ASU opened between 2- and 3-point favorites, AND the line has pretty much bounced between 2 and 2.5 all week, the latter being the more common number as of today.
We view this as moderately favorable for taking UCLA and would not be surprised if the line moves toward favoring UCLA by mid-morning Saturday as the last minute big money starts to pour in.
The teams are closely matched. ASU is on a five game winning streak, but some of those wins were shaky. UCLA has only lost the two games it was expected to lose to and has won by double digits in every other game.
We believe these odds are the best you will get between now and game time. Although we don’t feel as strongly as in past predictions, we are pulling the trigger on UCLA with the home field advantage and the 2.5 points on this one.
