By the time we head into the late stages of November, we should have a pretty solid grasp of which 4 teams will be heading into the college football playoff. Whether any of the teams from Arizona will be in the mix remains to be seen, but it has to be said that they will need to be a whole lot better than they were last year of they want to even be anywhere near the mix. Whether they are or are not doesn’t really matter, but nothing says college football quite like a big rivalry game. There is always bad blood on display, and both teams taking part want to be able to gloat about their win over their rivals until the next time they meet. It’s fair to say that both sets of fans would like this game to be for something more than just bragging rights, as was the case in 2014, when both teams went into the game sitting just outside the top 10. It’s a little too early to know what the NCAA football betting lines will be for this one, but we can take a look at how they might match up.
In Depth Analysis On The Sun Devils Vs Wildcats Expert Picks

Why bet on the Arizona State Sun Devils
It was the Arizona State Sun Devils who came away with the win last year, delivering a 52-37 whooping in their own stadium. That ended up being their 3rd win on 4 years over the Wildcats, with the only loss during that stretch being the one in the aforementioned 2014 game. Despite that nice run, this is a match-up that has been pretty evenly contested over the years, but it has to be said that the recent meetings have seen some pretty high scoring. The OVER/UNDER is certainly something that you are going to want to have a look at here. Another thing to consider is that the Sun Devils went just 6-7 last season, and only had a single win on the road all year.
Why bet on the Arizona Wildcats
The Wildcats also had something of a disappointing season last year, going just 7-6. They did finish out the season well, though, winning the Gildan New Mexico Bowl to end the year with a winning record. Give how things went the year prior for this team, that outcome still has to be viewed as a bit of a letdown. The Wildcats did prove to be quite strong at home, though, going 4-2 on the season, which might well make them the betting favorites for this one. They will certainly be looking to improve on their overall record against the Sun Devils, which currently sits at 48-40-1.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
It’s very tough to make college football expert picks for a game so late in the season when there is really nothing yet to go on. We will have a better idea of what to expect when we get to see the body of work for these two in the upcoming season. For now, though, let’s take the Arizona Wildcats, and the OVER.
