The 2012 college football season continues this week, and here at Cappers Info, we’ll be looking at some of the best games on the docket each and every week, as we try to make the most money possible off of the CFB odds for the week. Join us on Friday, as we make our Utah Utes @ Utah State Aggies free picks and predictions for what should be a great clash on the gridiron.
Week 2 College Football Picks: Utah Utes @ Utah State Aggies
Date: Friday, September 7th, 8:00 ET
Location: Romney Stadium, Logan, UT
CFB Betting Odds: Utah -7.5
Utah vs. Utah State Live TV: ESPN
This game is called the Battle of the Brothers, but considering just how badly Utah has beaten Utah State over the years, the Aggies may as well be referred to as the redheaded stepchild of the family. We hear all about how this game could very well end in an upset, but we just don’t buy it. QB Chuckie Keeton is still only a sophomore, and we aren’t buying into what he did last week against Southern Utah. The Utes are clearly the more sophisticated program with better depth, and generally speaking, that rules the day in college football. QB Jordan Wynn should have a big game against a defense that we think is going to be overrated. If Utah State couldn’t beat Utah with RB Robert Turbin carrying the load, we just don’t see how it is going to happen now either. This CFB pointspread should be double digits, and the fact that it isn’t makes us want to jump right in.
Utah @ Utah State Pick: Utah Utes -7.5
Utah @ Utah State Score Prediction: Utah 33 – Utah State 20
