Sun Devils are heavily favored for Friday’s game.

According to three prominent Arizona sports betting apps, the Sun Devils are expected to secure a comfortable victory in their home game on Friday night.

BetMGM Arizona and FanDuel Arizona both have ASU as the favorite by 11.5 points over Stanford, while DraftKings Arizona has the Sun Devils at -11.

Arizona State has covered the spread in two out of four games this season, beating the spread against the Buffaloes (-14) and Bruins (+3), but failing to cover against BYU (-3) and UNLV (-35) for Arizona bettors.

ASU’s well-rounded offense is a game-changer.

ASU presents a strong offensive danger by effectively attacking defenses through both running and passing plays.

Junior QB Jayden Daniels has demonstrated his versatility by averaging 218.8 passing yards per game this season, while also rushing for 120 yards and scoring two touchdowns in the team’s last two games, contributing to the team’s success.

Zak Hill, offensive coordinator at ASU, has effectively integrated his dual threat offensive strategies from Boise State into the team’s gameplay this season. The trio of Rachaad White, Daniyel Ngata, and DeaMonte Trayanum has bolstered the Sun Devils’ backfield with impressive rushing yards and touchdowns.

The trio, along with Daniels, have ignited ASU’s offense in their wins over Colorado and UCLA, propelling the Sun Devils towards their goal of reaching the Rose Bowl.

Scouting the Stanford Cardinal team

The Cardinal team in America has been inconsistent, securing impressive victories while also suffering surprising defeats to Kansas State and UCLA.

Last week, Stanford’s head coach David Shaw devised a strong game strategy that resulted in a 31-24 overtime win against the then-third-ranked Oregon. Nevertheless, the Cardinal faced difficulties in their season opener, managing to score only seven points in a defeat to Kansas State.

The Cardinal defense is giving up an average of 403.8 yards per game, while the offense is only managing to gain 348.8 yards per game. Nevertheless, Stanford’s sophomore quarterback Tanner McKee and junior wide receiver Elijah Higgins create a formidable QB-WR partnership.

This season, McKee has thrown 11 touchdowns on 138 pass attempts and has not thrown any interceptions.

Over the past four games, the second-year quarterback for the Cardinal has been consistently throwing for two or more touchdowns, showing improvement after a disappointing start in the team’s first game against Kansas State where he only threw for 118 yards and one touchdown.

Higgins has excelled with 22 receptions for 273 yards and three touchdowns, leading the team in receiving.

The Sun Devils’ defense will face a tough challenge on Friday night as they aim to secure their first win against the Cardinal since October 18, 2014.
