It’s another week of Arizona State football and the Sun Devils are once again heavy favorites on their home turf according to the oddsmakers.

ASU is set as a 34.5-point favorite against UNLV according to FanDuel SportsBook when the team’s meet in Tempe Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.

As of Friday, the Rebels are favored to keep the game within that margin (-114) against the Sun Devils (-106). With ASU being heavily favored on the spread, that means they are a massive favorite on the moneyline.

Think UNLV can come into town and pull off the big upset? That would earn you a nice chunk of change with the Rebels odds to win the game at +3000, meaning a $100 bet would net you $3000.

The Sun Devils face the Rebels following a win in Week 1 of the college football season over Southern Utah, 41-14. However, they did bettors no favors by not covering the 45.5-point spread in their debut. As for the UNLV, they lost their season opener in overtime against Eastern Washington, 35-33 as 1.5-point underdogs, coming just short of covering the spread.

In their last six games, ASU is 4-2 against the spread according to OddsShark. However, the Sun Devils have a 1-7 record in their last eight games against Mountain West conference teams, who the Rebels are a member of.
