After a three-game homestand, the Utah Utes will be on the road. They will take on the Boston College Eagles at 5 p.m. ET Saturday at Ocean Center. The Utes will be strutting in after a victory while BC will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Utah took their game at home on Monday with ease, bagging an 86-55 win over the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. Among those leading the charge for Utah was guard David Jenkins Jr., who shot 6-for-9 from downtown and finished with 25 points and five dimes.
Meanwhile, BC came up short against the Rhode Island Rams on Wednesday, falling 57-49. Forward Quinten Post had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 11 points on 4-for-14 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.
Utah is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Boston College’s loss took them down to 3-1 while Utah’s win pulled them up to 3-0. We’ll see if the Eagles can steal the Utes’ luck or if Utah records another victory instead.
