Mountain West football dives back into non-conference play between Fresno State and BYU, and there is one game on Friday night.

AIR FORCE FALCONS @ BOISE STATE BRONCOS
9:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Air Force (7-3) (1-3 A) W-4 57.0 55 78% 52% 68%
Boise State (7-3) (4-1 H) L-1 -16 -11 22% 48% 32%

This game Friday night will be very, very interesting. Last year, the Falcons defense forced seven turnovers to upset Boise State. This game is at home for the Broncos and they are coming off of a bad loss to New Mexico. This line dropped from 16 to 11 in favor of the Broncos. Boise State struggles against triple-option attacks but look for them to win but not cover.

FRESNO STATE BULLDOGS @ BRIGHAM YOUNG COUGARS
3:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Fresno State (3-7) (1-4 A) W-1 56.0 56 0% n/a n/a
BYU (7-3) (5-0 H) L-1 -24.5 -26 100% n/a n/a

This is the one non-conference game of the week and this has every chance to be a blowout, and the folks in Las Vegas have BYU a 26-point favorite over Fresno State. The large victory over Hawaii could lead to false confidence for the Bulldogs this week, so go with BYU to cover and win big.

NEVADA WOLF PACK @ UTAH STATE AGGIES
3:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Nevada (6-4) (2-2 A) W-3 56.0 54.5 82% n/a n/a
Utah State (5-5) (4-0 H) L-2 -14 -14 18% n/a n/a

Can Utah State rebound from another loss? The offense seems to get back on track but the defense which has been its best unit has failed them in recent games. Seeing the Aggies as a two-touchdown favorite seems like a lot, and probably too much. They are at home but my pick is Utah State winning but not covering against Nevada.

COLORADO STATE RAMS @ NEW MEXICO LOBOS
5:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Colorado State (5-5) (2-1 A) W-2 -2 -2 75% n/a n/a
New Mexico (6-4) (4-1 H) W-2 54.0 57 25% n/a n/a

This game is huge for New Mexico who can win the Mountain Division and despite upsetting Boise State last week they are a two-point home underdog to Colorado State. The Lobos match up well against Boise State which is why they won, but do they against Colorado State? The Rams have a passing attack that can make plays but their running game is not quite as good as the Broncos. However, lets ride with the Lobos to win and cover.

SAN DIEGO STATE AZTECS @ UNLV REBELS
10:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
San Diego State (7-3) (3-2 A) W-6 -11 -13.5 81% n/a n/a
UNLV (3-7) (2-3 H) L-1 55.0 54.5 19% n/a n/a

San Diego State is rolling and seeing them a double-digit road favorite is a lot of points, but UNLV has not been able to close out opponents when close. The Aztecs are playing very well and they will win and just barely cover against the Rebels. UNLV does have a solid front seven so this will be a challenge for the Aztecs running game.

SAN JOSE STATE SPARTANS @ HAWAII WARRIORS
11:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
San Jose State (4-6) (1-4 A) L-2 -9 -10 94% n/a n/a
Hawaii (2-9) (2-3 H) L-8 55.5 54.5 6% n/a n/a

San Jose State must win this game to become one step closer to being bowl eligible and to keep this short they will win and cover against a reeling Hawaii team.
