Should you Bet on College football at an Online sportsbook and are a fan of the Sun Devils of Arizona State, who lost a big game to the Trojans of USC 42-14 at their home stadium, as the team struggled to deal with the Trojans QB C. Kessler who passed for 58 TD’s and 378 yards in that game. That came as a big letdown as previously in 4 games with USC the Sun Devils won 3. They actually played a very sloppy game as the turned the ball over in the 1st half on 4 occasions, of which USC turned the turnovers into 28 points.
The Sun Devils hope to comeback in this game against the undefeated Bruins of UCLA, and to do such they must improve defensively to stop opponents on their 3rd down, as in their last game with USC the permitted the Trojans to make 10 of their 3rd down attempts.
Last season Arizona was one of the best in the conference on not turning the ball over, but this year they have fumbled the ball on 13 occasions and lost the fumble on 7 of those occasions. In the ultimate 10 games the Arizona has been 7 and 3 against the spread.
For the fans of the Bruins of UCLA, you’re team comes into this Saturday match-up after bouncing another Arizona team the Wildcats 56-30. Thus the Bruins have managed to win their 1st 4 games by an average of 19.9 points in each of the 4 games.
The Bruins strong start is keyed by a very strong offense that to date this season per game have averaged some 37.9 points in each game, and that ranks at 32nd in the entire NCAA 1-A Division. In all 4 of the Bruins games, the star has been QB Rosen, as in their last game against the Wildcats of Arizona he passed for 2 TD’s completing 19 of his 28 pass attempts for some 285 yards in what was his 1st game against another Pac-12 rival team. In that game the QB’s main target was receiver J. Payton who had 7 receptions for 138 yards and scoring 1 TD.
The big difference in that game was with the Bruins defense that was very aggressive in the game. To date in the last 3 games against Arizona the Bruins have won all 3 with Head Coach Mora, and primarily did that by stopping the offense of the Wildcats.
In this game with the Sun Devils the Bruins will need to continue their intensity of defense to stay unbeaten, an UCLA defense that has only allowed opponents to an average of 18 point each game to date, and that ranks 29th in Division I-A. Remembering that the Sun Devils offense is averaging some 25 points each game this season. UCLA in their ultimate 6 home games with Arizona Stare are 5 and 1 against the spread.
