NCAA Football Betting Odds:
Fresno State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs finished the season with an 11-2 record that ranks them 1st in the West Division of the Mountain West conference. Naturally, this earned Fresno State an invite to the Mountain West conference championships. There they would be pegged against No. 22 Boise State. In what turned out to be a snowy matchup, Fresno State managed to pull off a 19-16 win over their conference rivals. Now the Bulldogs look to finish the season on a high note by taking care of Arizona State. The NCAA football betting odds are pegging Fresno State as a favorite here but not by much. All in all the Bulldogs come in with the better defense but will be facing a capable offense in Arizona State.
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).
Arizona State Sun Devils
The Sun Devils finished the season with a 7-5 record to finish 2nd overall in the South Division of the Pac-12. Naturally, this means that Arizona State was not invited to the conference championship. Nevertheless, the program still looks to finish the year on a high note by upsetting Fresno State. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Arizona State is a bit of a disadvantage here. Although they’re scoring 30.8 per game, that still pales in comparison to the 34.9 that Fresno State is averaging. Similarly the Bulldogs also take the advantage on defense. Right now the Bulldogs are giving up a slim 13.7 while Arizona State allots 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).
