UNLV +9 3.3% Play / UNLV +290 0.5% Play
Wyomin has been one of the most misleading teams this season, and they are facing a UNLV team coming off a bye. Wyoming is shorthanded this week as 4 players went down in their loss last week at Tulsa. UNLV QB Armani Rogers is an under rated QB who can beat you with his feat, and I think it adds an added dynamic for Wyoming to stop. Rogers state, "I was watchign film over the bye week just to understand what I'm going against. I feel like with them playing man-on-man with our receivers, I believe in our receivers 100 percent. And they're a very agressive team so I feel like we can take shots." It won't take much as Wyoming's completing just 38% of their passes, and they're not much better running the ball.
UNLV has been outgained by 99 yards per game against awful opponents like Texas State, and Idaho. Wyoming's defense has kept them in games, but it's not as good as last year as they are giving up 120+ yards more than their opponents season average. Coach Sanchez hinted at coming out throwing the ball to set up the run instead of the opposite, which I think is a good approach against Wyoming as long as you take care of the ball. UNLV really needs a win if they want to go to a bowl game, and I think with the extra preparation for this game and the ability to look at Wyoming's tendencies they should have a good game plan to be in position to cover the 9 point spread and pull the upset.
