NCAA football betting fans will have their choice of two teams that have stumbled out of the gate with 1-3 records to start the college football betting season.
Kickoff Friday night is set for 8:05 PM Eastern and BYU opened as a 6 point favorite at Sports-Gambling.
The Brigham Young Cougars have a college football gambling record of 1-3 both straight up and against the spread with all 4 of their games going under the total. BYU is off to the worst start of the Bronco Mendenhall era and is coming off a 27-13 home loss to Nevada as 5 point dogs.
The much vaunted passing attack has been the downfall of the team.
After alternating signal callers the first two games Mendenhall finally settled on freshman Jake Heaps, who passed for 229 yards and a weak 5.1 yards per attempt average in the loss to Nevada. BYU was outgained 435-320 to the Wolfpack in a sobering defeat that shows how far they have fallen behind.
Utah State is a fellow member of the Western Athletic Conference with Nevada although not nearly as good. The Aggies have a NCAA football gambling record of 1-3 both straight up and against the spread.
Utah State caught the attention of handicappers when they went toe-to-toe with Oklahoma on opening day in a 31-24 loss as 34 point road dogs. They are slowly coming back down to earth as evidenced y their 41-7 loss at San Diego State as 9.5 point dogs.
Defense is the big weakness of the Aggies as they rank 88th overall for total yards allowed and 102nd for points permitted.
Utah State has gotten the money in 4 out of the last 5 head to head meetings in this series although BYU won all 5 games straight up. The last 3 meetings in this NCAA football betting series have gone under the total.
BYU has failed to bring home the bacon in 4 out of their last 6 road games while Utah State has paid out in 8 of their last 10 home games. The Aggies have gotten the money in 11 out of their last 15 games as a dog.
