Arizona State Sun Devils vs. Washington Huskies – Against the Spread Pick
BETTING LINE: Arizona State -3.5 O/U 61.5
Last Game: Arizona State beat Stanford 26-10 and Washington lost to Oregon 45-20.
ATS PICK: Arizona State was knocked around by Stanford twice last season, but they played great in beating them in their last game. While the Sun Devils are known for their offense they won the Stanford game because of their defense. Washington’s only losses this season has come to the ranked teams of Stanford and Oregon. However, they are over-matched on offense and ASU will win and cover in this Pac 12 match up.
When you look at the betting trends Washington has tended to come back a legit betting team after losing. They are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games following a SU loss of more than 20 points and they are also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss. Still, ASU crushed UW last season scoring 53 points in the process and than may happen again.
ASU has covered the spread in the last 2 games and in both they were the betting underdog facing USC and Stanford. They also won both of those games against 2 of the better teams in the conference.
In terms of betting trends ASU has owned Washington over the last decade or so. The Sun Devils have covered the spread in their last 6 road games against the Huskies and are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games facing them overall.
ASU is the betting favorite in this game and the favorite is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 games between these Pac 12 rivals.
Another reason ASU will win and cover in this game is that they played great run defense last week in the win over Stanford and will do so again facing the UW rushing offense, which is their strength. The Huskies only rank 106th in the nation in passing yards per game.
In a couple of interesting betting trends that point to ASU covering is that they are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in October while Washington is only 16-40-2 ATS in their last 58 games in the month.
