BYU Football: Vegas has Cougars favored over Utah, releases 4 other opening lines

Utah Football 2017 Match Preview Prediction and Players: Las Vegas casinos have been releasing college football lines over the past month, and recently released its “games of the year.” Golden Nugget casino released a handful of its games of the year this past week, with BYU involved in 3 of those. Lines for LSU and UNLV were also released earlier in the month.

In what may be a surprise to many BYU fans, Vegas has BYU as an early 3-point favorite over the Utes. With the game in Provo, changes in Utah’s offensive coaching staff, and a few more defections from Utah’s team (particularly along the offensive line), Vegas put BYU as a slight favorite. In case you forgot, BYU has lost to Utah 6 consecutive times, with the last win coming in 2009 (SORRY FOR THE REMINDER). Here are each of the 5 games that Vegas has publicly released for BYU. Remaining games on BYU’s schedule will be released during game week. All lines are via vegasinsider.com. (Note: “+” means underdog, “-” means favored).

“It is a new era and a different setting, but it is more fun because they are good friends,” Vetterli said. “They really like each other, and this is how they wanted to do it. They both said the Rivalry for Charity [event] will continue. Both were adamant that they will be back next year before any of us even asked them.” The coaches whose teams will battle at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Sept. 9 not only played on the same four-person scramble team, they rode in the same golf cart until Whittingham had to leave early for his football camp.

Their team, which also included Brad Johnson and Troy Tait, fired a 12-under-par 60 — better than average among the 33 teams in the tournament. What in the name of Bronco Mendenhall is going on here? “Kyle just called me a couple weeks ago and asked if we could play together, and I agreed,” Sitake said. “We are always competing at stuff, whether it is for recruits or on the football field. We thought it would be good for us to join forces and play for the Kidney Foundation. I had a great time playing with him.”

Whittingham’s team edged Sitake’s team last year, and the rookie coach had to belt out “Utah Man,” with help from his assistant coaches. Ty Detmer, Ed Lamb, and Ilaisa Tuiaki participated Monday, and Detmer said they appreciated the new format and camaraderie that exists between the staffs now that Mendenhall has moved on to Virginia. It wasn’t the first time Whittingham and Sitake have joined up on the links, and it won’t be the last, Sitake said. “I played with him a couple times earlier this summer. It is nice to compete together,” said the second-year coach who spent 10 seasons in Utah from 2005 to 2014. “We didn’t place in the top six or anything, but it was just nice to hang out and talk and for the most part we were able to talk about ideas. He is still a mentor to me, so it was really good for me to catch up with him, and I am glad he thought of doing it a different way to do it this year.”

Utah Football 2017 Utah director of football operations Jeff Rudi represented Whittingham at the luncheon and said the Utes will begin training camp Aug. 26. He said most of the players already are in town, but the staff still is waiting on a couple of late arrivals. Sitake took a more humorous approach. When he said, “We are not going to be very good,” the room erupted in laughter, and there was more hooting and clapping when he said, “We need a quarterback and we need a punter who can convert a fourth-and-19.” Source Link
