Friday Night Lights
The Pac-12 gets all the love on Friday night when the Utah Utes head to Stanford to go up against the Cardinal. Although Stanford is only 3-5 straight up on the season they always play tough football. The Cardinal opened the week as six-point underdogs, but that has changed. According to the latest odds posted at MyBookie, the Cardinal is now nine-point underdogs. This move is because the public is happy to bet on Utah after they completely crushed UCLA in the last game.
Look Out For the Let-Down
Let down in college football is real. Teams get overly excited about a big win (like against UCLA) and they hold onto that for weeks, instead of focusing on the next opponent. To make matters worse the Utes are just 1-3 straight up on the road this season. This includes an abysmal record of 1-5 against the spread (ATS) when they are a road favorite. Utes coach Kyle Whittingham is a smart man and he has commented on the potential letdown multiple times in the media this week.
2021 Utah vs Stanford Predictions
The Utes are in trouble. They have a short week and a road trip. Stanford is fighting to be bowl eligible and they need a win. A win against a talented team like Utah will only help their case for a big bowl game. The Cardinals are a very dangerous dog as they are 11-4 ATS as a home underdog. This is too many points for a Utah team that is 2-5 ATS in the last 7 games as a favorite. Stanford can win this game, so the points are a plus.
