College Football Betting Trends
The Utes are 6-0 ATS in their last six games on grass. Utah is 4-0 ATS in its last four conference games.
The Sun Devils are 1-4 ATS in the last four meetings. Arizona State is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 conference games.
Utah has played well in its last two road games, smashing a ranked Stanford team 40-21 to begin its four-game win streak before dominating UCLA last week. All four games have been decided by at least 13 points. The Sun Devils are feeling good about things after the win at USC, but this game presents an entirely different beast against a red-hot team. I'm taking the favorites here.
