2022 UTAH UTES BETTING ODDS, PREDICTIONS, PREVIEW
The Utah Utes enter this season as reigning Pac-12 Champions after finishing 10-4 SU last season. Alongside Oregon, Utah has been a top dog in the conference over the past four season. Kyle Wittingham returns for his 18th season as head coach and will be accompanied by plenty of talent and returning players.
It starts with quarterback Cameron Rising (2,493 YDS, 20 TD, 5 INT) who is back for another season after leading the troops to a Pac-12 Championship. The offensive line returns three starters and should give rising plenty of time to operate. Rising’s go-to target also returns in Brant Kuithe (50 REC, 611 1YDS, 6 TD). Returning from the backfield will be Tavion Thomas (204 ATT, 1,108 YDS, 21 TD) and Micah Bernard (87 ATT, 523 YDS, 2 TD) who did an excellent job with the workload last season. The defense was exceptionally good last season and are set-up for similar success in 2022.
The Utes win total is set at 8.5 this season, one less win than they had last year. Their schedule is no cake walk, but this is a good football team that is capable of covering. Opening at Florida is a tough game, but their other two non-conference games against Southern Utah and San Diego State should be wins. Arizona and Colorado are both on the schedule which is always a plus. If they can take one against Oregon, USC, or Arizona State they should be in good position to cover. Assuming no major problems along the way, best bet on the board for Utah is over 8.5 wins (-130).
Best Bet: Over 8.5 Wins (-130)

UTAH UTES ODDS TO WIN PAC-12 CHAMPIONSHIP
With all the hype around USC and Oregon I think people may forget that this is your Pac-12 Champion. Regardless of if they make it to the Pac-12 Championship, Utah will be in the mix at the end of the season. This isn’t a bet that is going to be washed after three weeks, there is some life and value to it. It is not a lock but putting a wager on the Utes is a solid play here.

The chances of this happening are slim, but it is not completely out of the question. An undefeated or one loss season would at least put them in the conversation of the playoffs. I would not recommend a full unit, but if the Utes go off this year, then skies the limit.

Cameron Rising (QB) +8000
While Rising is far from the favorite, he does offer a bit of value. It would probably take an undefeated season to put him in the conversation but as mentioned before, this team has proven themselves to be winners. This one is a long shot but there is some value here with that kind of juice.
