2022 Sun Devils Football Schedule: A Preseason Guide to Arizona Sports Betting

Preseason Arizona Sports Betting Guide: Breaking Down the 2022 Sun Devils Football Schedule
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The upcoming season will mark Herm Edwards’ fifth year as head coach at Arizona State, with the Sun Devils hoping to secure yet another bowl game appearance.

Edwards’ team had a record of 8-5 last year and reached as high as No. 18 in the Associated Press poll. Unfortunately, losses to Utah (35-21), Washington State (34-21), and Oregon State (24-10) prevented them from finishing the season ranked.

The former NFL coach’s future in Tempe is in question, with an NCAA investigation and coaching departures making headlines during the off-season.

The coaching staff underwent multiple changes, with wide receivers coach Prentice Gill and secondary coach Chris Hawkins being fired, and offensive coordinator Zak Hill and tight ends coach Adam Breneman resigning in the aftermath of ASU’s NCAA investigation.

The investigation is centered on whether Edwards and former defensive coordinator/associate head coach Antonio Pierce violated NCAA rules by hosting recruits on campus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sun Devils saw a major shakeup in their roster as 16 players from last season entered the transfer portal. One notable departure was Jayden Daniels, the three-year starting quarterback, who decided to transfer to LSU.

Arizona sportsbooks have noticed that the Sun Devils are predicted to have Pac-12 title odds that fall in the lower half of the conference.

ASU’s 2022 schedule appears to be in their favor, beginning with non-conference games against Northern Arizona, Oklahoma State away, and Eastern Michigan at home.

If you are betting on college football in Arizona, here is a rundown of the Sun Devils’ 2022 schedule.

What is noteworthy on ASU’s schedule?

The Sun Devils will kick off their season by facing in-state rival Northern Arizona for the first time in six years, before taking on Oklahoma State in their first-ever meeting.

In their most recent game in 2016, the Sun Devils secured a dominant 44-13 victory over the Lumberjacks, marking their sixth matchup between 2003 and 2016. These games were the first meetings between the teams since 1950.

The Sun Devils face a challenging nine-game conference schedule, beginning with back-to-back home games against Utah and Washington before hitting the road to face USC.

ASU has a record of two losses in their last three games and three losses in their last five games against the Trojans, despite a 31-16 victory over them last year. Furthermore, ASU has experienced back-to-back losses to the Utes by an average of 14.5 points.

Despite struggling against the spread in games against USC (12-13 since 1997) and Utah (4-5-1 since 2011), the Sun Devils have an impressive 15-5 record ATS when facing Washington since 1995.

The Sun Devils are currently on their longest winning streak against a Pac-12 opponent, with their dominance over the Wildcats continuing.

ASU has won five straight games against their in-state rivals, with three of those victories coming by double-digit margins. During this winning streak, the Sun Devils have a 3-2 record Against The Spread and are 12-10 Against The Spread when playing Arizona since 2000.

As of now, the Sun Devils, under Edwards’ leadership, do not have a winning streak against any of the eight Pac-12 teams they are set to face in 2022.

A must-see ASU Sun Devils game in 2022

Determining the crucial game that will define Edwards’ fifth season is difficult, but it is prudent to start by looking at the non-conference matchups.

On September 10th, the ASU team will head to Stillwater to face the Cowboys, who had a strong 12-2 season. This exciting game, scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Arizona time, is sure to be a must-see event, especially for Arizona betting apps. Mike Gundy and his team will be focused on shattering the Sun Devils’ aspirations.

Oklahoma State has made it to a bowl game every year since 2005 with Gundy at the helm. Caesars Sportsbook Arizona ranks them as the third favorite to win the Big 12 at +400, behind Texas (+175) and Oklahoma (+200).

Be sure to tune in for ASU’s first Pac-12 game in Tempe against Utah, a team that made their first trip to the Rose Bowl last year.

Caesars Sportsbook has the Utes and USC both listed at +200 for the top spot on the Pac-12 championship odds board. The Sun Devils are set to take on USC in their second Pac-12 game of the season.

ASU’s chances of securing a spot in the Pac-12 championship game for the first time in nearly a decade will greatly improve if they are able to navigate through that challenging stretch without a loss.

Otherwise, the Sun Devils could be at risk of a major setback as a result of the extensive changes in the roster and coaching staff that occurred during the offseason.
