Randy’s Free Pick
The Boise State Broncos are the better team and are getting more love because they're at home, but this line is a bit disrespectful toward UNLV. The UNLV Runnin' Rebels have more than held their own this season, and that includes winning on the road by an average of 1.9 points and in the underdog role by an average of 0.5 points. Give me the free buckets.
