The Falcons are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The Runnin' Rebels are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the over is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Falcons last 5 home games and the over is 19-7-1 in Runnin' Rebels last 27 overall.
We know the Air Force Falcons are not a good basketball team, as they can't put tgoether consistent offense to save their life and their allowed field goal percentage is outside of the top 300. The UNLV Rebels are on quite a roll right now with a deep offense that can shoot you out of the gym most nights. The problem is UNLV hasn't cashed many tickets, especially on the road where its covered just three of its last 27 games. I don't care much about SU results, we care about covering the number. Hard to get behind the Rebels based on the trend, even if these two teams are lopsided. So, give me the home team and the points.
