Colorado is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven home games and 11-5-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Utah is 37-14-2 against the spread in their last 53 games, 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight road games, and 40-17-1 against the spread against the Pac-12. The home team has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
The total here is ridiculously low and the over here is a very easy winner. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
