College Football Betting Odds:
Arizona State Sun Devils
The Sun Devils turned in a 7-5 record this season that saw them finish 2nd in the South Division of the Pac 12 conference. Ultimately Arizona State found themselves in this position thanks to the meager 5-4 record they posted in conference play. And although that wasn’t good enough to compete in the conference championship, it was plenty good enough to get them an invite into this year’s Las Vegas bowl. Pegged as the underdog, the Sun Devils have plenty to prove in this weekend’s matchup.
Unfortunately for the Sun Devils, they’re going up against a pretty good Fresno State team that has a massive statistical advantage over them. Right now Arizona State is averaging 30.8 points per game, which isn’t too far from the 34.9 that Fresno State is averaging. However, things are much more lopsided on defense, seeing as how the Bulldogs give up 13.7 while the Sun Devils allot 25.1.
Players to Watch: Manny Wilkins (2,896 passing yards, 19 TD, 4 INT), Eno Benjamin (1,524 rushing yards, 15 TD, 5.5 AVG), and N’Keal Harry (1,088 receiving yards, 9 TD, 73 REC).
Fresno State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs posted an 11-2 record this season that saw them win the West Division of the Mountain West Conference. Naturally this led to an invite to the conference championship that saw Fresno State pull one over Boise State 19-16. Now Fresno State looks to keep the good times rolling by taking apart a weaker opponent. The odds are pegging Fresno State as a favorite here but not by much, making them a great pick straight up this weekend. They have the better offense, a much better defense and bring a heap of momentum into this Saturday’s Las Vegas Bowl contest.
Players to Watch: Marcus McMaryion (3,453 passing yards, 25 TD, 3 INT), Ronnie Rivers (531 rushing yards, 8 TD, 4.9 AVG), and KeeSean Johnson (1,307 receiving yards, 8 TD, 93 REC).
