We take a stroll to Las Vegas to look at the early Mountain West football Week 11 odds.

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Week 11 is already here (I am shocked as well) and with it being early in the week it is our time to detour to the good city of Las Vegas to look at what the wise guys are saying about the Mountain West this week.

UTAH STATE AGGIES @ WYOMING COWBOYS
8:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Utah State (6-3) (2-3 A) W-2 -4.5 -6.5 n/a n/a n/a
Wyoming (4-5) (3-1 H) W-1 n/a n/a n/a

This Friday night tilt has plenty of intrigue with a pair of true freshman having amazing games last week. Wyoming running back Brian Hill set a league record for all-purpose yards, and fourth-string quarterback Kent Myers was nearly perfect against Hawaii. Yet, the equalizer is the defense and my initial pick is Utah State to cover and win by a touchdown. However, it is surprising that the line moved in favor of Utah State in such a short time.

AIR FORCE FALCONS @ UNLV REBELS
4:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Air Force (6-2) (2-2 A) W-2 -4.5 -6 n/a n/a n/a
UNLV (2-7) (2-2 H) L-2 n/a n/a n/a

Seeing this line open at 4.5-points in favor of Air Force seemed low, and the gambling public agreed by laying some money on the Falcons to push the line to six. Even with that line movement I am still sticking with my pledge to never take UNLV.

IDAHO VANDALS @ SAN DIEGO STATE AZTECS
6:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Idaho (1-7) (0-4 A) L-1 n/a n/a n/a
San Diego State (4-4) (3-0 H) L-1 -21 -21.5 n/a n/a n/a

San Diego State will win and cover. Nothing more needs to be said since the Aztecs are playing Idaho. Actually, I want to see the Aztecs dominate a team from start to finish.

BOISE STATE BRONCOS @ NEW MEXICO LOBOS
7:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Boise State (6-2) (2-2 A) W-3 -14.5 -17.5 n/a n/a n/a
New Mexico (3-5) (0-4 H) W-1 n/a n/a n/a

New Mexico really is a tricky team for Boise State and head coach Bryan Harsin says as much, but really gives a back handed compliment.

Boise State should win and eek out a cover.

HAWAII WARRIORS @ COLORADO STATE RAMS
7:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Hawaii (2-7) (0-3 A) L-2 n/a n/a n/a
Colorado State (8-1) (4-0 H) W-7 -17.5 -17.5 n/a n/a n/a

Hawaii can't score touchdowns and Colorado State has Dee Hart who can score touchdowns. Even if the Rams are without star wide out Rashard Higgins (shoulder) the Rams should blowout Hawaii.

SAN JOSE STATE SPARTANS @ FRESNO STATE BULLDOGS
10:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
San Jose State (3-5) (1-3 A) L-2 n/a n/a n/a
Fresno State (3-6) (2-2 H) L-3 -4 -1.5 n/a n/a n/a

This is a rivalry game and based off of last year's result which ended Fresno State's run at a BCS game one would think that the Bulldogs want revenge. The only problem is that Fresno State is struggling this year and will need a win over San Jose State to hope they go bowling. This line rightfully dropped from four to 1.5 points for Fresno State, but San Jose State is a more complete team and will win and cover.
