2013 college football betting lines: Mountain West over/under win totals

5Dimes released their complete win total odds for the 2013 college football season. Sit back and take a look at the Mountain West teams are projected to fare.


The over/under win totals for every single FBS team has been revealed by 5Dimes. Last week, Boise State's number was revealed at 10.5 and now we have the entire league. In our live video cast on Friday night we discussed the best bets for over and under, and below is the full gauntlet of odds to view.

Remember, these are for regular season wins only.

AIR FORCE: Over 6.5 (+120) Under 6.5 (-160)
BOISE STATE: Over 10.5 (+120) Under 10.5 (-160)
COLORADO STATE: Over 5.5 (-195) Under 5.5 (+155)
FRESNO STATE: Over 10.5 (+120) Under 10.5 (-160)
HAWAII: Over 3.5 (-130) Under 3.5 (-110)
NEVADA: Over 6.5 (+140) Under 6.5 (-180)
NEW MEXICO: Over 4.5 (+140) Under 4.5 (-180)
SAN DIEGO STATE: Over 7.5 (+140) Under 7.5 (-180)
SAN JOSE STATE: Over 7.5 (+100) Under 7.5 (-140)
UNLV: Over 4.5 (EVEN) Under 4.5 (-140)
UTAH STATE: Over 7.5 (-150) Under 7.5 (+110)
WYOMING: Over 5.5 (-175) Under 5.5 (+135)

A few that stand out to me are Fresno State at 10.5, both Utah State and San Jose State at 7.5 and then New Mexico at 4.5. Vegas is extremely high on Fresno State and to take the over they would lose just one game, and the consensus is them falling to Boise State. Their schedule is very favorable with their other possible loses being Rutgers -- who they get at home -- and going on the road to San Jose State. However, getting to 11 wins will be a tall task for a team that is two years removed from winning just four games.

San Jose State and Utah State at 7.5 is odd and understandable at the same time. Each school is bringing in a new head coach -- Utah State promoted within, while San Jose State reached outside of the program -- they are both transitioning into a tougher league but each return their very good quarterbacks. Both will come close if not get to the over, but based on the teams history, Utah State makes the better choice since they have been better over the past few years while San Jose State burt on the scence last year.

My best bet on the list is taking Hawaii and the under at 3.5 wins (sorry Hawaii fans). The Warriors could seriously start out going 0-5 since they play USC, Oregon State, Nevada, Fresno State and San Jose State. I see four possible wins on the schedule against UNLV, Colorado State, Army and Wyoming.

As for my best pick, it easily has to be San Diego State at 7.5. They have a very good chance at being 5-1 at the midway point, and the projected loss is to Ohio State. Oregon State is a possible loss in Week 2, but that is in San Diego. If The Aztecs do loss to Oregon State then getting to eight wins might be tough as their back end of their schedule is tough with games against Fresno State, Boise State and San Diego State; the other three should be wins.
