Arizona State Sun Devils: The Sun Devils (2-0 straight up and against the spread) have absolutely dominated their first two opponents at home, beating the line easily against Northern Arizona and Illinois. This under new head coach Todd Graham after the team dropped five in a row both SU and ATS to end last year. Arizona State routed the Illini 45-14 last week as 5½-point home favorites with quarterbacks Taylor Kelly and Michael Eubank combining for 318 passing yards and three touchdowns. The Sun Devils also ran the ball well with 192 rushing yards on 38 carries and Cameron Marshall, D.J. Foster and Michael Eubank each scoring a TD on the ground. The ‘over’ is 10-1 in their last 11 lined games dating back to last season, including their 56-24 loss to Boise State in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas.
Missouri Tigers: The Tigers (1-1 SU, 0-1 ATS) are coming off a crushing 41-20 home loss to Georgia last week in their SEC debut, getting blown out in the second half after leading 17-9 early in the third quarter. Missouri surrendered two touchdown passes and two TD runs in the last quarter-and-a-half in getting outscored 32-3 down the stretch. Mizzou won its season opener 62-10 over Southeastern Louisiana behind 121 yards and two scores from RB Kendial Lawrence and would be wise not to try to get into a scoring duel with Arizona State. The ‘over’ is 2-0 in the team’s last two lined games after the total went ‘under’ in three straight – all SU wins.
