College Football Betting Trends

Air Force

The Falcons are 0-7 ATS in their last seven road games versus a team with a losing home record. The over is 5-0 in the last five Air Force games on field turf.

UNLV

The Rebels are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games versus the Falcons. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings at UNLV.

Prediction:

These are two fairly poor teams, but at least Air Force is showing signs of life. The last team the Falcons played at UNLV, it won by 27 points. While Air Force hasn't won a road game yet this season, UNLV has lost its last two contests by a combined 67 points. I'm going to bet on that continuing here.
