SATURDAY’S MWC PICKS


Texas Christian (minus 3.5) at Air Force: Anyone for a 35-34 final? TCU and Air Force rank eighth and ninth respectively in scoring offense among conference teams. But no one has come close to looking as bad as Air Force early in league play. Pick: TCU

Brigham Young (minus-1.5) at New Mexico: BYU has outscored two conference opponents by nearly 19 points and is clearly the league’s best team today. It has also beaten the Lobos six straight times. Pick: BYU

Colorado State (plus-14.5) at Utah: The Rams had lost 19 straight conference games before knocking off UNLV on Wednesday, so the idea that such a win could propel them into some sort of win streak is impractical. That’s a lot of points to give, but the Rams have stunk for a while now. Pick: UTAH

Wyoming (plus-13.5) at UNLV: This is one of those times when you shake your head at a line and get very strange feeling those setting the odds know something everyone else doesn't. So we'll play right into their hands. Pick: WYOMING
