TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1ST
#109 BYU (-9′) over Utah State at 9 PM EST
The Old Wagon Wheel will be up for grabs in Logan on Friday night and the Cougars are in perfect position to possess the trophy for another year. The Aggies enter this contest off an ugly 27-3 home loss to the Broncos and they don’t match up well against the No. 13 team in the nation either.
One thing BYU has done in outstanding fashion is cash tickets in true road games. In fact, on foreign soil, the Stormin’ Mormons hold a lucrative 36-22 ATS mark in their last 58 lined wars including an elite 20-6 ATS in this run provided they are matched up against an opponent that played in the comforts of home last. With those two parameters live and neither team competing with rest, this trend cruises to a profitable 17-4 ATS. Equally impressive, since 2017, undefeated game five guests are on a respectable 27-6 SU and 24-9 ATS run including a reliable 20-3 SU and 19-4 ATS if their opponent takes the field off a conference game. With those two parameters in play and our road team favored by -7 or more, this fast-developing situation jumps to a solid 12-0 SU and 11-1 ATS. That bodes well for BYU.
Home dog roles haven’t really worked well for USU at all. In fact, since October 22nd, 2005, the Aggies own a weak 8-31 SU and 13-26 ATS mark when shagging points inside Maverik Stadium including a pitiful 3-25 SU and 7-21 ATS provided their opponent checks in off a straight up win. It should be noted that in that last tightener, Utah State is on a shocking 0-11 SU and ATS run and has dropped those battles by an average of 19.5 points per game. Also, when stepping up in class and tackling a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .701 or better, head coach Blake Anderson’s kids own a feeble 3-13 SU and 4-12 ATS record including a disturbing 0-7 SU and ATS if their opponent arrives off a home game.
If you want to win big games in college football, then you need to bring a defense to the table. The Aggies stop unit is allowing an average of 29.8 points and 463.3 yards per game while the Cougars “D” has surrendered an average of only 19.3 points and 386.5 yards per game. The Stormin’ Mormons defense will be the difference. Take BYU. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
