UCLA Struggling to Cover vs Utah

Josh Rosen UCLA

UCLA has been going through some growing pains this season, but history will not be helping them when they visit the Utah Utes Saturday. The Bruins are just 1-4 ATS in their past five contests against the Utes.

Shark Bites
  • Utah is 16-3 SU in their last 19 games after losing as favorites.
  • UCLA is 12-5 SU & 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games after losing as a fave.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Utah’s past six home games.

UCLA is coming off a heart-breaking loss to Washington State that saw the Bruins give up the game-winning touchdown with three seconds left. The biggest positive for UCLA backers to take away is the play of freshman quarterback Josh Rosen who has not thrown an interception in his past four starts.

A double-overtime loss to Arizona has realistically eliminated Utah from the delusional thought of making the college playoffs. Running back Devontae Booker has averaged 138.7 rushing yards and a touchdown in the past three games.
