ASU is now 13-2 overall, 1-2 in the Pac-12 and 10-3-2 against the spread. The Sun Devils are only 1-2-2 ATS in their last five.

Oregon has won six straight meetings with Arizona State, covering the spread in three of the last four meetings. This isn’t quite the same ASU team that Oregon has faced before. The Sun Devils are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 home games and 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a win. Oregon is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against a winning team. The public betting is slightly with Arizona State, and I agree. I think the Sun Devils cover tonight.
