Taking a look at the odds, Oklahoma State is the current favorite at -175. Oklahoma State is coming off a 27-13 win against C Arkansas. However, Arizona State is also 1-0 fresh off of a win against Southern Utah. ASU currently is at +145 to win the game outright.

In Arizona State’s win last week they really came together as a unit. The team went through major adversity, having to pause the game due to a storm in Tempe AZ. In the press conference after the game there was clear leadership backing ASU’s quterback Jaden Rashada’s shaky second half. That’s a team I’d put my money on, personally.

Taking a look in on the inside

I spoke with Arizona State insider Brendan Mau (@brendan_mau via “X”) and he showed some love for the Arizona State +3.5 spread line. Arizona State money line is worth the sprinkle in my opinion, but, I’ll take the insiders advice. What I would do is stake both bets, but a sprinkle on the money line for the sweat, and hammer the spread for safety. Neither team has a clear advantage over the other. Looking at Arizona States chemistry they seem to have, I think they can piece together a win over OKST.

Brendan also had some really good information as to why we should go with ASU and fade OKST. Brendan told me, Oklahoma State doesn’t even have a quarterback. For them to be favored, with no QB, on the road, doesn’t seem right Especially after seeing the confidence Arizona State has in Rashada, ASU’s offense might come out better this week than the last.

As always, let’s go win some money. All of the lines I use can be found on DraftKings.
