The entire college football season is really starting to heat up, but that is particularly true in the Pac-12 Conference. There are still a handful of teams with a chance to win the conference title, and that will make the rest of the regular season extremely interesting.
The Arizona State Sun Devils will actually be in action on Friday night as they will host the Stanford Cardinal. There are four league games taking place in Week 6, and this has the potential to be one of the better ones.
Arizona will host the UCLA Bruins in the final Pac-12 Conference game of the weekend on Saturday night. The Wildcats are hoping to keep this game close, but that hasn’t been the case very often this season.
There are still a number of ways to bet on all of the Pac-12 Conference games this weekend, and the sports betting industry continues to heat up in Arizona. You might even be able to get some boosted odds or promotions on the Pac-12 games featuring league teams.
Arizona State Is Surging
Arizona State comes into Friday night with an overall record of 4-1, and the Sun Devils are 13-point favorites over the Stanford Cardinal. Stanford has gone just 3-2 on the year, but they do have the best victory secured by any conference team.
The Sun Devils have been getting the job done on defense this season, allowing just 17 points per game. Arizona State will have to be solid in the secondary as Stanford will be willing to take some shots down the field.
Quarterback Jayden Daniels has thrown for 1,094 yards and four touchdowns this season, but the Sun Devils need more production. Stanford just knocked off a highly-ranked Oregon team, and they are coming to Tempe with plenty of momentum.
Wildcats Continue to Struggle
Arizona was not expected to be a Pac-12 title contender this season, and it has played out that way on the field as well. The Wildcats are still looking for their first win of the season, and they are 16.0 point underdogs against UCLA on Saturday night.
The first step for Arizona is finding a way to be more competitive as they are getting outscored by 14 points per game. UCLA comes into this matchup with a record of 3-2, but they have had some interesting results up to this point.
Playing at home should give Arizona a bit of an advantage in this game, but they are going to have to play much better than they have.
Odds to Win Pac-12 Conference
Arizona State is now the betting favorite to win the Pac-12 Conference with odds set at +175. Oregon ascended to the top of the list with a win over Ohio State, but the loss to Stanford affected the odds. The Ducks are now right behind the Sun Devils at +185.
It should not come as a surprise to see Arizona with odds as long as +100000 to win the Pac-12 Conference. The Wildcats are going to be eliminated from contention soon unless they find a way to turn things around.
