College Football Betting Odds:
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State kicked off the season with a narrow 38-31 win over Utah State. The Spartans had a masterful outing on offense, amassing 452 total yards on the day. However, they did struggle to contain their opponent as the Aggies amassed 344 total yards. Particularly, the Spartans’ pass defense gave up a ton of yardage, 319 to be exact. Unfortunately for the Spartans, they’ll be going up against another capable passing game this weekend. The Sun Devils Manny Wilkins opened the season up with a beautiful performance; over 200 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and zero interceptions. With that in mind, it’s clear Michigan State’s Brian Lewerke will have to be on point this weekend. By the looks of it, the college football betting odds are taking Lewerke over Wilkins.
Players to Watch: Brian Lewerke (287 passing yards, 2 TD, 1 INT), LJ Scott (84 rushing yards, 0 TD, 3.7 AVG), and Cody White (70 receiving yards, 1 TD, 5 REC).
Arizona State Sun Devils
The Sun Devils kicked in the door on the 2018 NCAA football season with a dominant 49-7 pummeling of the UTSA Roadrunners. It was the offense that paved the way to a victory as they racked up a total of 503 yards on the day. Similarly, the defense wasn’t half bad on the day holding their opponent to just 220 yards. Most impressively was the fact that Arizona State held the Roadrunners to just 2 rushing yards on the day. We’ll find out this weekend if the Sun Devils run defense is something special or if it just got to beat up on a weaker opponent. Since the Spartans racked up 165 rushing yards in their debut, they’ll be a solid test of Arizona State.
Players to Watch: Manny Wilkins (237 passing yards, 4 TD, 0 INT), Eno Benjamin (131 rushing yards, 1 TD, 8.2 AVG), and N’Keal Harry (140 receiving yards, 2 TD, 6 REC).
