Sonoran Hot Reads: Arizona three point underdogs to ASU

You gonna put some money down on the Wildcats?

NCAA Football: Arizona at Arizona State Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Both the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils aren’t particularly good at football this year (second worst T-Cup combined record since 1958), so it’s not a huge surprise that the betting line is fairly close. In this roundup of all the Rivalry Week lines, Arizona is a 3-point underdog at home for Friday night. TCU/Texas is the only P5 Conference game that is closer, and I think it’s interesting that Oregon and Oregon State is the exact same 3-point line. What a weird year
