coaching should take over. The Buffaloes win by 17 is my prediction.
