Early Mountain West Football Odds


UNLV at Fresno State (-19)

Buy UNLV: This is again a lot of points for Fresno State to be giving to UNLV. Assuming Rebels QB Armani Rogers is fully healthy, it is tough to assume them losing to the Bulldogs in blowout fashion. The Bulldogs defense will be formidable but not sure if that offense can score enough points to get an easy win.

Boise State at BYU (+2)

Buy Boise State: BYU does expect to be better in 2019 but a lingering issue with the Cougars offense is not getting enough attention and that is Zach Wilson’s health. The quarterback is the future for the Cougars but he had offseason shoulder surgery and has not thrown this offseason. The game is late enough in the year for that to not be an issue, but the Broncos should just be better overal.

Wyoming at Boise State (-16.5)

Wait and see: This basically falls in the line of too many points to be given for Boise State. The Wyoming defense is great and should be able to slow down the Broncos for a bit but their offense is not expected to be all that great. So, this game could be one where the Cowboys defense does well enough to keep the Broncos off the board a bit but their offense is not really going to perform enough to score.

Colorado State at Wyoming (-8.5)

Buy Colorado State: Out of all of the odds listed this one seems the most unique. Neither of these teams are really expected to compete for a bowl berth this year which makes this line even more interesting. This game will be strength vs. strength with the Rams offense vs. Cowboys defense and vice versa with weakness vs. weakness. By virtue of the matchups this game should very likely be a one score contest.

Boise State at Colorado State (+18.5)

Wait and see: This one might be based off of history since Boise State has not yet to lose to Colorado State in the Mountain West. The Broncos should be the better team this year and very likely contend for the conference title. However, this game is on the road and the nearly three-touchdown advantage is just a bit too much to take Boise State to cover and win.
