Utah vs. BYU Total Pick

College Football Predictions: Will Utah vs. BYU fall under 46? 9/9/17

Will BYU and Utah find themselves in a physical, defensive battle when they collide tonight at 10:15PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Utah is favored on the road, as the Utes are getting odds of -3 points against BYU. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 46 points. Utah has won six straight meetings with BYU and the two have hit the over in three of their last five encounters. These two meet from LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah. The game will air live on ESPN2.

Utah got its season started with a 37-16 win at home over North Dakota. The Utes went under the total in the win, which was set at 59 points. Utah put up 499 yards of offense in the win while giving up 242 yards to North Dakota, including just 55 yards on the ground. Tyler Huntley threw for 227 yards and a touchdown in the win while rushing for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Zack Moss added 128 rushing yards with a touchdown. BYU is off to a 1-1 start to the season. The Cougars defeated Portland State 20-6 while losing to LSU, 27-0 last week. BYU has hit the under in both contests with ease. The BYU defense hasn’t been too bad, as it is allowing just 349.5 yards per game thus far. However, the offense is a mess. The Cougars are averaging just 231 yards per game right now and were held to only 97 total yards against LSU, including -5 rushing yards against the Tigers. Tanner Mangum has thrown for 296 yards and a touchdown to lead the team this year while Squally Canada has 106 rushing yards with a score.

Bet on Utah vs. BYU

The total is being set very low in this game because of BYU’s struggles on offense. I don’t see BYU being able to change things around this week against Utah, a team that has had its number over the years. Utah is likely to see some offensive struggles tonight as well. BYU may be poor on offense, but the defense looks like it is pretty good. I expect this game to be ugly.
