Air Force Falcons at Utah St. Aggies Betting Preview

A Thursday Night Mountain West Conference game between 2 teams going in different direction. Air Force clamoring to finish the season above 500. While Utah St, is going through motions of having a very young team that is maturing by the game. I expect this to be much closer than it looks on paper.

Moneyline: Giants (-580), Jets (+390)

Total: OVER 51.5 (-110), UNDER 51.5 (-110)
