Southern Utah Thunderbirds vs. Utah Utes Predictions

Key Stat: Ranked FBS against FCS? Yes, that’s going to be easy

Tip Reasoning

  • Utah lost the first game, but it was a close contest against an elite team in Florida
  • Southern Utah isn’t even ranked in the FCS
  • Utah will look to dominate and bounce back following a defeat in the season opener

Yeah, contests don’t get much easier than that. It’s Week 2, so it’s common to see so many cupcakes and blowouts as teams get to grips before conference play starts, and Utah host Southern Utah in order to get some easy touchdowns.

The spread seems to be a bit low after Utah’s losing start to the season, but it’s nothing uncommon since they played a strong Florida team led by future 1st-round quarterback Anthony Richardson who had a hell of a game. It’s the type of game where all players want to show what they can do to impress scouts and let the nation knows that, although the season started with a loss, they’re still a strong team.

Plus, with Southern Utah marking this game as a loss in their schedule, you can expect the fire to continue once the second and third teams start to play for Utah. Anyway, the point is, they should cover.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Utah wants to show its power to the world

  • A cupcake game after a loss to start the season is a dream
  • Southern Utah isn’t even an FCS powerhouse
  • There’s a ton of scoring potential for the home team

The total line for this match is set at 56.5 points which is reasonable having in mind both teams’ positions in the overall standings. Utah is one of the best teams in Pac-12 and Southern Utah is a regular team in the FCS (which is basically the second division). Look for Utah to absolute wreck their rivals and for their starters to play just the first half; the backups will also want to show their talent and there aren’t many opportunities like this game over the course of a season, which should help the over as well.
