5 Unit BYU/Arizona Las Vegas Bowl BLOWOUT on Arizona -3

Arizona is extremely happy with their Las Vegas Bowl draw.  This team was flaunting their Las Vegas Bowl caps after beating rival Arizona State 31-10 in their regular season finale.  BYU is not quite as happy as Arizona to be playing in this game.  The Cougars were hoping to make a BCS bowl game this season, but two blowout road losses to Utah and TCU had BYU snapping back to reality.  The Cougars really aren’t the team everyone expected them to be, and they will struggle against a tough Pac-10 opponent in Arizona Saturday.  Arizona is scoring 37.1 points/game and allowing just 21.3 points/game.  This team has played a much tougher schedule than BYU this season, and it will pay major dividends in this Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday.  BYU is 4-20 ATS after a 2 game road trip since 1992.  BYU is 1-7 ATS after the first month of the season this season.  The odds makers have had BYU overrated all season, and they are getting too much respect again Saturday as Arizona should be at least a 7-point favorite in this ball game.  Cash in with Arizona as the favorite.
