Why UCLA can cover

UCLA has been one of the most pleasant surprises in college football this season, racing out to a 5-0 start. The Bruins have won three of those games in blowout fashion, including a road win at Colorado. The final score of their game against Washington last week was deceiving, as they held a 24-point lead in the third quarter before allowing 16 garbage-time points in the fourth quarter. 

Senior quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson has thrown for 1,211 yards, 11 touchdowns and one interception while also rushing for 223 yards and three scores. Senior running back Zach Charbonnet has rushed for 417 yards and five touchdowns, averaging 6.4 yards per carry. The Bruins have covered the spread in six of their last eight games, including five consecutive conference games. 

Why Utah can cover

Utah could have easily given up on its season after losing a heartbreaking game at Florida to open the year, but the Utes have responded with a resilient stretch of games. They have won all four of their games since then by at least three touchdowns, including a 42-16 blowout against Oregon State last week. Utah has covered the spread in all four of those games, so the Utes are undervalued by the betting market right now. 

Junior quarterback Cameron Rising has thrown for 1,153 yards, 13 touchdowns and two interceptions, and he is backed up by a dominant defense. The Utes have not allowed more than 16 points in a game since their season opener. They have won and covered the spread in five consecutive games against UCLA, and they are available at a reasonable price this week due to UCLA's winning streak.
