Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games. The over is 4-0 in Washington’s last 4 games. Utah is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games against a team with a winning road record. The under is 9-4 in Utah’s last 13 home games.
Washington has been one of the best teams in the country this season, but Utah has played better of late and will be at home for this game. Utah has a balanced offensive attack, while Washington also uses a balanced attack. This will be the biggest task that the Huskies have faced this season, so it will be a good measuring stick for the country to see. I think this will be a low scoring game and I am taking Utah with the points.
