College Football Betting Preview: Arizona Wildcats vs. Stanford Cardinal
September 23, 2023
Neither Arizona nor Stanford looks like they are going to make a lot of noise in the Pac-12 this season despite Arizona’s 2-1 record to start the season both wins have come against bottom-tier teams in college football while Stanford’s only win came against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and is coming off a loss against an FCS team. Will the Arizona Wildcats win their Pac-12 season opener on the road or will the Cardinals improve to .500 on the year? Let’s take a closer look at how these teams are faring this season.
The Arizona Wildcats enter this game with a record of 2-1 following a 31-10 win at home against the UTEP Miners while covering the 18-point spread as a home favorite in week 3 of the college football season. Arizona scored 31 points while compiling 544 total yards offensively which included 300 passing yards and 244 rushing yards while allowing 10 points and 332 total yards defensively which included 283 passing yards and 49 rushing yards. Jayden de Laura led the team in passing, completing 23 of 29 attempts for 285 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 33 yards. Michael Wiley led the team in rushing with 17 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown while adding one reception for 15 yards. Tetairoa McMillan led the team in receiving, catching six of eight targets for 89 yards and a touchdown.
Stanford enters this game with a record of 1-2 following a 23-30 loss at home against the Sacramento State Hornets while failing to cover the 7-point spread as a home favorite in week 3 of the college football season. The Cardinals scored 23 points while compiling 387 total yards offensively which included 207 passing yards and 180 rushing yards while allowing 30 points and 448 total yards defensively which included 279 passing yards and 169 rushing yards. Justin Lamson led the team in passing, completing 7 of 17 attempts for 138 yards and an interception. E.J. Smith led the team in rushing with nine carries for 71 yards while adding a reception for 22 yards. Elic Ayomanor led the team in receiving, catching all four targets for 89 yards and a touchdown.

Stanford has won eight of the last ten including the previous six matchups in a row while going 7-3 ATS in the last ten and 3-0 ATS in the last three games in the series.
