The Line: UNLV Rebels +21 -- Over/Under:
The Boise State Broncos will travel to play the UNLV Rebels this weekend in a Mountain West Showdown.
The UNLV Rebels are coming off of a bye week and lost their last game to Fresno State. The UNLV offense is averaging 28 points per game with 370.6 yards per game. Quarterback Kurt Palandech leads the UNLV offense with 447 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions. Keith Whitely leads the rushing attack for UNLV with 471 yards and 2 touchdowns. Devontae Boyd is the leading receiver for UNLV with 374 yards and 5 touchdowns. The UNLV defense is giving up 27.4 points per game with 419.6 yards per game. The UNLV defense has 6 sacks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 10 interceptions this season. UNLV will have their hands full with Boise State but they are still fighting to gain bowl eligibility and are at home so they have a chance.
The Boise State Broncos are coming off of a win against Wyoming last week. The Boise State offense is averaging 38 points per game with 455.7 yards per game. Quarterback Brett Rypien leads the Boise State offense with 1567 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. Jeremy McNichols is the leading rusher for Boise State with 651 yards and 13 touchdowns. Thomas Sperbeck is the leading receiver for Boise State with 766 yards and 7 touchdowns. The Boise State defense has given up 17.3 points per game with 265.5 yards per game. Boise State’s defense has 21 sacks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 14 interceptions. Boise State can’t afford to slip up against an inferior opponent if they want a spot in the Mountain West Championship game.
Boise State is 4-4 ATS in their last 8 games. The under is 4-1 in Boise State’s last 5 conference games. UNLV is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games. UNLV is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 5-1 in UNLV’s last 6 conference games.
I think Boise State will be able to handle UNLV on offense and defense and should win this game by a couple of touchdowns.
