Click Here for the Latest Odds

The San Diego State Aztecs and Nevada Wolfpack face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Mackay Stadium. In 2021 it was San Diego State that was able to secure the 23-21 victory. 

San Diego State comes into this game with a 3-3 record overall but in the last game they weren’t all that impressive, even through they won. The offense could only manage 16 points against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, and they won the game by only two points. Under center for San Diego State was Jalen Mayden and he completed 24 of his 36 passes for 322 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions Chance Bell rushed seven times for 53 yards. Braxton Burmeister started the season under center, but he will be playing wide receiver in this game. The Aztecs are averaging 18.5 points while their defense is giving up 23.8 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nevada Wolfpack and they sit with a 2-5 record overall. Nevada has lost five games in a row, and in the last game against Hawaii they were defeated 31-16. Under center for Nevada is Nate Cox and he completed 22 of his 37 passes for 188 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. The defense really struggled to stop the run, and that can’t happen again here. Nevada is averaging 21.71 points per game while their defense is giving up 29.1 points per game. In this game the defense needs to be good if they want any chance. 

Nevada is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games. The Wolfpack are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games on fieldturf. The Over is 6-1 in Aztecs last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. 

Both of these offenses have shown holes all season and it’s going to be no different in this game. Even though Nevada’s defense hasn’t been great, neither was Hawaii’s, and San Diego State only managed 16 points against them. Look for this game to be lower scoring, and the under is going to cash here.
