UNLV vs. Fresno State Line Movement
This line has seen plenty of movement since opening — especially from the earliest books to market. Fresno was all the way down at -11.5 when lines were first released, but was quickly bet through the two-touchdown mark to -14.5. From there, the line made it up to 16, and even 16.5, before being bet back to 14.5 on Thursday. Fresno has drawn 64% of money on 53% of bets.
And despite bettors being split on the total (51% on the under), the number has dropped from 55 to 53 as nearly all the money (95%) has hit the under. — Danny Donahue
Stuckey: Should Bettors Expect a Blowout?
This has blowout written all over it as the Bulldogs look to bounce back from a bad conference loss against an inferior opponent at home. It’s also a sleepy spot for UNLV, which earned one of the program’s biggest wins last week at Vanderbilt.
Not only will UNLV have to re-focus after that enormous upset, but the Rebels are traveling for the second weekend in a row and are on short rest. UNLV will also likely be without quarterback Armani Rogers, meaning freshman Kenyon Oblad will get his second straight start.
The offense just isn’t as explosive with Oblad, who is nowhere near the caliber of runner that Rogers is in the RPO game.
In almost identical amout of minutes against FBS opponents this year, the UNLV offense is averaging a yard fewer on the ground with Oblad under center.
UNLV, who ran it 51 times against only 16 passes last week, will have to try to methodically grind drives with its backs, which should keep the clock moving when UNLV is on offense.
