The line on the UNLV-Fresno State game was coming in at -30.5.  Gambling911.com has the line at -25, so there is certainly an overlay.  BetUS offers a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $2500).


Despite Fresno State entering the AP Top 25, their power rating is still not allowing them to crack the top 50.  Wyoming, South Dakota State, even the 1-2 Washington Huskies have stronger ratings.  If Washington were hosting the Bulldogs this week they'd be a -9 favorite.  The Bulldogs rating will tick up over these next two weeks as they face UNLV and Hawaii with their combined record of 1-6.  Then we'll see if Wyoming really deserves to be rated higher than Fresno State.

The Bulldogs kept it close against Oregon in Week 2 and defeated a top-15 UCLA team in thrilling fashion in Week 4.

The line on this game made it to -30 by Tuesday after opening at -31.

As we previously noted, it's difficult to see UNLV go 0-4 Straight Up and 3-1 Against The Spread.  At the same time, Fresno State stands to go 5-0 Against The Spread, which they are worthy of with what will likely be their 4-1 record Straight Up.  We say wait and see on both teams.  UNLV 3-1 ATS, we'll be looking for oddsmakers to make some serious adjustments in Week 5.  Fresno State going 5-0 ATS we would anticipate Hawaii covering against them their next game.
