Arizona State was listed as a three-point favorite against Oregon State, according to the sportsbook.

Tight ends Jalin Conyers and Curtis Hodges, offensive lineman Henry Hattis, defensive backs Evan Fields and Willie Hart and receiver Andre Johnson are questionable. Running back Jackson He, receiver Johnny Wilson and tight end Jake Ray are out. Defensive lineman Jermayne Lole is out for the season. Hodges, Johnson and Wilson are among seven Arizona State players with at least 10 catches this season.
Betting on the Game
There could be some disruptive plays by the Arizona State defense. Arizona has given up more sacks and tackles for loss than any other Pac-12 team.

Stanley Berryhill’s 75 catches are the most for an Arizona player since Austin Hill’s 81 in 2012.
Arizona has lost its last 10 road games and has dropped five of the last six games against Arizona State.
The total has gone over in seven of Arizona State’s last nine games against Arizona.
The Sun Devils are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games.
