College Football Betting at Get That Bet — Arizona State Ready to Go with Either QB Against Stanford

The best way to describe Arizona State quarterback Taylor Kelly’s status for Saturday night’s game against Stanford is that he is questionable, but if it is determined that he is healthy enough to play, he is going to be the starter.

Kelly, who has sat out the last couple of games with an injured foot, is generally regarded as one of the top QB’s in the Pac-12, and led ASU into the conference title game. Of course, that was not such a successful excursion, as they lost to this Stanford team by a 38-14 score. Well, maybe it wasn’t the same Stanford team they will face in college football betting action at 10:30 PM ET at Tempe, but we will explain in a moment.

If Kelly can’t go, coach Todd Graham is confident that he can turn to Mike Bercovici to get the job done. The junior has made two starts, passing for 488 yards against UCLA and 510 yards against USC. And naturally, the highlight for him thus far was that Hail Mary touchdown pass that left the Trojans incredibly disappointed in a 38-34 Sun Devil win as a double-digit underdog against the football pointspread.

In the college football betting odds that have been posted at Get That Bet (, ASU is getting some points at home:

Stanford Cardinal -3.5
Arizona State Sun Devils +3.5

Over 54 Points -110
Under 54 Points -110

These teams played twice last year. In the regular season meeting, Stanford won a 42-28 verdict at home, and held ASU to 50 net rushing yards. Then they had to meet once again, this time in the Pac-12 championship game. Stanford, which was actually getting 3.5 points in the football odds at Sun Devil Stadium, was even more decisive about it, easing to a 38-14 victory that sent them to the Rose Bowl. In each of the two encounters, Stanford ran for 240 yards.

The general consensus among college football betting observers is that this is a different Stanford squad in the respect that they are not as physical as last year. Get That Bet customers can see, for example, that the Cardinal is ranked just 82nd nationwide in rushing offense. So they may not be able to play “smashmouth” in the trenches, though that is clearly what cerebral head coach David Shaw would like to do. Quarterback Kevin Hogan is experienced and has proven himself to be a winner, and he has perhaps the best all-around weapon on the field in Ty Montgomery. But that hasn’t helped this team score in the red zone, where it has been lousy.

And whether it is Kelly or Bercovici under center, the ASU quarterback will be throwing to a genuine pro prospect in Jaelen Strong, a 6’3″ target who has averaged 15 yards on his 41 catches. But the Sun Devils will be careful, because they know that they will be lining up against a team that is ranked fifth in the nation in pass efficiency defense.
