If you know me, you know I like to make only one or two bets and preferably get them done in the first half so that I can enjoy the second half a little more.

All MWC teams are at home and all favored by double digits doesn't seem to leave much value out there. The worst match-up is an Eastern Washington squad that basically lost their coach and all of their players to the transfer portal. Nevada is obviously very good and I’m tempted to take the Pack but I think I’ll pass.

I never bet CSU and I have to wait and see on Utah State. Boise at -15 seems pretty spot on.  Which leaves me San Diego State.

Here’s the deal. UC-Riverside is tremendously undervalued by the computers to start the season. They finished last season as nearly a Top 100 team and they were Top 50 defensively. The Highlanders smoked Washington and took USC to OT last season during their non-conference schedule.  We know San Diego State can defend. We dont know yet how well they will score.

So I’m taking the First Half Under of 62.5.

I like that reasoning. Especially with it being the first game. Rust and all.

How long until the first "fire Kruger " thread?

Doesn't matter! It's still basketball season, and I don't even care who's playing, lol.

I'll never take it for granted again..

Utah Valley and UC Riverside return most of their players that were decent last year. Oral Roberts did well in the Dance. I’ll take all the underdogs to cover and Nevada to cover. 
 

Best pick: Utah Valley to cover @ Boise State

Former Runnin’ Rebel Trey Woodbury is the Wolverine’s leading returning scorer. When I saw him play in Fort Collins two seasons ago, he showed his offensive prowess but seemed to lack the requisite quickness/athleticism to really compete at the MWC level.

And Jahylon Martinez (who never once saw the court at UNLV) is playing for Riverside.

Fardaws Amaiq (WAC POY and DPOY) vs. Mladen Armus will be fun to watch inside the paint. 

I think the Wolverines will struggle offensively and defensively against the bigger and more athletic perimeter players for Boise. But Boise could be in trouble if Armus gets in foul trouble early. Amaiq is a 15/15 type of guy that has 30 point potential if Armus isn't banging him around (unless there's been massive defensive improvement from Milner).
