Against the Spread Pick

What a season it has been for the Aztecs. They are the only undefeated team and continue to pass every challenge thrown their way. Just in their last game on the road in New Mexico, they opened on a 17-0 run, which really set the tone for the remainder of the contest. Now returning home, they welcome in an average Utah State team looking for a signature win to improve their resume. Utah State has won three games in a row, with their last loss coming against Boise State in overtime. The Aggies have not played well on the road at all, posting a 1-4 record straight up thus far. Against the spread, they are 3-8 in road and neutral site games, so outside of Utah, they have been a team to fade. The Aztecs already beat this team by nine on the road, and I have every reason to believe the margin will be even greater in their home meeting. I look for the Aztecs to win this game comfortably and will take them as a lean to cover this spread.

Over Under Pick

This is a total I would stay away from because we do not know which Aztecs offense is going to show up. They average 74.2 points per game, but have had games where they cannot even break 70. The Aztec defense is going to do their part, as they allow just 55.7 points per game when at home. Utah State was only able to score 68 against a terrible Wyoming squad, so backing the under here is the only way I would look to play it.
