Air Force sits in the lower tier of the MWC standings, but the Falcons were largely competitive standing 12-18 overall and 6-12 in conference. Air Force looked great in their last outing taking down SJSU at home by a final of 83-61 and that’s the kind of result every team would love to take into postseason action. The Falcons love to play in the half court which can benefit them in the postseason which tends to have a slowing effect on the pace of play. UNLV has been fading losing their last 5 games in a row, but the Rebels still deserve to be favored here simply because of the numbers both these teams have put up this season. UNLV went 2-0 against Air Force with each victory coming by single digits in competitive fashion. With how UNLV has been trending, we like Air Force to keep things respectable again today against the Rebels, as the Falcons go on to cover the spread.
Air Force +10.5 -110
