UNLV vS. Ohio State Live stream. Staff Predictions: Ohio State vs. UNLV, Five Predictions for UNLV vs Ohio State
UNLV enters Ohio Stadium a week after a much needed rebound victory over the Idaho Vandals followed by a week off. The Rebels suffered the worst point-spread loss in NCAA football history in their season opener against Howard. There have been 254 instances of point spreads of at least 40 points since 2005, according to BetLabSports.com. Before UNLV lost to Howard, 40-point-plus favorites were 253-0.
It is safe to say that, as an underdog of 31 or more points, Las Vegas doesn’t stand a chance of winning outright as they have gone 0-11 Straight Up under this scenario since 1992 while covering the spread in approximately half those games.
The Rebels’ one hope to make this a contest would be in the passing game, as Ohio State ranks 102nd in the country with 275.0 receiving yards allowed per game. UNLV, though, has averaged only 206.5 passing yards per game and has registered just two touchdown receptions so far in 2017.
