Early Mountain West Football Odds
Fan Duel releases some early game odds
Let’s talk about some early odds
College football is now in double-digits, albeit at the high end, which means more and more game odds are being trickled out. Now that sports gambling is open to more states outside of Nevada means that there are more sportsbooks popping up around the country.
FanDuel is a well-known fantasy sports site for daily contest but they also are in the sportsbook business in certain states. They have released quite a few game odds so we go through and give and early take for these matchups with buy, sell, or wait and see.
Colorado State vs. Colorado in Denver (+12)
Wait and see: Colorado does have one of the best wide outs in the country in Laviska Shenault Jr. and the Rams defense has not been great so that could be a real issue. Colorado State QB Collin Hill could be a difference maker but what wide receiver will step up is a question. The near two-touchdown line seems a bit much for now.
Boise State vs. Florida State in Jacksonville (+3)
Buy Boise State: Even with Boise State not knowing who the quarterback will be as they take on the Seminoles in a “neutral game” in Jacksonville. However, Florida State also will have a new quarterback for its opener, and the Broncos defense will be really good.
San Diego State at Colorado State (+6.5)
Buy San Diego State: It might depend on Aztecs quarterback Ryan Agnew but it may not matter since running back Juwan Washington should be one of the best two backs in the conferece. The Rams Hill could make things interesting but doesn’t seem to be enough.
Hawaii at Boise State (-17.5)
Buy Hawaii: This line seems way over the top. Yes, the Warriors have to make the long trip to Boise, Idaho, but the offense the Warriors possess will score points against any team this year. Hawaii probably won’t win but it seems unlikely they will lose by more than two touchdowns.
