Week 13 Mountain West football betting lines: Hurry and get in your picks

Get your picks in for the final week of Mountain West football.

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Week 13 has a surprisingly large amount of games with two non-conference conferences games and we have one game that kicks off Friday afternoon. Maybe next year, I'll actually keep track of my picks with a running total.

3:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Boise State (7-4) (3-2 A) L-2 -10 -7.5 37% 3% 51%
San Jose State (5-6) (3-2 H) W-1 60.0 58 63% 97% 49%

The last time San Jose State played on Black Friday they ruined Fresno State's perfect season. Not as much on the line, but the Spartans can become bowl eligible. The line did drop from 10 to 7.5 points in favor of Boise State, and I am taking the Broncos to just cover this line in a close matchup.

2:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
UNLV (3-8) (1-4 A) L-2 -3 -3 81% 31% 0%
Wyoming (1-10) (1-4 H) L-4 59.5 59.5 19% 69% 100%

Both teams are looking ahead to next year and the weather is expected to be cold but no precipitation in Laramie on Saturday. The Rebels are a small favorite in this game at three points and they will win by more than that since they are getting quarterback Blake Decker back in the lineup.

3:30 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
BYU (8-3) (2-3 A) W-1 -2 -3 74% 12% 0%
Utah State (6-5) (5-0 H) W-1 55.5 55 26% 88% 100%

The battle for the Old Wagon Wheel is in play as Utah State host BYU, the Aggies have the wheel this year. Chuckie Keeton is likely getting the start for Senior Day and one last crack at BYU. This game is at three points and should be a close contest. Both have great players on the defensive side of the ball and good quarterback play, but BYU has an edge their in Tanner Mangum. The key will be who can run the ball better on Saturday. I am going with the homer pick and taking Utah State to win and cover this in a close one.

10:45 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Nevada (6-5) (2-3 A) L-1 51.0 50.5 11% 88% 99%
San Diego State (8-3) (4-1 H) W-7 -14 -17.5 89% 12% 1%

San Diego State has motivation to go undefeated in conference play and hosting a solid Nevada team will not be easy. Yet, Las Vegas has them as a huge 17.5-point favorite against the Wolf Pack. Nevada is a sneaky good team at times, but they will not be able to beat the Aztecs but the Wolf Pack will make it interesting and cover.

10:15 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Air Force (8-3) (2-3 A) W-5 -10.5 -10 79% 2% 86%
New Mexico (6-5) (4-2 H) L-1 53.0 53 21% 98% 14%

This will be literally a two-hour football game with these two ground attacks. New Mexico is out of the Divisional race but Air Force wants to win to be able to host the conference title game. The 10 point line seems quite a bit in favor of the Falcons, but they have been incorporating a passing game to their offense. Even with that, New Mexico will hang tough and cover the 10 points but not get the victory.

9:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Colorado State (6-5) (3-1 A) W-3 -8.5 -10 53% 2% 26%
Fresno State (3-8) (2-3 H) L-1 58.0 58.5 47% 98% 74%

Fresno State is playing for pride and their last game under both offensive and defensive coordinators who are reportedly being let go after this game. Ten points seems low for Colorado State to be favored by so lets take the Rams to win in a blowout victory.

11:00 PM Game Time Record Line Betting Trend
Teams Win-Loss Streak Open Current Spread Money O/U
Louisiana-Monroe (1-10) (0-7 A) L-9 -0.5 n/a n/a n/a
Hawaii (2-10) (2-4 H) L-9 n/a n/a n/a

All week this game had no line and then it looks like enough people were betting on Louisiana-Monroe for some reason and the War Hawks are a mere 1/2 point favorite over Hawaii at home. This game will be ugly as both teams are bad but lets take Hawaii to win their final home game of the year.
