Sportsbook Report: Portland Pilots (+10.5) vs. BYU Cougars

By Wally Jeter

You know I'm rolling with the Pilots again today. They are receiving 10.5 points on the road against BYU. A team they beat last year in a classic triple OT thriller in Portland (even though they were rolled in Provo....). But no Matt Carlino this year (transfer to Marquette). Without Carlino who always dominated the Pilots (I know Haws had 48 points at the Portland home game but who's counting), the matchup is a little more even. I will take the Pilots and the 10.5 points, not sure if they will win but I believe they will cover. If the Pilots can somehow win this game (assuming without Kevin Bailey), no one can argue they're not legit......
