Pac-12 play in Arizona begins Saturday as the Sun Devils host No. 13 Utah in Tempe and the Wildcats take on California in Berkeley.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the two Arizona teams entering Week 4 as underdogs, with Arizona at +3.5 and ASU at +16.5.

ASU will play its first game under interim head coach Shaun Aguano after Herm Edwards and the program parted ways last weekend.

The Sun Devils — after a devastating 30-21 loss to Eastern Michigan at home last week — face a Utah squad that won its previous two games by a combined score of 108-14.

ASU has -110 odds to cover and a money line at +520.

The over-under mark is at 54.5, but the over at -105 has lower odds than the under at -115.

Utah won its last two games against Edwards’ Sun Devils, but there is mystery surrounding this game regarding how ASU will come out under Aguano.

Arizona bounced back last week with a 31-28 victory over North Dakota State in Tucson. The Wildcats and Golden Bears are both 2-1 after Cal gave Notre Dame a scare in a 24-17 loss last week.

Head coach Jedd Fisch’s improved squad has -105 odds to cover with a money line at +146. Cal’s money line is -178.

The over-under is set at 50.5 points with -110 odds. Arizona’s first three games all eclipsed that mark, while none of Cal’s performances have done so.

The Wildcats-Golden Bears game kicks off first at 2:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Network.

ASU plays at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.

You can tune in to the Sun Devils on ESPN 620 AM or 98.7 FM HD-2.
