The 16th-ranked Utah Utes have scored at least 40 points each game during their four-game winning streak. Will Utah score plenty again today while also giving up some points on the road to send its contest at Arizona State to the over?

Utah running back Zack Moss is coming off his biggest game of the season and now has 964 rushing yards this season and 10 touchdowns on 164 carries. He also has eight receptions for 50 yards and a TD. Quarterback Tyler Huntley is 143-of-219 through the air for 1,700 yards with 11 TDs and four interceptions. Huntley has also rushed for 262 yards and four scores. Britain Covey is the Utes' top receiver with 48 catches for 531 yards and a touchdown. He is also 3-of-3 passing for 71 yards and two TDs. Samson Nacua has 21 receptions for 238 yards and two scores.

College Football Betting Trends
The over is 4-0 in the last four Utes games after accumulating 170 or less passing yards the previous game. The under is 5-1 in the last six Utah games following a straight up win.
The over is 4-1 in the last five Sun Devils games in November. The under is 4-1 in the last five Arizona State games versus a team with a winning record.
As good as the Utah offense is, it also has a defense capable of getting consistent stops. I expect both teams will be able to run the ball fairly well, but that keeps the clock moving and shortens the number of total possessions. The Sun Devils haven't scored more than 21 points in their last two home games and I expect there will be more struggles to put points on the board today. Go with the under.
PREDICTION: UTAH/ARIZONA STATE UNDER 54.5
