Wildcats on a major slide
The Arizona Wildcats need any positive momentum right now, as they have lost five straight after a 34-6 drubbing at the hands of Oregon last weekend. The Wildcats are now just 4-6 on the year, 2-5 in the Pac-12, 2-7-1 against the spread and 6-4 with the over.
Arizona has been a mess on defense this season, giving up 37 points and 480.8 yards per game, which includes 314 passing yards per contest. Offensively, Arizona is putting up 30.2 points and 470.2 yards per game. The Cats have turned to two quarterbacks to run the offense. Khalil Tate and Grant Gunnell have combined for 2,830 passing yards and 21 touchdowns. Tate has added 331 rushing yards and three touchdowns. J.J. Taylor is the team’s leading rusher with 640 yards and five scores while Jamarye Joiner is the leading receiver with 26 catches for 391 yards and three touchdowns.
Utah win streak up to six
The Utah Utes won their sixth straight games last weekend, a 49-3 win over UCLA at home. The Utes are now 9-1 on the season, 6-1 in the Pac-12, 7-3 against the spread and 7-2-1 with the under.
Utah has been led by its defense this year. The Utes are giving up just 11.3 points and 248.8 yards per game. The unit is being led by Bradlee Anae, who has 21 tackles with 10 sacks. Offensively, Utah is putting up 34.7 points and 455.4 yards per outing. Tyler Huntley is leading the way with 2,397 passing yards and 13 touchdowns while rushing for 221 yards and five scores. Zack Moss is the team’s leading rusher with 955 yards and 13 touchdowns while Bryan Thompson is the leading receiver with 17 catches for 452 yards and three touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Wildcats are just 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games in November and 0-5 ATS in their last five Pac-12 games.
The Utes have covered the spread in their last five after a win and in six straight conference games.
Utah has won and covered the spread in the last three meetings, including a 42-10 victory at home last season. The Utes are on a nice run, managing to cover every spread thrown their way. I think today will be no different. The Utes are on a nice offensive surge right now to compliment their impressive defense. Arizona can pose some challenges with their speed, but the Utes should be able to run over this Wildcat defense. With Oregon holding Arizona to just six points, I would expect the Utes to want to try and make a statement and do something similar.
