Sun Devils big favorites, Wildcats underdogs in Saturday night’s action
Sportsbooks see a big win and a tight loss coming for Arizona’s Pac-12 teams Saturday night.
Arizona State — fresh off a 34-17 road loss to Oklahoma State — is expected to bounce back against mid-major program Eastern Michigan at Sun Devil Stadium. FanDuel Sportsbook has the line at Sun Devils -20.5 at -110 odds.
ASU won its first game of the year 40-3 at home against Northern Arizona.
Eastern Michigan also enters the matchup at 1-1. The Eagles beat Eastern Kentucky in Week 1 before falling to Louisiana 49-21 last week.
The Sun Devils’ moneyline is set at -1400, while EMU’s is at +800.
The point total over-under is set at 56.5 points with -110 odds.
The Wildcats, meanwhile, get the tougher assignment of 2-0 North Dakota State, the winners of nine of the past 11 FCS national titles.
Arizona is a 2.5-point underdog at home with +102 odds of covering the spread. The Bison have -124 odds to cover and a moneyline of -154. Arizona’s moneyline is +205.
The Wildcats got an AP top 25 vote after blowing out San Diego State 38-20 on the road in Week 1, but they didn’t have the same success last week in a 39-17 loss to Mississippi State in Tucson.
There are fewer points expected to be scored in Tucson than Tempe, as the over-under is set for 48.5.
Both games have late kickoffs at 8 p.m.
ASU will play on Pac-12 Network while Arizona gets the FS1 slot.
