Pete Fiutak writes: “Both teams are in the midst of awful seasons. Colorado is a little bit worse. The Sun Devils have major problems against teams that can throw. Colorado will come up with at least 200 yards. The Buffaloes have major problems against teams that can run. Arizona State will come up with at least 150 yards. It’ll be a good, competitive game with Colorado putting up a good fight for a half, but the Arizona State offense will start to be more and more effective as the game goes on.”
Matt Rooney writes: “Our pick to win this contest is Arizona State, and we predict that Colorado will cover the spread (Arizona State -13). Finally, we see the scoring in this one going over the posted total of 46.5 points.”

It writes: “I’m leaning toward Arizona State, but probably staying away from this one. The Sun Devils fell apart after halftime in their loss versus Stanford over the weekend, giving up 398 total yards and 28 first downs. Arizona State was a tepid 4-of-13 on third downs and had eight penalties in the loss.”
It writes: “The Colorado Buffaloes have just one win on the season covering the spread in also just one game. Arizona State won this meeting last season convincingly and have the better team once again. Colorado is averaging less than two touchdowns scored per game which is a recipe for disaster.”
