Arizona State has been one of the worst teams in the Pac-12 this season, however, they have dominated in the series against Washington winning eight of the last ten and two of the last three meetings. I don’t expect them to win this game, however, they have also been the better team at covering the spread in the series going 8-2 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three matchups. I look for that trend to continue which is why I am taking the points while the Arizona State Sun Devils in week 8 of the college football season.
