Dave’s Free Play, Tuesday 2/24/15

  • February 24, 2015

Due to a continued service outage, I’m forced to skip the commentary and analysis again today.

I have received assurance from my provider the situation will be rectified by sometime Tuesday. They did not specify whether they mean this Tuesday or one in the future, but I will hope for the best.

Tonight’s free play:

544 Utah State -2.5

UPDATE: Back online at last. Number on this game has obviously moved since I posted it last night, would still recommend Utah State. Here’s a brief analysis.

 

Not easy to lay points against UNLV as the Rebels have been right there in
almost every game. UNLV will also have some confidence off the nice win at New Mexico. But this is the revenge game of the year for the Aggies. They blew a five-point lead with less than a minute to go in regulation in the first
meeting, and they then blew a six-point lead in the overtime. Utah State is
pretty hot right now to boot, with four straight wins and covers. Morrill will
also zone the Rebels and they are not a great offense against that scheme. Might also be a bit of a bounce spot for UNLV coming out of New Mexico, which is a bigger rival for the Rebels. Utah State ought to win this rematch, and I’ll take my chances with laying the points.

Back to the usual format on Wednesday!
