Still crunched for time to do more detailed blogs. But for the time being, I can at least get a couple of free football plays posted here each week. Contact me for details on any of my packages, as there’s always time to properly service my clients!

339 BYU at 340 UTAH STATE

Take: UTAH STATE -3

I’m playing this one on the power ratings projections. BYU is off a great win against Boise State and had last week off. Utah State is off a dreadful game at Air Force where they were destroyed for 60 minutes against the option, which they appeared to have no idea on how to defend. Those two results have gotten the market firmly behind the underdog in this game, and I see the value now being with the Aggies. Utah State might be an overall disappointment but this is still a decent team. BYU has had its moments to be sure, as they did beat Boise, also upset USC and topped Tennessee on the road, although that one was remarkably lucky. But the Cougars also have road losses to South Florida and Toledo, and the Aggies are a lot better than either of those two entries. My number on this game is Utah State -6, and with line now down to -3, it’s time to back the favorite.
