San Diego is 14-29 against the spread against the WCC, 0-7 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread. BYU is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games, 1-5 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 13-30 against the spread following a win by 20 or more points. The home team has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two teams.
This is a big number but it looks to be right and I see BYU getting the cover.
