2014 Arizona State Sun Devils Season Win Total NCAA Football Picks

2013 Record: 10-4
2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 7.5*
2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Under'
The Sun Devils had a fantastic season in Todd Graham's second year at the helm, winning 10 regular season games and earning a spot in the Pac-12 title game. Unfortunately they did close the year with two upset losses and this season they welcome back just eight total starters.
Arizona State's turnover-producing defense will face almost a complete turnover this fall. They have just two starters back on that side of the ball and have a lot of rebuilding to do. The Sun Devils offense will remain productive because of veteran quarterback Taylor Kelly and because of Graham's proven system.
Arizona State had just four road games last year. They will have six this year. Beyond a trip to USC, none of the road games are against teams that are a lock for the Top 25. But ASU has traditionally struggled outside of Tempe and is just 21-29 straight up on the road the last 10 years.
I actually think this total is a shade high. I have losses to UCLA, USC and Stanford penciled in. And there are enough other tricky road games (at Washington the week after the Stanford game; a trip to Arizona to close the year) and competitive home games (Notre Dame, for example) where I think the Sun Devils will slip up. I think that 7-5 would be a strong year with just eight starters back. And even that would keep this win total 'under'.
I will call for either a 6-6 or 7-5 season for Arizona State. Either way, they are going 'under'.
