Matchup History

Utah’s 71-66 win over Stanford back on December 31st, 2022, made it back-to-back wins for the Utes in this matchup.


Stanford is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a win while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. Utah is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games following an ATS loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 home games.


I’m backing Utah here. Both teams have been playing fairly well lately, but I’m still not sure how much I trust this Stanford team and I just feel that Utah is the better team. Not only are the Utes playing decent defense like we’ve become accustomed to seeing over the years, but they’ve added an offensive facet to their game as well and I think they can do enough to get themselves a win and cover here.
