Don’t miss the NCAA Football Betting Action in Huskies vs. Utes Game

Washington Huskies vs. Utah Utes

It is true that Washington was a trendy NCAA Football betting pick to win the Pac 12 in many preseason polls.  Although they took a step back last year due to roster turnover the Huskies figured to storm back in 2018.  For one thing they boast one of the best quarterbacks in the land with senior Jake Browning.  Besides that, the 2017 campaign gave them valuable experience.  Not withstanding the weak Pac 12 South Division Utah was not among the top touted teams in preseason.  Despite that the Utes are extremely dangerous on their home field.

Huskies vs. Utes TV Coverage:  ESPN

Utah Utes

Utah is 2-0 straight up and 1-1 vs. the line.  Last week the Utes scored a 17-6 win at Northern Illinois as 12.5-point chalks.  Of great concern to Washington is Utah’s ranking as the top defensive team in the country.  Quarterback Tyler Huntley was sharp last week for the Utes.  To exemplify Huntley was 20/31 for 286 yards.  Zack Moss kept things balanced with 66 yards rushing on 16 carries with a TD.  And Utah held a 354-228 total yards advantage.

Washington Huskies

Washington lost a high stakes opener in Atlanta 21-16 to Auburn as 1.5-point dogs.  Subsequently the Huskies failed to cover a 45-3 home win over North Dakota last week.  In spite of the preseason hype Browning has been somewhat erratic to start the season.  In view of a 3/3 touchdown to interception ratio his numbers are underwhelming.  Also troubling is his 59% completion rate.  In particular Aaron Fuller has impressed.  Fuller has caught 13 passes for an average of 16.1 yards per catch.

Battle of the Coaches

In comparison this game features two of the premier coaches in the game.  Utah’s Kyle Whittingham and Washington’s Chris Peterson rate in the upper echelon.  For instance, Whittingham made Utah strong enough to be promoted out of the Mountain West Conference.  As a result of Peterson’s work U-Dub is back as a national contender with large fan support.

Numbers to Review

Washington has been a decent NCAA Football Betting value in road games.  To be exact the Huskies have paid in four of their last seven matchups away from home.  Further, five of their last six road tilts went under the total.  Utah has been a strong wagering play as a home team.  To begin with, the Utes have lost just three of their last 11 games vs. the line in the Muss. Five of their last eight home games have gone under the total.

Team vs Team

Utah covered this online wagering matchup last year in a 33-30 loss as 17.5-point road dogs.  Extending that is the fact that the Utes have covered the last three meetings.  Further, Washington and Utah have gone over the total four straight times.

Matchup to Watch

Certainly, Utah’s home field advantage rates as the NCAA Football Betting Matchup difference.  In particular many teams have had their dreams die in the Muss.  Concurrently the night time atmosphere will have Rice Eccles rocking.  Identical is the advantage Zack Moss gives Utah.  He is averaging almost seven yards per carry.

Summing up the Huskies are entering a trap at the Muss. Namely Utah owns the series and is proven at home.
