Unlv over NEW MEX­ICO by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Given the chance, there weren’t many teams that would miss tak­ing a left into Al­bu­querque (read: sure win) from 2008 through 2014 as the Lo­bos posted an 18-66 SU record dur­ing that span. How­ever, Bob Davie made a few turns him­self the last few years, notch­ing a 16-10 record along with a pair of bowl ap­pear­ances. How­ever, thanks to a cur­rent 5-game los­ing skein, the Lo­bos are back in the MWC Moun­tain base­ment and show no signs of mov­ing on up as the of­fense has hit a wall (and not the one that Trump wants to build), av­er­ag­ing just over 10 PPG since Oc­to­ber. Davie’s dudes have been money in LHG’s (7-4 SU and 9-2 ATS, in­clud­ing 5-0 SUATS when not dogs of 6 or more points) but that’s negated by a 2-6 ATS log in their last eight ver­sus sub .500 con­fer­ence foes. Even their 8-4 ATS se­ries ad­van­tage is off­set by the Rebs’ 7-2 ATS log in week­day con­fer­ence games. So with our ma­chine on a rare fritz, we’ll take mat­ters into our own hands and lean to the hard-try­ing vis­i­tor who still can hit the al­leys – as op­posed to the dis­ap­pointed host who will be home for the hol­i­days. Satur­day, Novem­ber 18
