BYU is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against the Mountain West conference while the under is 18-7-1 in their last 26 road games. Utah State is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. BYU is 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings between these two teams.

The bye week couldn’t have come at a worse possible time for BYU, as the bye week killed whatever momentum the Cougars had from that Boise State game. BYU also has a tendency to get up for their coach Kalani Sitake, but the Cougars just aren’t consistent enough to give a low line like this value. Utah State plays their best football at home and have won each of their three home games this season by double digits. I’ll take a shot with Utah State for the bounce back performance with a win here.
