College Football Betting Preview: Arizona Wildcats vs. Utah Utes
November 18, 2023
Two Top 25 teams will square off in the Pac-12 in week 12 of the college football season when the 22
-ranked Utah Utes travel to Tucson, Arizona to face the 17
-ranked Arizona Wildcats at Arizona Stadium with the game scheduled to start at 2:30 PM ET on Saturday afternoon and will air on the Pac-12 Network.
Utah has won the Pac-12 or has been in the Pac-12 Championship game in four of the last five seasons, with the Covid season being the only time they didn’t play for the championship, however, they will not be playing for the Pac-12 Championship this season as they enter this game with a record of 7-3 which includes a record of 4-3 in the Pac-12 which puts them in 6
place in the division and two games behind the Oregon Ducks for the final spot in the game while also trailing Oregon State and Arizona by a game. However, they have already lost to Oregon this season by a score of 6-35 at home and have lost two of their last three games including last week’s 28-35 loss on the road against the Washington Huskies, and will be facing their 4
Top 25 opponent in their last five games when they travel to face the Arizona Wildcats.
The Arizona Wildcats didn’t start off well in their Pac-12 conference schedule as they started with a record of 1-2, however, since the loss on the road against the USC Trojans, the Arizona Wildcats have gone on a four-game winning streak which includes last week’s 34-31 win on the road against the Colorado Buffaloes and enter this game with a record of 7-3 and a record of 5-2 in conference play. Their offense can be attributed to the success that the Wildcats have had this season as they enter this game averaging 31.1 points per game which is above the national average of 27.96 points per game this season. They will look to remain in the Pac-12 Championship picture when they host the Utah Utes on Saturday afternoon.
BookMaker has the Arizona Wildcats listed as 1-point favorites at home against the Utah Utes on Saturday afternoon in week 12 of the college football season. Utah has won six of the last ten including six straight games in the series against Arizona. Both teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Utes are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Utah Utes are 6-3-1 ATS overall, 2-1-1 ATS on the road, 2-2 ATS as an underdog, and 5-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Arizona Wildcats are 8-2 ATS overall, 5-0 ATS at home, 2-2 ATS as a favorite, and 5-2 ATS in conference games on the year.
Arizona is ranked higher in the College Football Playoff rankings and is playing at home where they are 5-0 ATS, however, Utah has dominated the series as they have won the last six games against the Wildcats. The Utes have won by an average margin of 18.33 points per game during the win streak as well which is why I am taking the moneyline for the Utah Utes at -102 when they travel to face the Arizona Wildcats in week 12 of the college football season.
Spooky Express Pick: Utah Utes Moneyline (-102)
