The Bruins and the Utes know that they are in a very similar boat right now. Both are playing great ball, and both have the argument that they should be undefeated from an ATS standpoint this year. UCLA is. Utah is an overtime period short. QB Brett Hundley and QB Travis Wilson are largely the same signal caller, and they are going to be able to change the game with their arm or with their legs. Both are going to have multiple touchdowns, and both youngsters are probably going to make a mistake or two as well. Both teams have some mild concerns with injuries to some skill position players as well, but this isn’t anything that we are having all that much of a problem with, as the talent is there on both sides of the ball at all positions to be able to make some noise. Both teams have also played against some pretty darn good schedules.
So what makes UCLA worth backing in this game? We hate the fact that the Bruins are going to be as square as could be, but they are going to be in for a solid outing as we see it. That road trip to Lincoln at the outset of the year is going to pay dividends now that the games are getting tougher on the road against some of these lesser foes. The Utes have failed to cover four straight games in conference, and though they are a better team than they were last year, they aren’t a team that is ready to step it up and play with the real big boys of the conference. This one will be close, but we don’t see it derailing UCLA’s season. The Utes have covered three straight in this series, and the home team has covered three of the last four, but Thursday night is when all of that comes to an end.
UCLA vs. Utah Pick: UCLA Bruins -4
