2021 Arizona State Sun Devils Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview
The Sun Devils posted a 2-2 SU/3-1 ATS mark in four games last season, and the highlight was easily a 70-7 rout of rival Arizona in the Territorial Cup game, costing Wildcats head coach Kevin Sumlin his job. The Sun Devils might only have been .500, but their loss at USC was by one point, and their loss to UCLA was by a mere touchdown. The close calls, and returnees, have experts, fans and alumni all thinking potential South Division title for Sparky heading into 2021.
It all starts with QB Jayden Daniels, who threw for 701 yards, five touchdowns and just one interception in his four games while also running for 223 yards and four scores. The Sun Devils have an embarrassment of riches at the skill positions, as RB Rachaad White is joined by freshmen Chip Trayanum, Daniyel Ngata and D.J. Taylor. That stable of backs will be running behind an offensive line with four starters returning.
WR Elijhah Badger looks to take a step forward as a potential star, and redshirt freshman WR LV Bunkley-Shelton could be a star in the making for Herm Edwards, too. X receiver Bryan Thompson is also a stud, as is WR Ricky Pearsall and Andre Johnson. Oh yeah, this team also has Chad Johnson Jr., who looks to make a name for himself.
On the other side of the line, Arizona State led the Pac-12 in scoring defense, albeit in just four games. DL Jermayne Lole is a potential star, and CBs Jack Jones and Chase Lucas have the makings of Pac-12 first-team members, if they're not there already. LB Eric Gentry is a true freshman who is added to an already decent mix, and LB Xavier Steele transfers in to give the Sun Devils even more depth. If there was one area Arizona State struggled, it was against the run, coughing up 183.2 yards per game on the ground in 2020. Of course, again, that was in just four games, so that could easily be corrected.
The Sun Devils could get off to a very, very quick start against FCS Southern Utah and UNLV of the Mountain West. The first real test will come Sept. 18 at BYU. The conference slate is very favorable, and they miss Oregon and California in crossover games, while getting USC at home. Trips to UCLA, Utah and Washington could be trouble spots, but this Sun Devils side is positioned for a big season.
At the least, this Arizona State side should push on the number at nine wins, and they have the potential for a 10-win season if they can win on the road. They did that last season, going 2-1 SU/3-0 ATS on the road in 2020. The lean here is to a 10-win campaign, and a possible South Division title.

Arizona State Odds to win 2021 Pac-12 Championship
The Sun Devils might miss Oregon on the regular season schedule, but there is a more than good chance they face the Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship Game. In fact, if all of their skill position players live up to the hype, this team could easily win the league. A chance to multiply your initial wager by four and a half times is too tough to pass up.
Arizona State Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff
Arizona State will be a very, very good team, capable of 10 wins, but they're not quite there as far as being considered for a spot among the nation's elite. The ceiling is as a Top 10 team, and potential Rose Bowl participant, but a CFP appearance is a stretch.
Arizona State 2021 Heisman Contenders & Odds
Jayden Daniels +2500
Daniels is a dual-threat option who should be a lot of fun to watch. He has the 'it' factor, and is worth a small-unit play for a possible Heisman. He has a ton of exciting skill position players around him, and a 10-win season and Pac-12 Championship could easily make him a finalist in New York in December. He is still a bit of a long-shot for the bronze trophy, but you could make worse investments.
