Sport: NCAAF | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800)
BYU (-154) @ pinnacle

This is an 8* play on BYU.

The BYU Cougars are 4-0, but their last game was by far the least impressive. They barely beat San Antonio, winning by a score of 27-20. This came after a long layoff, so perhaps the subpar performance was understandable. They head to Houston looking to remain undefeated, and they are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games. Houston scored plenty of points in their only game so far, but it was far from a flawless performance. Quarterback Clayton Tune threw for 319 yards and 2 TDs with a pair of INTs on 20-of-33 passing. His counterpart Zach Wilson comes in with over 1200 passing yards with 8 TDs and just one INT and a completion percentage over 81%. BYU ranks 6th nationally in scoring, and I don't see Houston keeping up on offense.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
