Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Arizona State Sun Devils and Stanford Cardinal face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Stanford Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was Arizona State that secured the 28-10 victory. 

Arizona State comes into this game with a 2-4 record overall but one of those wins came in the last game. Against the Washington Huskies, Arizona State scored 45 points, and that was enough to win by seven points. Arizona State scored 21 points in the second quarter. Trenton Bourguet completed 15 of his 21 passes for 182 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Arizona State is averaging 26.8 points while their defense is giving up 30.2 points per game. The defense has been an issue, even in the games that they have won, and in this game, the defense is going to  need to be better. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Stanford Cardinal who sit with a 2-4 record overall, but they are coming off a victory in the last game. Stanford’s defense was strong giving up only 14 points to Notre Dame and that was the difference as they secured the two-point victory. Tanner McKee completed 26 of his 38 passes for 288 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Two games ago Stanford lost to Oregon State 28-27. Stanford is averaging 26.8 points while their defense is giving up 30.2 points per game. 

Arizona State is 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games on grass. Stanford is 1-6 against the spread in their last seven home games. The home team is 11-5-1 against the spread in the last 17 meetings played between Arizona State and Stanford. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings between the two teams. 

The question is will Stanford be able to score, even against a terrible Arizona State defense. I’m not sold that this Stanford team can pull away from anyone, even with a bad defense. Look for Arizona State to continue their strong scoring as they did in the last game, and that will be the difference as Arizona State keeps this game close. Back Arizona State against the spread.
