Point Spread: 2.00 | -113.00 Utah (Home)
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
