BYU Cougars vs Houston Cougars betting preview
Everyone is expecting a high-scoring game between two incredible offenses that can score whenever they want. The over/under betting total in this game started at 60 and is now as high as 62.5. Quarterback Zach Wilson looks like a Heisman sleeper with his ability to lead this offense. BYU stumbled last week in a close win against UTSA, but the team may have been looking ahead to the game against Houston.
Houston has played one game on the season after an incredible number of postponed games. They looked great in the debut with an impressive win over Tulane, but this is a step up in competition. QB Clayton Tune completed over 60 percent of his passes in the last game as his team finished with nearly 500 yards off offense and scored 49 points. Marquez Stevenson is the player to watch in this game. He has the potential to play on Sundays and will be difficult for BYU to stop.
BYU vs Houston pick against the spread
BYU is backed by solid coaching and that always keeps this team focused. They are 11-5 ATS in the last 16 road games. However, it gets a bit tougher when you are a road favorite that is expected to win and cover. BYU is 3-8 ATS as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in the last five games as a road favorite. That firmly puts the play on Houston who excels as a home dog at the betting window. Houston is 21-7-1 ATS in the last 29 games as an underdog. They has covered seven of the last nine games on Friday night and they get the upset win over BYU.
