Point Spread: -4.50 | -112.00 BYU (Away)
Houston finally played a game after many cancellations and postponements early this season. Even though Houston impressed in that season opening victory, they played a Tulane team that has struggled badly on defense early this season. Now Houston has to face a BYU team that has absolutely been locked in on defense early this season. Brigham Young has allowed an average of only 11 points per game in their 4 games this season. On that note, this is another big edge for BYU in this match-up as they have played 4 games already this season and have had plenty of time to make adjustments on both sides of the ball. Keep in mind Houston has played just one game and they take a big step up in terms of level of competition this week as they face a ranked BYU team. Brigham Young is averaging 44 points per game and is going to test the Houston defense in a way that Tulane was unable to. BYU is led by QB Zach Wilson who has thrown for 1,241 yds with an 81% completion rate and a 8-1 TD-INT ratio. Wilson also has 6 rushing touchdowns too. Per our computer math model this game may be close early but BYU eventually wears down Houston and wins this game by a double digit margin. Lay the points with Brigham Young in what should be a road rout in late night action Friday.
