#669/670 ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* Under 139 Points – BYU vs Utah, Saturday at 9:30 PM ET - Two rivals going at it tonight and we expect a lower scoring affair. Both defenses have been stellar this year with BYU ranking 8th in eFG% defense and Utah ranking 10th in the same category. Neither team ranks inside the top 130 in eFG% offense despite playing a fairly easy slate of defenses this season. Utah has played one of the weaker schedules in the country thus far and they have not faced a defense ranked in the top 100 in efficiency. Despite playing a weak slate of defenses, Utah games have averaged 134 total points this season. BYU has played 2 top 100 defenses this season (San Diego St & Oregon) and those games have totaled 126 & 130 points. If we throw out their game vs Central Methodist (non Division 1) the Cougar games are averaging 132 total points. Neither team shoot the 3 pointer very well and both defend the arc at a high level (BYU #1 nationally defending the 3 and Utah 30th) so we don’t expect many points from deep. Our power ratings have this game finishing in the mid 130’s so some value on the Under in this one.
