|Arizona State -33||UNLV +33||55|
The Arizona State Sun Devils did what it had to for a season-opening win over Southern Utah in Week 1, but were unable to cover a massive number for bettors.
Another huge spread awaits in Week 2.
The Sun Devils, coming off a 41-14 win as 44.5-point favorites, opened as 33-point favorites at home against UNLV according to odds posted at DraftKings. The total is 55.
There wasn’t much to Arizona State’s win over Southern Utah in what became a glorified scrimmage. Heisman Trophy candidate Jayden Daniels was 10-of-12 passing for 132 yards with another 40 yards on the ground on six carries. The quarterback was limited in the game due to cramps.
Trenton Bourguet replaced him, throwing for 38 yards on 3-of-5 passing.
As a team, the Sun Devils rushed 40 times for 222 yards, a 5.6 yards per carry average. The opportunities were spread out as seven different players carried the ball. In the passing game, eight receivers caught at least one pass with LV Bunkley-Shelton leading the team with three receptions.
Daniels should be good to go this week with what oddsmakers believe should be nothing more than another tuneup before traveling to BYU in Week 3 and hosting Colorado in Week 4. A 4-0 start would create plenty of hype heaving into a Week 5 clash on the road against UCLA.
UNLV dropped its season-opener against Eastern Washington in 2OT, 35-33. Doug Brumfield took the majority of snaps at quarterback for the Rebels, throwing for 117 yards on 5-of-12 passing and running seven times for 27 yards. Ohio State transfer Tate Martell did not play as Justin Rogers was the other quarterback to get snaps, completing 7-of-11 throws for 23 yards.
If head coach Herm Edwards wanted to see more from his top players, a visit from UNLV could help. The Rebels gave up 374 yards through the air to the Eagles, although the defense did intercept quarterback Eric Barriere twice. ‘
Kick-off is scheduled for 10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
