The odds were finally released for the Arizona Wildcats as they visit the Utah Utes this Saturday in Salt Lake City, and the late opening lines were likely due to Matt Scott's injury status. With Scott now listed as probable, Vegas still has the Utes opening as three-point favorites, according to OddsShark.com. The spread has stiffened to one-point in Utah's favor as of Friday afternoon.
The total for the Wildcats' bout with the Utes is 60.5, hardly surprising with Arizona's high-scoring offense and defense that last week awarded 31 points to Colorado (alright, it wasn't all the defense, but still).
Arizona has an over-under record of 7-2 this season while Utah stands at 4-4-1.
Not surprisingly, Arizona has been over the total in its past five games.
However, the Wildcats are 1-11 straight up in their past 12 games on the road, and playing in a chilly Rice-Eccles Stadium doesn't really look too good if that trend continues. Giving Arizona fans more reason to worry, the Utes are 4-1 straight up in their past five home games.
