College Football Betting Trends
The over is 5-0 in the last five Falcons games on field turf. The over is 4-0 in the last four Air Force road games versus a team with a losing home record.
The over is 4-0 in the last four UNLV Friday games. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
Look at all the over trends. You could be a contrarian and someone who plays the law of averages by taking the under, but with UNLV's defense along with what can be a quick-strike Rebels offense when it's clicking has me heavily leaning toward a high-scoring game that hits the over.
PREDICTION: AIR FORCE/UNLV OVER 56.5
