NCAAF Odds: Colorado Buffaloes -8 / Over/Under: 60



Bet The Arizona State Sun Devils at +8 Because…

The Arizona State Sun Devils re playing excellent football and have more talent on their roster. Arizona State (5-1 SU, 4-2 ATS) is coming off a narrow 23-20 win over UCLA last weekend while covering the college football betting line as an 8-point underdog by forcing a stunning four turnovers in the win. Arizona State is averaging 39.7 points per game as quarterback Manny Wilkins has completed an impressive 65.1 percent of his passes for 1,233 yards with five touchdowns, and four interceptions.

With Wilkins questionable for this affair, backup Brady White is completing 51 percent of his passes for 259 yards with 2 touchdowns and one interception. Running back Demario Richard has rushed for a team-high 436 yards and two touchdowns while fellow back Kalen Ballage has added 310 yards and a whopping nine touchdowns for the Sun Devils. Defensively, Arizona State is allowing a whopping 33.0 points per game.

Bet The Colorado Buffaloes at -8 Because…

The Buffs are playing at home and have the far better defense. Colorado (4-2 SU, 6-0 ATS) is coming off a narrow 21-17 loss against US last weekend but covered the spread as a 5.5-point underdog.

This season, Colorado is averaging a stellar 38.8 points per game. With starting signal-caller Sefo Liufau likely sitting this affair out, backup quarterback Steven Montez has completed a solid 62.9 percent of his passes for 940 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions. Running back Phillip Lindsay has rushed for a team-high 395 yards and six touchdowns while Montez has added 218 rushing yards and one score.

Defensively, Colorado is limiting the opposition to a modest 20.7 points per game. Kenneth Olugbode has led the Colorado’s defensive effort this season with 44 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, one sack and one interception while Jimmie Gilbert has added 24 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.

Expert Prediction and Pick

I’ve been really impressed with Colorado this season, but I don’t see them beating Arizona State by nine points or more to cover the college football betting line in this Week 7 pairing. I know Colorado has gone 4-0 ATS in their last four conference games and 7-0 ATS in their last seven games overall, Arizona State has gone 5-1 ATS in their last six conference games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

While the home team in this Pac-12 rivalry has gone 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings, I like the Arizona State Sun devils to snap that streak in this contest – by winning outright!
