The Sun Devils are 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games and just 2-13-1 ATS in their last 16 games against Utah. The Utes are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games, however, are just 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. Arizona State.

Arizona State has split their last 8 games, however, those 4 victories have come against the weaker teams in the Pac-12 and it has been hard for the Sun Devils to pick up victories this season due to a defense that ranks just 292nd in scoring defense & 240th in defensive FG%. Utah has struggled as of late, losing 5 of their last 8 games, and come into this game ranked 233rd in scoring offense, 74th in FG%, & 117th in scoring defense. Arizona State is just 2-5 on the road this season and although I have not been overly impressed from what I have seen from the Utes as of late, I think Utah will do enough in their final home game of the season to cover this small spread. Good Luck!
