The BYU Cougars are 5-1 SUATS versus Mountain West Conference opponents since 2012

Utah State will look to bounce back from a 21-14 loss to Arkansas State as three-point road underdogs on Sept. 20, while it has failed to cover the number in its last three games despite winning the statistical battle.  The Aggies have dropped six straight and 25 of 26 road games against non-conference opponents, which can’t be ignored when looking over the Week 6 college football odds page, but it has won two of its last three matchups against ranked teams.  Utah State is 4-3 SU and 5-2 ATS in October the last two-plus seasons.

The Aggies may be without the services of signal-caller Chuckie Keeton, who is dealing with a knee injury—something to consider when making your college football betting picks.  Utah State has dropped each of its last 17 visits to Provo in this in-state rivalry, but it’s important to point out that the last two were both decided by three points.

BYU is 4-0 SU and 2-2 ATS through four games this season, as it looks to build on a 41-33 victory over the Virginia Cavaliers as 14.5-point home favorites in Week 4, but it did get out-gained by 187 yards in that affair.  The Cougars are capable of moving the ball on any team in the country—coming in averaging 37.5 points and off to their best start to a season since 2008.  BYU is 5-1 SUATS against Mountain West Conference foes over the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER cashing in all six of those occurrences.

The Cougars have one of the more dynamic playmakers in Taysom Hill, who is tied for first nationally among signal-callers with seven rushing touchdowns and his 107.0 yards per game on the ground is behind just two players at that position.  BYU is averaging a stellar 230.3 rushing yards per game overall, but it’ll face off against a stop unit that limits opponents to just 78.3 per game.

Sports bettors will likely back the Cougars due to the Aggies failure to cover the spread in their last four road games.
