We hate doing what seems to be the relatively square thing to do, but we are going to take the plunge here on one of the squarest plays of the day as the Cardinal take on the Sun Devils. Many think that the Pac-12 has become crowded this year, as teams like Arizona State, Washington, and UCLA have won some pretty darn big out of conference games. And perhaps there is some logic to that, especially knowing that a lot of these wins have come against Top 25 foes that were supposed to be better than the teams out of the Pac-12. However, when push comes to shove, this is still a two-team race as we see it. The Cardinal and the Oregon Ducks are head and shoulders above the rest of the pack, and we think that Stanford is going to prove it on Saturday night in front of the national spotlight.
Stanford hasn’t covered either of its first two games of the year, but this isn’t a team that is going to be covering a lot of huge numbers. This though, is a much more reasonable number. QB Taylor Kelly and the Sun Devils were lucky to get away with an SU victory as huge favorites last week against a potentially quite bad Wisconsin Badgers outfit, and now they have to go on the road where they were blasted by 19 points the last time that these two met on this field. We have to think that the Cardinal can figure out how to win this game by just a touchdown or more. It’s a square look game once again, but even squares get some of these games right. We just hate the matchup for what seems to be a far too overrated Arizona State outfit.
