Golden Nugget sportsbook marks UNLV Rebels underdogs

29 June 2015

Things aren’t expected to go well for new UNLV football coach Tony Sanchez when he leads the Rebels out on the field at Sam Boyd Stadium for the first time, at least according to the bookmakers.

UNLV has been installed as a 32-point underdog for its home opener against UCLA on Sept. 12 at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas sportsbook, which posted lines on many key college football games throughout the season on Friday.

It doesn’t get a whole lot easier for Sanchez’s team from there. They are significant underdogs in each of the six games posted.

UNLV is a 33-point underdog at Michigan on Sept. 19 and a 14-point underdog to UNR in Reno on Oct. 3.

The Rebels are getting 12 points at Fresno State on Oct. 16.

Boise State is a 28.5-point favorite at Sam Boyd Stadium on Halloween. The Rebels are catching 16 points at home against San Diego State three weeks later.

UNLV opens the season at Northern Illinois on Sept. 5. No line for that game was posted at the Golden Nugget.
