Arizona State at Utah expert predictions, odds, betting trends: Utes host Sun Devils for Pac-12 South supremacy

At 3-0 in the Pac-12 South, Arizona State is the early favorite to win its division. However, Utah is right there at 2-0 and host the Sun Devils on Saturday.

The Sun Devils beat Stanford 28-10 last week by owning the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. ASU picked up 255 of its 430 yards on the ground, averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Defensively, the Sun Devils held the Cardinal to just 13 (not a misprint) rushing yards. And while Stanford did pass for 356 yards, ASU intercepted Tanner McKee three times, returning one for a touchdown.

The Sun Devils opened as one-point favorites against Utah. This game is set to start at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The Utes had a rough September, losing to BYU and San Diego State before winning its first two games in conference play. Now they have a chance to make a statement against a ranked ASU team playing with momentum. The Utes had their most complete offensive show in a 42-26 win over Southern California, scoring a season-high 42 points and 486 yards. If Utah can perform close to that well again and its top-50 defense holds up against ASU, the Utes should have a chance.
