3 Units – Northern Illinois (-23)
The Tony Sanchez era officially begins at UNLV on Saturday as his Rebels make the trek to Dekalb to face off with Northern Illinois, our preseason pick to win the MAC. Sanchez may think he is still at Bishop Gorman in Vegas after he sees his team on the field as we fully expect the Rebels to be one of the worst five teams in FBS this season. These two teams played last year in Vegas in Week 3 and the Huskies came away with a 14-point win. This Rebel team will be even younger than the bad ones of the past several campaigns and only return 10 starters from last year’s 2-11 squad, while the Huskies will return 13 starters from their MAC West championship team, the fifth straight time they have won their division. The numbers all scream towards the home side here….Consider that Vegas is 1-14 in their last 15 road openers, losing their last seven by an average of 26 ppg. Meanwhile, NIU is 13-2 in their last 15 home openers, winning their last seven games by an average of 27 ppg. Drew Hare returns at QB for the Huskies and he enjoyed a solid first year as the starter, throwing 18 TD’s to just two interceptions and completing right at 60% of his throws. An interesting ATS trend here regarding NIU is that when the Huskies rush for 250 yards or more, they are 17-3 against the number since 1992 and this Rebel rush defense could be one of the worst they see all year long. This Huskie team is used to be being the big dog in the MAC but were picked third in their preseason poll, so they may come out Saturday with something to prove to the rest of the conference. Huskies absolutely ROLL in this one by 4 TD’s at a minimum. The Sharps say…
