New Mexico Bowl:  UTEP-BYU Spread

Since opening earlier at BYU -12.5, the spread on the UTEP-BYU game seems to be settling in at -11.5 coming into Saturday’s New Mexico Bowl.  Betting action on this game was relatively even though nearly 90 percent of the money line action was on Brigham Young.  The total of 50.5 was getting more than 80 percent betting action on the OVER coming into Saturday.

Andrea Adelson of ESPN.com remarks:  “The two former WAC rivals are playing for the first time since 1998. BYU is 3-2 in its past five bowl appearances, and this is the first season since 2005 that the Cougars are not going to post a 10-win season. UTEP is making its first bowl appearance since 2005 and playing its fourth bowl game since 2000. The Miners have dropped four straight bowl games.”

There is little trending data of any significance as it applies to this game and no recent face offs between these two teams, thus making it a difficult matchup in which to handicap.
