Point Spread: +14/-110 UNLV
UNLV +14 1.1* free play
This is an interesting game because the temperature all week has been in the low 90's in the area and Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill already said they would go deep with their players because of that. For me that means he's not going to try to blow this game open as their are plenty of other games upcoming that are much more important. Minnesota wants to play smash mouth football and run the ball anyway which should slow the game down and I see no reason why Kill will try to run up the score on UNLV and I don't think they can anyway. This game was a 3 OT win by Minnesota 30-27 last year in the desert and UNLV returns 18 starters from that team and should only be better.
Minnesota also has some weakness as they are weak on the outside and will struggle vs. quicker more athletic teams. Well UNLV has that recipe with Tim Cornett who averaged 5.1 ypc a season ago and they also have a running back in Adonis Smith who transfered from Northwestern that can also get on the edges and make big plays. UNLV's defense will has enough experience back to make a couple of key red zone stops to stay in this game.
