UNLV is able to run the ball decently and will have to control the line of scrimmage if they want to beat Colorado State.
UNLV is 3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games. The over is 4-0 in UNLV’s last 4 games overall. The over is also 4-0 in UNLV’s last 4 conference games. Colorado State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November. Colorado State is 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games against a team with a losing record. The over is 7-3 in Colorado State’s last 10 conference games. The home team is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 meetings.
Both of these teams are coming into this game following a win, but both teams are having a not so good season. I expect Colorado State to come out and win this game, with home field playing an important factor in this one. Colorado State is the slightly better team and I am picking them to win this one.
