Arizona State University Football has an impressive coach with Herm Edwards and a talented team led by quarterback Jayden Daniels. They continue to earn their spot in bowl games season after season, but have yet to make it to the college playoffs.
ASU Football is a team that struggles in the competitive Pac-12 division, but is still a team worth wagering on. And with the launch of sports betting in Arizona this September, you will get a chance to bet on ASU Football this upcoming season.
Is It Legal To Bet On College Sports In Arizona?
Yes. As soon as Arizona sports betting launches on September 9, sports bettors in the state will be able to bet on college sports including ASU Football. As of now, the only limitation on betting on college sports is no prop bets.
All legalized sportsbooks in the state are expected to offer odds for ASU Football and all college football teams, with the option to place bets on its apps and at retail sportsbooks.
College football is a popular sport to bet on, and not every state that allows sports betting allows betting on college sports, so Arizona is in a favorable position for sports bettors.
Where Can You Bet On ASU Football?
With the anticipation of Arizona sports betting launching, a few sportsbooks have already made partnerships in the state. More sportsbooks such as BetMGM, PointsBet, and BetRivers are expected to join the party in Arizona.
Thanks to partnerships forming between sportsbooks and sports franchises and casinos, sports betting will be allowed on the following sportsbook apps:
- FanDuel (partnership with the Phoenix Suns)
- DraftKings (partnership with the PGA)
- Caesars Sportsbook (partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks)
- Bally’s Corporation (partnership with the Phoenix Mercury)
- WynnBET (partnership with the San Carlos Apache Tribe)
- Unibet (Kindreg Group) (partnership with the Fort Yuma Quechan Indian Tribe)
FanDuel partnered with the Phoenix Suns to open a retail sportsbook inside the Footprint Center. The sportsbook lounge is expected to be open daily and offer sports bettors a luxurious place to place bets, catch a Suns game, watch other sporting events on televisions, and enjoy food and drinks.
Next to the Footprint Center, Bally’s will open a retail sportsbook through its partnership with the Phoenix Mercury.
Caesars Sportsbook partnered with the Arizona Diamondbacks to open a sportsbook bar right next to Chase Field, home of the Diamondbacks. The sports bar will give sports bettors the chance to wager on games while enjoying food and drinks, right next to where the Diamondbacks play.
DraftKings partnered with the PGA to open a retail sportsbook on the 19th hole of TPC Scottsdale. The sportsbook will be open daily and offer sports bettors the chance to place bets while drinking and eating with an incredible view of the golf course.
WynnBET and the San Carlos Apache Tribe’s partnership is expected to include a retail sportsbook inside the tribe’s two casinos, the Apache Gold Casino Resort and the Apache Sky Casino.
The Fort Yuma Quechan Indian Tribe owns the Paradise Casino in Yuma, so a Unibet sportsbook is expected to open inside the casino.
How College Football Betting Odds Are Calculated
We all know that odds can change last minute due to many reasons such as injuries and even the weather.
College football odds are calculated just like pro football odds by using American odds, using plus (+) and minus (-). The plus is the amount you will win if you bet $100. The minus is how much you need to bet to win $100. The highest minus number is the team that is the favorite, and the team with the highest plus number is the underdog.
Let’s take a look at an example.
Arizona State Sun Devils -150
University of Arizona Wildcats +250
Since the Sun Devils are the favorites, you would need to bet $150 on them to win $100. But if you bet $100 on the underdogs, the Wildcats, you will win $250.
Since injuries and weather play a factor, always check the odds right before you place a bet, just in case they have changed.
What Kinds Of Bets Can Be Placed On ASU Football
The Arizona Sports Betting bill allows basic bets on college football with the exception of prop bets. Popular bets allowed on college sports includes moneyline bets, spread bets, totals bets, parlay bets, and futures bets.
Moneyline bets are also known as straight bets. This bet is simply when you pick who is going to win the game. The points don’t matter, just the winner. This is the most common bet on college football.
With a points spread bet, the score does matter. This is how it works, if you pick the team that is favored, they will need to win by the same amount or more that is listed by sportsbooks to receive a payout. For example, if the ASU Sun Devils are favorites at -3 to win the payout, they will need to win by at least three points or more.
If you end up picking the underdog team, they will need to either win the game OR lose within the amount listed by sportsbooks to receive a payout. For example, if the Arizona Wildcats are the underdog at +3, they will need to win the game or lose by fewer than three points.
Sportsbooks will list what they think will be the total number of points scored in the game. You can place a bet that the score will either end up above or below the number listed. These bets can be placed for the score at the end of each quarter, the score at the end of the first half, or the score at the end of the game.
Parlay bets are also very popular in college football. These bets include multiple picks, on at least 2 or more games. A parlay bet can be on the moneyline, points spread, or totals.
What Is A College Football Futures Bet
A futures bet is a bet on a game that is going to take place in the future, such as the Pac-12 Conference Championship. Common college futures bets include which team will win a conference championship, which teams will make the college playoffs, and which team will end up winning the college championship. Player futures bets are also common such as who will win the Heisman Trophy.
Prop Bets On ASU Football In Arizona
Even though Arizona allows bettors to place a bet on ASU Football and other college teams, prop bets are not allowed. Arizona does offer prop bets on professional sports, but has decided to ban prop bets on all college sports.
