Under is 8-2 in Sun Devils last 10 Friday games.
Over is 4-1 in Sun Devils last 5 games following a S.U. win.
My Prediction: Both of these teams are breaking in new starting quarterbacks. James Franklin of Missouri is a multi-threat type who will probably end up being the Tigers leading rusher by season’s end. He has all of his receivers back from last year and should do well. Brock Osweiler is the new man in Tempe. He was pretty good last week, but the Sun Devils were also playing UC Davis. I like Missouri’s defense to slow down Arizona State’s offensive attack enough to keep the game close.
