- Sacramento State Hornets vs. Arizona State Sun Devils
The Sacramento State Hornets compete in the Big Sky Conference, so it’s no wonder they are massive underdogs against the member of the Pac-12 South, Arizona State Sun Devils. Although the Hornets opened with a 77-19 victory over Southern Oregon, they will have a mountain to climb at Sun Devil Stadium.
Arizona State defeated Kent State 30-7 in Week 1, and freshman Jayden Daniels had an impressive debut. Daniels tossed for 284 yards and a couple of touchdowns while adding another TD on his own. Eno Benjamin had 22 carries for 102 yards, while Brandon Aiyuk had four receptions for 140 yards and a TD.
The Sun Devils are undoubtedly a better team than the Hornets who lost seven straight games before a victory over Southern Oregon. The bookies expect to see a high-scoring affair, setting the line at 63.5 points. Hereof, the hosts should be able to cover a huge spread.
The Sun Devils are just 1-4 ATS in their last five outings. On the other hand, they are 8-4 ATS in the last 12 showings at home. Hereof, the clash against the Hornets seems like a nice opportunity for another convincing victory at home. Go with the hosts to cover.
- Arizona State Sun Devils -36.0 at -110
