BYU vs. Texas Line Movement
4* Free Week 9 NCAA Betting Prediction: BYU +17.5
Call it a hunch, but I’m going to say that my pick is to take BYU at +17.5. BYU are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games.
My big play is on the UNDER in this one. I’ve got it coming in from 44-47. I trust my forecast for this one. PLAY THE UNDER.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Texas’ last 5 games, and 5 of UT’s last 5 when playing at home.
