BYU at Arizona 2018 Season Week 1 Early Line Released
BYU takes on Arizona on September 1st, 2018.
How big of an underdog is BYU vs. Arizona?
BYU opens up the 2018 football season in 222 days down in Tucson, Arizona against the Arizona Wildcats.
Don’t be phased by that large number ’till kickoff. We already have early betting action on the BYU-Arizona game and more than a dozen week one college football games to kick off the 2018 college football season.
The early betting line from 5Dimes has BYU as a 7-1/2 point underdog against Arizona.
Not surprising that BYU is an underdog, but it might be a surprise that the Cougars are only a touchdown underdog. Coming off of a 4-9 season has Cougar fans questioning the future, but the sharks in Vegas still feel BYU is within striking distance of an Arizona team that boasts first-year head coach Kevin Sumlin from Texas A&M, and one of the nation’s best quarterbacks in Khalil Tate.
The last time BYU traveled to play Arizona in Tucson was 12 years ago in a season-opener. The Cougars lost that game in 2006 but then went on to finish the season 11-2, one of the best seasons in BYU football history.
BYU & Arizona have played a total of 23 times dating back to their days as WAC rivals. The Wildcats hold a 10-12-1 advantage over BYU with the Cougars getting the upper hand in the last meeting back in 2016 in Glendale.
