Utes bounce back

Utah suffered a 30-23 loss at USC a month ago, but the Utes have won back-to-back games since then, including a 52-7 win at Oregon State last weekend. Utah is 5-1 on the year, 2-1 in the Pac-12, 3-3 against the spread and 5-1 with the under.

Utah is a defensive-led team. The Utes are giving up just 13.2 points and 271.5 yards per game this season. The Utah offense is putting up 34.8 points and 467.3 yards per game. Tyler Huntley is leading the offense with 1,393 passing yards and nine touchdowns while also rushing for 197 yards and three scores. Zack Moss is the team’s leading rusher with 514 yards and six scores while Bryan Thompson has 11 catches for 310 yards and two touchdowns. The defense is led by Devin Lloyd, who has 42 tackles with three sacks and an interception.

Arizona State finding ways to win

Arizona State is coming off a 38-34 win at home over Washington State last weekend to pick up back-to-back wins. The Sun Devils are 5-1 on the year, 2-1 in the Pac-12, 3-3 against the spread and 4-2 with the under.

ASU has been defensive-led as well this season, allowing just 17.7 points and 354.5 yards per game. Offensively, the Sun Devils are producing 25.3 points and 402.7 yards per contest. Quarterback Jayden Daniels is leading the ASU offense with 1,610 passing yards and eight touchdowns while also rushing for 198 yards and two scores. Eno Benjamin has rushed for 529 yards and seven scores while Brandon Aiyuk has caught 31 passes for 651 yards and five touchdowns.

College Football Betting Trends

Utah

Utah has covered the spread in five games in October and 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a win.

Arizona State

The Sun Devils are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games on fieldturf and 4-1 ATS in their last five games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.

Prediction:

Arizona State has won and covered the spread in the last two meetings with Utah. This game should be a physical matchup, but Arizona State has found a way to be competitive in every game. The lone loss was by just three points against Colorado. The Sun Devils already have road wins against Cal and Michigan State and I think they can be competitive with this Utah team as well. The Utes haven’t had to meet a team that can match its physicality up front, and I think that will give it problems in trying to pull away in the late stages of the game.
