Stanford vs Arizona State Betting Odds

The road-weary Cardinal opened as 6.5-point favorites over the visiting Sun Devils, who are coming off a last-second victory over Wisconsin.

Stanford traveled to the East Coast and was sluggish in a win over Army.

Stanford is 5-1 ATS in six recent home games against the Sun Devils. They also won last season’s close 17-13 battle in Tempe. Four of the last five meetings have stayed under the total.

Arizona State is loaded with talent this season, coach Todd Graham’s second. But Stanford is considered a serious national-title threat.

The Cardinal have covered the spread in 14 of their last 20 Pac-12 games.

NFL Odds: Week 3 Injury Roundup

Last week the Dallas Cowboys felt the wrath of the new-look, new-attitude Kansas City Chiefs defense. The Pokes dropped to 1-1, and will host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday with hopes of having key members on both sides of the ball on the field. Receiver Dez Bryant insists he will play against St. Louis after battling back spasms, while defensive end Anthony Spencer is dealing with soreness in his repaired left knee.


Public on underdog Falcons Sunday

Bettors at one online sportsbook evidently are not worried about a rash of injuries that have the Atlanta Falcons shorthanded for their game at the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Kevin Bradley, the Bovada sportsbook manager, told that the public was all over the underdog Falcons, one of three games receiving “completely one-sided” action heading into the weekend.

NFL Betting: Week 3 Line Moves

The giant pointspread highlighting this week’s NFL betting card has shrunk.


Notre Dame Michigan State odds, pick

The Fighting Irish opened as 6-point favorites over the visiting Spartans, who finally found some offense in last week’s rout of Youngstown State.

But they host a team that has clobbered them at home over the years, with the Spartans 7-1 ATS since 1997.

Michigan State scored just one offensive touchdown in opening wins over Western Michigan and South Florida, but exploded for 55 points against Youngstown State. Sophomore QB Connor Cook threw four touchdowns in the win and will need to have another big game against a Notre Dame defense that held the Spartans to three points last season.

The Irish bounced back from a loss at Michigan by coming from behind for a road win at Purdue on Saturday. But it was not an impressive performance by Notre Dame.

The Irish have won the last two meetings against Michigan State and has covered the spread in the last three games against the Spartans.
