Already in week 11, here's a quick guide as to how to bet Mountain West games.
Well last week went rough, there were a couple fluky wins and some heavy derps. But this is why they have the saying "Any Given Day," which is a gamblers worst enemy.
Last Week: 2-3
11/10/12, 12:30 PM Air Force at San Diego State (-7), O/U-60.5-- OH NO, SDSU IS PLAYING A HOME GAME BEFORE NIGHTTIME. Not to worry, Air Force just lost to Army and SDSU beat Boise State in what has been termed "a program defining win." I'm going with momentum.
My Pick-SDSU covers easily- Air Force, you lost to Army. You are not winning this game. Bet sharpies for that permanence of a statement.
11/10/12, 12:30 PM Wyoming at New Mexico, PICK 'EM, O/U-57-- This is a difficult game to pick. On one hand Wyoming got their offense back, while the Lobos lost it at UNLV. On the other hand, Wyoming has nothing to stop New Mexico's offense, whatsoever. That to me makes the difference.
My Pick-New Mexico- FOOTBAW BAWB is at home. Therefore the Lobos win with fan support. Bet a Starburst.
11/10/12, 4:00 PM UNLV (-3) at Colorado State, O/U-54-- The Rams are spiraling downward, probably hoping for this season to end. UNLV is coming off a great win versus New Mexico and they have their offense clicking. Advantage: Rebels.
My Pick-UNLV- A win here gives the Rebels 3 on the season, and it should be enough to save Hauck's job for another season. Bet Ethel M's chocolate.
11/10/12, 4:00 PM Boise State (-29) at Hawaii, O/U-52-- Normally I would say that this is too big of spread, but against this year's Hawaii team, it really isn't.
My Pick-Boise State covers- It would be very characteristic of both of this year's teams if the final score was 30-0 BSU. Bet some macadamia nuts.
11/10/12, 7:35 PM Fresno State (-1) at Nevada, O/U-68.5-- This game can be characterized by two things. One Nevada's atrocious excuse for a defense, and two, Nevada's spotless (though not this year) record at home. The spread is very close because of Mackey Stadium's environment, but 2 of 3 Nevada losses came at home!
My Pick- Fresno State covers- Nevada had a bye week last week, but is that Air Force loss still lingering? Bet some cheese.
