NCAAF Games of the Year: Line could shrink for ASU-Stanford

Jun 14, 2013 |
Odds are out for the biggest games of the college football season. Covers Expert Jesse Schule gives you his insight into some of the marquee matchups and predicts where the odds could move before kickoff.

Saturday September 21 - Arizona State Sun Devils at Stanford Cardinal (-10)

Past History: Arizona State is 3-2 SU, 3-1-1 ATS since 2006.

Early look at Arizona State:
The Sun Devils appear to be a team on the rise in the Pac-12 and expectations are high in Todd Graham's second season as coach. Quarterback Taylor Kelly has all the skills, but it's not certain if he will have enough talent around him at the wide receiver position.

Early look at Stanford:
The Cardinal have eight starters returning on a defense that was one of the toughest in the country last year and we can expect them to be solid on the defensive side of the ball again in 2013. Kevin Hogan will take over the reigns from Josh Nunes, who started under center at the beginning of last year. It was Hogan, though, that led them to a victory over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.

Where this line will move: The Sun Devils play Wisconsin in Arizona in Week 2 and if they can defeat the Badgers, money should come in on Arizona State dropping the line down to single digits.
