Would you take the over for SDSU at 9.5 wins?
Sports bookmaker Bovada updated their win/loss totals from earlier this summer for all of college football, and within the Mountain West there were a few changes.
In fact the changes include Boise State going from 8 to 8.5 and that is significant for those who wanted to take the under, because seven wins is highly unlike but eight could be more palatable for others if they think the Broncos are going to have a down year. Nothing changes for the folks who see Boise State as a team that can win nine or more games.
Another changes if Fresno State now at 4 wins which is down from 4.5. The Bulldogs are not going to be a good team and 4.5 seemed to be super easy money by taking the under. Having Fresno State as a whole number means if you want the under they need to win three or fewer games. That still seems very likely.
Just look at the Bulldogs schedule. In the non-conference they face go to Alabama and Washington in back-to-back weeks and face BYU. None of those are wins. The one win for sure is their opener against Incarnate Word, an FCS team.
A few other games that are winnable are when they host Nevada — who no longer has star running back James Butler — UNLV and travel to San Jose State. Could Fresno State beat them all? Sure they can, but odds are they do not. The under still makes sense and gives some cushion if they do win all of those games plus their FCS opener, because that still puts them at just four wins.
Hawaii’s win total number is still very friendly going from four wins to 4.5 wins, so for anyone taking the over this should not impact your projection for the Warriors team. They very likely will be bowling for the second straight year.
Every other team remains the same in the win totals, but for some reason Wyoming was not listed, and in the prior odds they were sitting at eight wins.
