Why Bet the UNLV Rebels Odds at +10.5
The Rebels pounded San Jose State unmercifully in their 41-13 Week 5 win to cash in as 17-point home favorites as quarterback Armani Rogers completed 11 of 16 passes for 203 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while running back Lexington Thomas had a phenomenal game with 146 rushing yards and two scores on 18 carries. Rogers also ran for 71 yards and added two more scores on 17 carries and the UNLV defense forced three turnovers in the win.
Why Bet the San Diego State Aztecs Odds at -10.5
The Aztecs picked up a hard-fought 34-28 win over Northern Illinois last weekend as quarterback Christian Chapman completed 10 of 19 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns while running back Rashaad Penny rushed for 107 yards on 25 carries. The Aztecs defense picked off three passes in the win while recording one fumble recovery. San Diego State also got a stunning 96-yard kickoff return score from Juwan Washington and an 83-yard pick-six from Tariq Washington as one of his two interceptions in the game. Last but not least, the Aztecs also combined for four sacks in the win.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
While I really like UNLV quarterback Armani Rogers, I’m thinking San Diego State’s defense is going to be a bit too much for the Rebels to overcome in this contest, even though they’re on the road.
The Aztecs have gone a stellar 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 conference games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games. While UNLV is 5-2 ATS in their last seven games and 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a winning record, the rebels are also just 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against the Aztecs. I’m going with San Diego State to cover the chalk as a double-digit road fave and you should too!
Pick: San Diego State -10.5
