Arizona State vs Duke Odds have Duke as +7.5 underdogs on the spread at BOVADA.LV
Sun Bowl Picks Analysis: Duke is an overachieving team that will keep things close until the Sun Devils superior offense pulls away. Arizona quarterback Taylor Kelly will dice up a Duke defense that ranks 70th in yards allowed. The Blue-Devils will be unable to generate pressure with their mediocre pass-rush and a Sun Devils offense that averages 37.0 points per game should go for 40+ here. Arizona State vs Duke Odds Over/Under is at 65.5 points
ESPN2 News Bottom Line: Arizona has the better talent on both sides of the football and have pass-rushers that will force turnover prone Duke QB Anthony Boone into mistakes. Duke plays excellent special teams, has a solid offensive line and is well-coached but against the Sun Devils their shortcomings in talent and speed will be their undoing. Play Arizona to cover the spread in a shootout.
