Sports-Odds.com chatted today with football handicapping expert Matt Foust to get the inside edge and a free Washington State vs UNLV pick. Kickoff for this ESPN Friday Night College Football Game is set for 9:00 PM EST at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. The Pac 12 suspended Cougars Deone Bucannon for the first half of the game today against the Rebels after a late hit the junior safety did last week against Eastern Washington wide receiver Greg Herd. The college football odds makers have the line on the Washington State Cougars (1-1) at -8 point road favorites against the UNLV Rebels (0-2).
“Mike Leach doesn’t have the offense completely cranked up at Washington State yet but he probably will not need to in this game,” stated College Football Picks Expert Matt Foust. “The Rebels, who have averaged 17.9 points per game over the last two seasons, mustered 27 points in a triple overtime scrap with Minnesota to open the season and last week they hung 14 on FCS school Northern Arizona in a three point home loss.”
The Cougars got crushed by BYU 30-6 in Week 1 and then WSU narrowly got by Eastern Washington 24-20 in Week 2. The Rebels lost a heart breaker 30-27 in Triple OT to Minnesota in Week 1 and then got beat by Northern Arizona 17-14 in Week 2. The Washington State vs UNLV spread on the Total is set at OVER/UNDER 55.5 points.
Foust went on to say: “I was kind of surprised to see the line on this game open at 11 and now is sitting at 8 points. The Cougars get to 2-1 tonight and they do so with ease.”
