Let’s explore each leg of this recommended Same-Game Parlay and find out why you should consider getting +128 odds on it.
Christopher Brooks Anytime TD
Brooks is part of a running back committee and only took two carries for 10 yards last game against Wyoming, but did find pay dirt in that one. He’s taken 38 carries for 204 yards (5.4 yards per carry) in four games and has recorded three touchdowns. This is a dream matchup for him to break out for the Cougars. Utah State has allowed a whopping 208.7 rushing yards per contest (115th out of 131 FBS teams), 5.5 rushing yards per carry (120th) and just allowed three rushing touchdowns in their loss to UNLV last week. He has the shortest odds on the board to score a touchdown.
BYU -10.5 Points (Alternate Spread)
These programs are seemingly going in very different directions. BYU is ranked #19 in the country and beat USF 50-21 in Week 1, Baylor 26-20 in Week 2, lost to Oregon on the road 41-20 in Week 3 and then beat Wyoming last Week 38-24. On the other hand, Utah State has gone 0-4 ATS and barely beat annual joke UConn 31-20 in Week 1 before suffering three consecutive losses to Alabama (55-0), FCS Weber State (35-7) and UNLV (34-24). BetQL is projecting BYU to win this game by 23 points, so getting the Cougars at -10.5 gives you quite a bit of safety.
Under 70.5 Points (Alternate Total)
The under is undefeated in Utah State’s games so far and the total is currently at 59.5. BetQL is projecting 61 total points to be scored. Like the alternate spread, going under 70.5 total points gives you a bit of extra safety.
