As a 30-year resident of Las Vegas, I am always loyal to our home teams, but I have more loyalty to my wallet. Being so close to Thanksgiving, I feel it appropriate to talk turkey.
This just might be the worst UNLV squad I have seen in decades. They have already suffered two beatings at the hands of San Diego State, 34-6 and Nevada, 37-19. By the way, they failed to cover both contests.
They really don’t possess and physicality and are once again going to be manhandled here. They brought in Marcus Arroyo to replace Tony Sanchez at head coach. Well, at least Sanchez squads showed some heart and some fight. This year’s version has very little of either.
Fresno State has won and covered the last two meetings in this series, by a combined, 104-30. The Bulldogs showed an enormous amount of grit, as they bounced back from an opening season loss to Hawaii, to shellack Colorado State last week, 38-7 as a 2.5-point underdog.
With little threat of a pass rush and a lax secondary, look for improved Bulldogs quarterback Jake Haener to have a career day here against a Rebels defense that has gotten smoked for 30 PPG over their last four outings.
Fresno State is 15-5-1 ATS the last 21 on the road, 23-11-1 ATS the last 35 in conference play, and 33-16-2 the last 51 overall. Any point spread under two touchdowns is an early Christmas present. Fresno State.
