Point Spread Pick:
These two just met on January 26th with the Utes getting the point spread cover losing by 9 as a 14 point underdog. We believe that’s the key here. While Utah was never a real threat in the game they didn’t get embarrass themselves either getting within 4 points with 5:30 left. They’re now at home where their only loss came in OT and playing a Wildcat team who has lost 2 two in a row on the road. Take the Utah Utes +4.5.
