Why Bet The Indiana Hoosiers To Beat The Utes
Indiana snapped their two-game losing streak by beating Purdue 26-24 in their regular season finale. The Hoosiers are looking to record their seventh win for the first time since the 2007 season and have not won a bowl game since 1991.
Indiana averages a modest 25.9 points per game to rank 87th nationally in scoring as quarterback Richard Lagow has completed 59.9 percent of his passes for 3,174 yards with 18 touchdowns but 16 costly interceptions.
Receivers Westbrook and Ricky Jones have combined for 1,698 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while running back Devine Redding has rushed for a team-high 1,050 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Indiana gave up 27.3 points per game defensively to rank 57th in points allowed nationally.
Why Bet The Utah Utes To Beat The Hoosiers
Utah lost their final two games of the season and come into this contest off a heartbreaking 27-22 loss to Colorado. The good news is that the Utes have won 12 of their last 13 bowl appearances.
Utah averages a healthy 30.1 points per game to rank 60th in scoring nationally despite the fact that quarterback Troy Williams has completed just 53.4 percent of his passes for 2,579 yards with 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Wide receivers Tim Patrick and Raelon Singleton have combined for 1,138 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while running back Joe Williams has rushed for a team-high 1,185 yards and nine touchdowns. Utah’s defense has limited the opposition to 23.9 points per game defensively to rank 38th in points allowed.
Foster Farms Bowl Pick & Final Score Prediction
66 percent of the betting public likes Utah to get the win and ATS cove and I’m surprised the figure isn’t higher seeing as how the Utes have been nationally ranked virtually all season long and are clearly better that the Hoosiers in every single facet.
Indiana has gone 0-4 ATS in their last four neutral site games while Utah has compiled a perfect 6-0 ATS mark in their last six games against teams from the Big Ten while also going 5-1 ATS in their last six bowl games.
The Utes will win this contest going way to cover the spread with room to spare!
