Utah is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 October games. The over is 8-1 in Utah’s last 9 road games. Washington State is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 conference games. The under is 7-1 in Washington State’s last 8 games. Utah is 2-5 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Utah is coming off of a huge home win against USC, while Washington State has lost two games in a row. Utah’s offense is averaging over 40 points per game, but will go up against a Washington State defense that has been pretty good this year. Utah just went through a very tough two game schedule and will need to keep their focus up if they want to avoid an upset. Washington State has been disappointing in their last two games and hasn’t shown enough to keep up with the Utes here.
