The Colorado Buffaloes lost their 2nd straight game and dropped to 1-2 on the season after being defeated by the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 30-0, this past Saturday. Colorado once again struggled on the offensive end and could not fight back against Minnesota after going into halftime trailing by a 13-0 margin.

The Arizona State Sun Devils dropped to 2-1 on the season after being defeated by the 23rd ranked BYU Cougars, 27-17, this past Saturday. Arizona State struggled with turnovers in the tough BYU environment and could not fight back after going into halftime trailing by a 21-7 margin. Arizona State outgained BYU by a 426-361 margin, however, lost the turnover battle by a 4-2 margin in the loss.

The Buffaloes are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 conference games, however, are just 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up loss. The Sun Devils are 2-7 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and just 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games as a favorite.

Colorado played Texas A&M tough just a few weeks ago, but there is no way I can trust this Colorado offense which comes into this game ranked just 126th in total offense & 129th in passing offense. Arizona State suffered a tough victory at BYU, however, the Sun Devils have a solid rushing attack and after seeing Minnesota run all over Colorado last week, I think Arizona State has no trouble pulling away in this one and that they cover this double-digit spread. Good Luck!
