7* Thursday CFB ARZ/UTSA
Arizona vs. UTSA,
09/04/2014 20:00 EDT,
Score: 26 - 23
Point Spread: +7½/-105 UTSA
We backed UTSA last week in their upset victory over Houston and we're going right back to the well on Thursday night. We pegged the Roadrunners as a BET ON team to start the season and we will continue to do so until the market catches up.
The Roadrunners returned 20 starters to their lineup this season and that's clearly paid dividends in the early going. UTSA's defense limited Houston to just 208 yards of total offense. Obviously stopping Arizona will be a much tougher task than stopping Houston, especially after the Wildcats put up over 700 yards against UNLV last week, but we think UTSA is up to the task.
The Roadrunners traveled to Arizona last season and weren't treated too kindly, getting pounded 38-13 by the hosts. This is a game that they've had circled on their calendars for some time as they look to extract a measure of revenge. Arizona allowed 371 yards of offense to a weak UNLV squad last week, so there's definitely hope for UTSA in this one.
The Wildcats are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win of 20+ points. The Roadrunners are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
