    Considering this is a Saturday slate, there will be a lot of players available. It’s tough to find value with players like Buffs’ QB Shedeur Sanders in a slate loaded with players who are less expensive than he is and who could put up similar numbers.

    The key here is finding value, and ColoradoTE Michael Harrison is that kind of player. Less or equal money than every other top target for the Buffaloes, Harrison has value and has produced over the last three weeks with at least three receptions and a touchdown in each game.

    The other interesting play here is ASU RB Cameron Skattebo. The Sacramento State transfer is the catalyst for this offense and has scored seven total touchdowns with only the Fresno State shutout where he didn’t find the endzone. It’s also the only game where he recorded less than 15 touches. Skattebo will have opportunities to make plays, and those could become fruitful against a porous Colorado front.

    Prediction for Colorado vs. Arizona State

    The betting lines don’t seem to think this will be a blowout for Colorado, but it sure feels that way. Arizona State did find a way to score 28 points against USC and barely lost to Cal by three last Saturday.

    Colorado’s offense is just too potent for them not to score a bunch of points. Shedeur Sanders has been electric and led the Buffaloes to at least 31 points in four of their five games.

    WR Jimmy Horn Jr., WR Xavier Weaver, and the newly emerged WR Omarion Miller have torched defenses all season on all three levels of the field. Sanders has found a way to consistently take advantage of opposing defenses.

    The Sun Devils started QB Trenton Bourguet with both Jaden Rashada and Drew Pyne injured. He acquitted himself well against Cal, throwing for 344 yards, but it wasn’t quite enough in a three-point loss.

    If Arizona State wants to win, they must lean on Sacramento State transfer Cameron Skattebo. The do-it-all back has turned into the catalyst for the Sun Devils offense, and the Buffaloes can get taken advantage of on the ground.

    The Sun Devils won’t be able to stop them enough on defense, and things could get out of hand if two-way star Travis Hunter returns for this game. CU won’t blow them out like they did Nebraska, but it should be a comfortable win while staying under the 60.5 total.

    Prediction: Colorado 34, Arizona State 21
