Written by on November 20, 2019

While the seventh-ranked Utah Utes likely won’t have any trouble getting past the reeling Arizona Wildcats when they visit their Pac-12 rivals on Saturday, the Utes are facing a tall task in trying to cover the chalk as three-touchdown plus road favorites. With Utah looking to give their narrow CFP hopes a boost and Arizona desperate to for a win, let’s find out if the Utes are the pick to cover the big number in this one.

Why Bet On Utah?

Utah has won six straight including an emphatic 49-3 spanking of UCLA on Saturday to easily cover the spread as a 21-point home favorite over the Bruins. The Utes have scored 33 points or more in in five of their last six games while scoring 30 or more eight times this season. More importantly, the Utes have a phenomenal defense that ranks a stupendous fourth nationally in points allowed by limiting the opposition to just 11.3 points per game.

Last, but not least, quarterback Tyler Huntley is having a fantastic, if undervalued season in completing a blistering 74.2 percent of his passes while tossing 13 TD passes and just one interception.

Why Bet On Arizona?

There’s only one reason why anyone should back the Wildcats in this contest and it’s because the Wildcats are getting just over three touchdowns as home underdogs. Unfortunately, Arizona has lost five straight and comes into this contest off a pitiful 34-6 loss against sixth-ranked Oregon on Saturday while failing to cover the spread as a whopping 27-point road underdog.

The Wildcats have given up 34 points or more in each of their last five games while allowing 41 points in two of those losses and 51 points in another. Arizona has won three of their five home dates this season, but they’ve dropped two straight on their home turf and will have a healthy sense of urgency in this contest. While Arizona averages a healthy 30.2 points per game (64th), the Wildcats also allow an overly generous 37.0 points per game defensively (123rd).

Utah vs Arizona Expert Analysis and Prediction

After watching Arizona in last week’s loss to Oregon, I have no doubt that the Wildcats are going down and going down hard in this contest. The Wildcats are giving up points like they’re going out of style and Utah is firing on all cylinders on both sides of the ball right now. The Utes have limited three of their last four opponents to a field goal or less while holding five opponents this season to a touchdown or less.

Utah has won three straight in this rivalry including an emphatic 42-10 home win last season as a 13.5-point home favorite. The Utes are a perfect  6-0 ATS in their last 6 conference games and bankroll-boosting 14-6 ATS in their last 20 road games. Conversely, Arizona has gone an uninspiring 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and winless 0-5 ATS in their last 5 conference games. Simply put, I like Utah to win big in this contest to cover the chalk!

Pick: Utah 42 Arizona 17
