2013 Mountain West odds: Boise State is runaway favorite

5Dimes has posted their odds for the Mountain West season, and it is not all that close.

Brian Losness-US PRESSWIRE

Complete odds to the 2013 Mountain West football season are out, and the folks over at 5Dimes feel that Boise State is the runaway favorite to win the Mountain West. Fresno State is relatively close to Boise State, but after that San Jose State, San Diego State and Utah State round out the top five.

The shear difference between second and third is a lot, and implies that Boise State and Fresno State are destined to play in the inaugural Mountain West title game.

Here are the complete Mountain West 2013 odds:

Boise State +110
Fresno State +255
San Jose State +860
San Diego State +975
Utah State +1000
Nevada +1700
Air Force +2300
Wyoming +4500
Colorado State +6500
UNLV +8500
New Mexico +9000
Hawaii +12500

As for a good underdog to pick, San Diego State or San Jose State make a smart choice if one wants to go outside of the box. Nevada is an interesting pick that if things fall the right way could be a dark horse team to possibly win the Mountain West.

At the other end of spectrum Hawaii is a distant, distant, distant last place, and that is probably the right call. New Mexico at 11th seems to be a bit too low, but they are bunched together with UNLV and Colorado State.

These odds seem to be spot on, at least the order, with the exception of New Mexico being too low. Also, perhaps Air Force could be a bit high, but in the end the Falcons probably will end up in the middle of the pack.
