TCU vs Arizona State Best Bets

TCU -6 (-110) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

TCU has some impressive results on their schedule, including wins against Texas, Kansas State, and Kansas. Arizona State does not have as good of a resume, but they do have a notable win against Arizona.

The Horned Frogs are the more battle-tested team here, led by a stifling defense that should cause problems for the Sun Devils. We’ll lay the six points in this spot.

Arizona State vs TCU: Under 141 Total Points (-110) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

We have two factors working towards the Under here. As we’ve mentioned, Arizona State’s 133rd-ranked offense could have some issues with TCU’s 20th-ranked defense.

Secondly, the Sun Devils are tied for 118th in pace. Playing at a slow pace against a tough defense is likely to keep this game below the number, especially with a relatively high bar at 141 points.

TCU vs Arizona State SGP (-125) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • TCU Moneyline (-255)
  • Arizona State: Under 70.5 Points (-180)

TCU vs Arizona State SGP

We’ll parlay TCU on the moneyline as an insurance play in case they win but fail to cover the spread. The Arizona State team total Under also looks good because it’s tough to see them scoring more than 70 points against this stout defense.
