Saturday, Air Force hosts UNLV in an evenly-matched showdown of prolific ground offenses.
And while each team boasts a top-fifteen rushing attack, neither program has found sustained success in 2017, as evidenced by their combined 3-7 record.
Due to narrow setbacks against undefeated #19 SDSU and undefeated #24 Navy, the foremost books make Air Force the early-line favorite.
And while the Falcons, though 1-5, have faced a higher level of competition than visiting UNLV, run defense and passing yardage favor the Rebels.
Regardless of the spread, though, this contest has the makings of a true pick-em affair.
After blitzing humble San Jose State University, the Rebels were shellacked last week 41-10 by common Air Force opponent SDSU. It is worth noting in week four the Falcons took SDSU into deep waters before losing a thrilling encounter, 28-24.
However, opposite a willful Aztec collection, UNLV fell flat after a gridlocked opening quarter. SDSU’s Rashad Penny burned the turf for 170 yards and two touchdowns, and Mikah Holder grabbed nine passes for 144 yards.
Meanwhile, host UNLV gained only 12 total first downs as its staple run attack was held scoreless at 3.4 yards per carry by Rocky Long’s crew. To find success against Air Force, the Rebels will need defensive stops and renewed ground efficiency.
Air Force Falcons
For the second time in three outings, last weekend, hard-luck Air Force dropped a narrow contest to an undefeated, and now top-25 ranked foe.
During a battle of the Armed Forces, Navy’s dynamic Zach Abey tallied four touchdowns and 300 yards of total offense, before finding Tyler Carmona in the end-zone to avert the Falcons’ cardiac upset bid.
Though before a deflating finish, Arion Worthman added four touchdowns of his own while leading a strong two-way attack (9-16 257 yards, 2 TD passing) (20 carries, 139 yards, 2 TD rushing).
However, the Air Force defense, in recurring fashion, ceded 557 yards.
If the Falcons are to overcome UNLV, a premium must be placed on defense and maintaining field control.

While early strength-of-schedule and relative performance sways in Air Force’s favor, again, this contest will be hard fought from beginning to end. Though, holding home field is always a huge factor.
By way of rabid fan support, Air Force will earn its second win of the season vs. UNLV.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Air Force -3
Standout Falcons QB Arion Worthman should prove too much for a lax UNLV defense. Also, if wideout Marcus Bennett finds seams in the Rebels secondary, this contest could turn heavily in favor of the home team.
