Week 6 Free College Football Picks - Arizona vs Utah

Arizona Wildcats Coach Congratulates Player

The Arizona Wildcats enters their matchup against Utah as 10 point underdogs, but our handicapper is not buying this line. In this article he explains why the Wildcats have a clear edge on this game.

 Arizona at Utah (-10) 10:00 ET 

This week, we follow much the same theme with an Arizona team, who in this current coaching matchup of Rodriguez vs. Whittingham has won and covered 4 straight years by margins of 7, 32, 11 and 10 points. NOW, THEY ARE A 10 POINT UNDERDOG? Don’t expect Arizona HC Rodriguez to fix something that ain't broke! 

 

Arizona has suffered a cluster of injuries to their best offensive skill position players. This week, the list is headlined by QB Solomon (knee), QB Dawkins (ribs) and RB Wilson (ankle)… all questionable for this contest!  But at 2-3 SU, 1-4 ATS, including 0-2 SU in PAC 12 play, Arizona is in dire need of a victory. Remember that was just 2 weeks ago, they took the top team in the loop (Washington) to OT in a 35-28 loss. With Rodriguez, an over 90% ATS play, coming off consecutive defeats and now facing a superior team, look for the best effort from the Wildcats against a team they have dominated.  

 

It is not the style of the Utes to author blowout wins.  In fact, they have failed to cover 5 consecutive times the last 2 years as home chalk of 7 or more points.  Besides, the Utes are off a pair of last-minute, closely fought games. Two weeks ago, it was a massive comeback on this field as they scored in the final minute for a 31-27 win and cover.  Last week, against a Cal defense which is the worst in the PAC 12, the Utes had it first and goal inside the 10 in the closing minute, but failed to score in a 28-23 loss. It is doubtful that there is anything left in the tank for a blowout victory against a hungry team, who has owned them!  I invite you to put the College Football ODDS in your favor and join me in my College Football PICK on Arizona tonight.
