Analysis:
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 (1 p.m.)
It’s not good to be a big favorite in the Mountain West, at least when it comes to covering the spread. Double-digit favorites in league games are 0-6-1 ATS this season, a record that’s going to change this weekend as two games feature three-possession favorites.
