The UNLV Rebels takes on the BYU Cougars Saturday and Dave Price suggests putting 1 unit on the Rebels to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at BYU –6, but the line has since risen to BYU –7.

Price writes: UNLV is far too good to be catching this many points so we'll gladly take advantage. UNLV is 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS versus BYU the past 3 seasons. UNLV is 7-0 ATS in a road game where the total is 135 to 139.5 over the last 3 seasons, 29-8 ATS in road games after having won 3 of their last 4 games since 1997, and 19-6 ATS in road games after playing 2 consecutive games as a home favorite since 1997. The Rebs are 14-3 ATS versus very good teams outscoring their opponents by 8+ points/game over the last 2 seasons. UNLV crushed BYU by 29 last month and will win this one outright as well.

Public betting information shows that of the 2,788 wagers currently placed on tonight’s game, 61% of bettors like the BYU Cougars to cover the 7-point spread against the UNLV Rebels.
