PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Wisky is a big fave as they are about every week.  However, they have failed to cover both times this year, and I think this may be the third.  BYU has a legit front 7 capable of keeping it close.  BYU has already faced AZ and Cal.  Clearly that is different than facing Wisconsin, but it is better than D2 teams.  I have no interest in laying this many points on a team who has failed to cover big #’s yet this year.  However, I am not bold enough to fade them either.  Pub is all over Wisky at 65%+ as usual.
