Colorado State @ Nevada
Current Records: Colorado State 0-4; Nevada 2-3
The Nevada Wolf Pack are 3-1 against the Colorado State Rams since December of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Friday. Nevada will take on Colorado State at 10:30 p.m. ET at Clarence Mackay Stadium after a week off. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after considerable defeats in their previous games.
The Wolf Pack were expected to have a tough go of it two weeks ago, and, well, they did. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 48-20 punch to the gut against the Air Force Falcons. Nevada was down 41-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
Meanwhile, Colorado State suffered a grim 41-10 defeat to the Sacramento State Hornets two weeks ago.
Nevada is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
The Wolf Pack are a 3.5-point favorite against the Rams, according to the latest college football odds.
The oddsmakers were right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 3.5-point spread, and stayed right there.
