In college football, the Mountain West Conference has been responsible for plenty of memorable moments. From Boise State’s competitive teams, to schools like Utah and Hawaii making magic of their own, there is always something worth watching in this league. Here, we look at the college football betting odds for the Mountain West and break down the Mountain West championship betting landscape for this season.
Mountain West Football Championship Odds
Mountain West Football Conference Preview
Going into conference play this season, there are three teams inside of +1000 odds to win the Mountain West championship. Those teams are Boise State, Fresno State, and Air Force. The two favorites to win this conference title are Boise and Fresno State, who faced off in last year’s Mountain West championship game. But Air Force and San Diego State could certainly leapfrog the two favorites to get themselves a conference title game berth.
Air Force and Fresno State both won their first three games of the season, as the rest of the league has dropped at least a game. But Boise’s early-season schedule was brutal, as their losses came against UCF and Washington. Things could get easier for them against Mountain West opponents, as nothing has truly been decided in this conference just yet.
Mountain West Football Betting & Handicapping
From a betting perspective, this league is pretty wide open in terms of who can come out on top when all is said and done. The top-three teams in the league are playing well, but there are three or four teams that can conceivably overtake them. For now, we like Fresno State to win the Mountain West, but that could change on a week-to-week basis.
This is not a neutral-site conference championship game. The team with the better record or the tiebreakers will host the game. That could change with Allegiant Stadium now in the mix in Las Vegas, but for now, the team with the better record still has a noteworthy advantage in the game. If you’re looking for a team to bet, consider the regular season schedules and see where their toughest games are so that you can see which team has the highest likelihood of the best record and a chance at home-field advantage.
