No. 14 Utah vs Baylor Odds

  • Opening point spread: Utah -6.5
  • Opening moneyline: Utah TBA/Baylor TBA
  • Opening total: Over/Under 50.5 points scored
  • Time: Noon ET Saturday (ESPN)

UPDATE 1 P.M. ET FRIDAY: BetMGM opened the Utes -6.5 and peaked at -8.5 this morning, before backing up to -7.5 just a few minutes ago. Early ticket count heavily favors Utah, at nearly 8/1, and early money is 2.5/1 on the Utes.

The moneyline opened Utah -225/Baylor +180, peaked at -350/+270 and is now -300/+250. It's pretty much all Utes at BetMGM.

By Wednesday, the total at BetMGM was down to 47 from a 50.5 opener. It's still at 47 this afternoon, with tickets just shy of 2/1 on the Over, but money 2.5/1 on the Under.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET MONDAY: Utah didn't have starting QB Cam Rising in Week 1, as he nears recovery from a torn ACL in the Rose Bowl. But it hardly mattered as the Utes (1-0 SU and ATS), giving 5.5 points at home, coasted by Florida 24-11.

Baylor (0-1 SU and ATS) opened its season Saturday against Sun Belt Conference foe Texas State, in what was expected to be an easy home opener. Instead, the Bears were major upset victims, stunningly dealt a 42-31 loss laying 27.5 points.

Interestingly, TwinSpires' first moves on this game were to Utah -6/-5.5. But that tide quickly turned, and the Utes are now -7. Utah is taking 74% of early tickets/53% of early money.

"Sharp play on Baylor +6.5 and +6," Lucas said.

The total nudged up to 51, with 55% of early tickets/62% of early money on the Over.
