Arizona State at Colorado Preview

Arizona State Sun Devils (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12):

The Sun Devils bounced back from a 41-20 loss to USC to knock off visiting UCLA 23-20 last week behind a stifling run defense (the Bruins finished with a minus-1 yard rushing). White and Sterling-Cole, however, combined for only 182 yards of total offense and tossed an interception apiece in the contest, so the return of the dual-threat Wilkins (1,233 passing yards, 254 rushing on the season) would obviously be a huge boon. Defensively, Arizona State ranks fifth nationally with 89.3 rushing yards allowed per game, but despite the presence of Pac-12 sacks leader Koron Crump (5.0), the Sun Devils own the FBS’ worst passing defense with 404.3 yards surrendered per outing.

Colorado Buffaloes (4-2, 2-1):

Despite forcing four turnovers, the Buffaloes fell late to USC (21-17) last week and made their first stay in the top-25 rankings a short one. After accumulating 789 yards of total offense and accounting for seven TDs in back-to-back wins over Oregon and Oregon State, Montez was limited to 223 yards and one score in the game as Colorado was held under 28 points for the first time this season. The Buffaloes, though, have taken great strides on both sides of the ball and rank in the top 25 nationally in both total offense (17th with 504.4 yards per game) and defense (23rd with 331.8 yards).

Arizona State vs Colorado Prediction

I liked Colorado and Washington before the season started and both have been good. Washington was one of my picks to make the College Football Playoffs and I am sticking with them. Colorado has been a bit of a disappointment because of their defense. I like the offense and they should keep racking up points but, the defense will give up quite a few in return. The 13 points is just to many. There is a good chance that Colorado will be up by as many as 20 at sometime but the defense is perfect for a late cover. I like Colorado to win but as long as the point spread is 10 or more I am taking Arizona State. There is a second bet on this game and that is on the over. The Sun Devils last two games had combined scores of (92 and 70). Colorado’s last two games (79 and 73). Both offenses are getting better and both defenses have been exposed. Look for this game to go over 70 points.
