Sportsbooks do not see Arizona and Arizona State competing in particularly close games Saturday evening.
The Wildcats host 0-4 Colorado and are 17.5-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook. The Sun Devils, meanwhile, visit No. 6 USC in Los Angeles and are 25.5-point underdogs.
Arizona is fresh off a 49-31 loss to California to fall to 2-2. It has -105 odds to cover against the reeling Buffaloes, a team that has been outscored 173-47 this season.
The Wildcats’ money line is set at -880, while CU’s is at +580.
The over-under point total is 57.5, which has been eclipsed in each of Arizona’s first four games.
The Sun Devils have a tall order as they look to snap a three-game skid. They fell 34-13 to No. 12 Utah in Tempe last weekend in Shaun Aguano’s debut as interim head coach.
The Trojans squeaked out a 17-14 win over Oregon State in Corvallis in Week 4.
ASU has -110 odds to cover a mammoth spread with a money line of +1400. A $10 bet on the Sun Devils to upset USC would net $140.
The over-under is 62.5 points.
USC has won five of seven matchups against ASU, but the Sun Devils were victorious at home last season.
Both teams have new head coaches and quarterbacks this time around, as ASU will get its first crack at the Lincoln Riley-led Trojans.
Arizona-Colorado kicks off at 6:30 p.m., while ASU and USC face off at 7:30 p.m.
