I don’t consider myself a gambling addict, but I sure as hell am addicted to winning. That’s why I placed a bet on Utah State +12 at Utah in the “Battle of the Brothers”. I did say last week that Utah was awesome at home, and we did end up winning big on them, but it still wasn’t the dominant performance I would expect from a team that is laying double digit points against an in-state rival. If Utah didn’t pick six that god awful Iowa kid under center for Michigan, this line tonight is absolutely in the single digits.
These two teams did not play last year, but Utah needed a 4th quarter comeback to pull out a 30-26 victory in 2013. In 2012, Utah State won outright. I think it’s more probable than not that Utah will win, but I am absolutely backing Utah State to at least keep this close with their senior QB and a very stout defense.
