Week 9 Mountain West Football Betting Challenge
A head to head matchup between the readers and myself
Who is the better bettor?
Now that you guys have chosen which bet you’re going to make, let’s take a look at the bets involved in this weeks challenge.
Here’s a reminder of how this is going to work for the rest of the season. The odds post will come out each week and I’ll make what I believe to be the best bets for each game. Four of the bets will be picked and we’ll tweet out a poll for you guys to choose which bet you believe is most likely to win. I’ll pick one of the other bets and each week we’ll recap the head to head as well as how each team did at the sportsbook. In the event of a cancellation of a game that was bet on, the next highest chosen bet will be made in its place.

The poll has ended and the bets have been placed. You guys ended up choosing the Nevada -13.5 against UNLV. And I decided to go with San Diego State -7 against Utah State.
This is probably the pick I would go with most out any of this weeks picks. Nevada let Wyoming come back last week before winning in OT. I don’t expect the same thing to happen this week. The passing attack that Nevada runs should disrupt the Rebels defense.
I’m not sure what exactly is going on with the UNLV Rebels. Is San Diego State that good or is UNLV that bad? I’m leaning towards the UNLV is bad side. They couldn’t get out of their own way last week and I expect more of the same this week.
San Diego state -7.5
This is an interesting pick. The line has stayed relatively the same, but the odds have been lowered on it. Money seems to be coming in on the Aggies and I’m not sure why. The Aztecs defense doesn’t seem to have lost a step and the offense seems to have taken a step forward from last year.
Utah State struggled last week. They were shut out in the first half last week and barely managed to get over 200 yards of offense against the Broncos. The Aztecs defense is arguably better than the Broncos defense. The question for this game will be whether the Aztecs offense can step it up and I think they will.
