The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Utes opened as 5-point road favorites versus the Wildcats but are now 6.5-point favorites. The total, meanwhile, opened at 63.5 and is now down to 62 points.

The Records

Utah is 8-1 on the year and 5-4 against the spread, while Arizona is 5-5 overall and 5-5 at the betting window. The Utes are coming off a win and a cover in a 34-23 victory last Saturday night at Washington, while the Wildcats lost 38-30 to USC last week but covered easily as a 19-point dog.

The Pick

Arizona may have a slight edge against Utah in terms of total offense but there's a huge difference when you compare both teams' defenses. The Utes are holding opponents to 114.3 yards per game on the ground this season, which ranks 17th in the nation. They're also 32nd in the country in points allowed at 21.6 and while their offense isn't as efficient as the Wildcats' spread attack, Arizona is 110th in total yards allowed defensive this season (455.2), 114th in passing yards allowed (276.3), 85th in rushing yards allowed (178.9), and 103rd in points allowed (34.6) per game in 2015. Last year Utah lost 42-10 at home to Arizona so revenge will be on the minds of the Utes tonight in Tucson.
