(NCAAB) BYU vs. Utah, 11/27/2021 9:30 PM, Score: 75 - 64
Point Spread: 2.00 | -113.00 Utah (Home)
Result: Loss
10* Utah (9:30 ET): Two 5-0 teams meet in Salt Lake City tonight with Utah hosting rival BYU. Brigham Young is ranked (#18), but that’s basically based on one win - an admittedly impressive 81-49 thrashing of Oregon. But I told you to fade this team earlier in the week and sure enough they failed to cover the spread against Texas Southern. Here, the Cougars won’t enjoy the same kind of size advantage they had in their last game. I look for Utah to hand them their first loss of the year.

The Utes don’t have a marquee win like BYU does, but four of their five wins have been by double digits. In addition to having the home court advantage, the schedule sets up nicely for Utah, who has not played since Sunday when they beat Tulsa 72-58 in Daytona Beach. That was a game they controlled start to finish.

This is BYU’s first “true” road game of the season. Utah is 23-7 SU its last 30 home games and is looking to avenge an 18-point loss in Provo from last season. These teams have a very similar statistical profile with Utah having slight edges in both PPG allowed and FG% defense. In the end, it boils down to the home court edge, more rest and revenge. 10* Utah
