While the Arizona State Sun Devils finished the 2021 season with a respectable 8-5 record, the offseason has been far less kind to the program. Fourteen scholarship players left for the transfer portal, including starting quarterback Jayden Daniels, two of their leading wide receivers, and two defensive starters.
Compounding the transfer portal losses is the small 2022 recruiting class, consisting of just nine incoming commits. While Arizona State also added players from the transfer portal, there are certainly more questions than answers as we sit here today.
Although the top Arizona sportsbooks aren’t looking at the Sun Devils’ 2022 season in a favorable light, sports bettors are sure to be placing wagers on the Arizona State football team once the season kicks off. Here’s everything you need to know about betting on ASU football.
2022 ASU Football Odds

|BetMGM||Over 5.5 (-145)|
Under 5.5 (+120)

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 football include 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.
