The Arizona State Sun Devils will try to accomplish something they haven't done since 2014: Win nine games. 

The only thing standing in their way is a Las Vegas Bowl meeting with the Wisconsin Badgers, a team that has played nearly every strong Big Ten opponent tough (if not defeating them) this season. 

According to SI Sportsbook, the Badgers are seven-point favorites over Arizona State when the two are set to collide at Allegiant Stadium on Thursday, Dec. 30.

In fact, the majority of the Pac-12 teams are underdogs in their bowl games, with the only exception being Oregon State listed as 7.5-point favorites over Utah State in the LA Bowl. 

This will be only the third time all season where Arizona State is the underdog, as the Sun Devils were field-goal underdogs at UCLA and one-point dogs to Utah. 

Arizona State has failed to cover the spread in four of its lastix games, covering only against mediocre teams such as Arizona and USC. 

As for Wisconsin, the Badgers have also failed to cover the spread in their previous two matchups, despite successfully doing so the prior four games. 

The over/under for the game is currently set at 42.5. Wisconsin's over has either hit or pushed in four of the last six games, while Arizona State's under has successfully hit in the three of the last five games.
