Sep/23/2023 is one of only two states - the other being Hawaii - that does not offer any type of gambling.  This includes no state lottery.  As such, DraftKings will not operate here or take any bets from Utah residents or visitors.  You do have options as BetUS is here to save the day for those 18 and up.


UCLA @ Utah 

Utah star quarterback Cam Rising will not start against No. 22 UCLA on Saturday as he continues his recovery from an ACL tear he sustained in the Rose Bowl, sources told ESPN.  The oddsmakers had already factored this likelihood into the line as there was little or no change in the number Saturday morning.  Rising has yet to play this season for Utah.

The line moved from -5 to -3.5 on Friday.  The total remained at 51 or 51.5 depending on the book. Action was steady for both the spread and total.

Utah @ Baylor Week 4

No. 12 Utah will come to Waco as a -7.5 road favorite after opening at -6.5.  The Utes hope to have some of their injured players back for this one, including perhaps quarterback Cameron Rising.  These teams are meeting for the first time ever.

The Utes (1-0) beat Florida 24-11 last week in what was expected to be competitive matchup.  Utah was a -5.5 favorite.  They were 3-0 coming into this game.

Baylor was stunned by Texas State 42-31 last week.

Utah is rated No. 15 on Sagarin (83.69) and Baylor No. 45 (75.68).  The home field advantage here is 2.90.  We get a line of Utah -5.11, suggesting a 2.5 overlay.

Utah Utes Betting Preview (2023)

A third straight Pac-12 title is within reach for Utah and coach Kyle Whittingham, believes.

If (Cameron) Rising is healthy, the ceiling is a third straight Pac-12 championship, which has not been accomplished in the championship game era (2011-present). If Rising isn’t healthy or is delayed in his return, the expectations change against a rugged schedule that begins with hosting Florida and traveling to Baylor. But for now, the assumption is he will be good to go.

If Rising is not ready, and Rose proves competent, big things can still happen because there are a ton of veterans, most of whom have played in at least one if not two Rose Bowls. However it shakes out, eight wins is the floor, with 10 or even 11 wins feeling like the ceiling as the opener looms.

The Utes were favored at -140 to win UNDER 8.5 regular season games.  They pay out $110 on every $100 bet to win more than that.
