Sportsbook Report: Portland Pilots (+6) vs. UNLV Runnin' Rebels

By Wally Jeter

No word on Kevin Bailey playing yet. UNLV is ranked #116 on Kenpom.com's rankings and the Pilots are currently #146. UNLV's only 2 losses this year are to Stanford and Arizona State. Hard to get a line still with the Bailey situation but I saw sportsbook.com had it at UNLV -6 just now. I am going to say go with UNLV. I haven't heard for sure on Bailey but I feel like they might be shouting it from the rooftops if he was going to play tonight. His plantar faciitis will be a continuing story line this year. Go with UNLV tonight, they haven't lost at home yet and without Bailey the Pilots will need to much to go their way to match the Rebs scoring.
