NCAA Over/Under Win Total wagering for UNLV Rebels

Aug 28, 2012 6:25 AM

UNLV Rebels 

(Note: GT sports editor Mark Mayer concludes the 35 college football teams on the LVH sports book list of OVER/UNDER win totals leading up to the Aug. 30 season openers. No. 35: UNLV Rebels).

UNLV Rebels Over/Under 3 wins

Pleading the case:

• Last year we believed in OVER 2½, but were undone when the Rebels somehow lost to Southern Utah in Game 2.

• The Rebels are treating Minnesota like they are Wisconsin. UNLV has managed just 2 victories in 6 of the last 8 seasons.

• There’s really no reason UNLV can’t go at least 6-6 in arguably the weakest conference in Division I, the “Mountain Worst.”

• After their loss Oct. 24 at Boise State, the Rebels finish with five games they are capable of winning.

• A QB (redshirt freshman Nick Sherry) desperately needs to surface and some semblance of a defense.

Prediction: OVER 3. If UNLV doesn’t lose Game 2 to Northern Arizona, they should win at least 3 games or at worse a push.
