The Nevada Wolf Pack will play the San Jose State Spartans in a Mountain West Game on Saturday night at CEFCU Stadium in San Jose, California.

The Nevada Wolf Pack are 2-6 (0-4) this season after they lost to San Diego State by a score of 23-7 in their last game. Nevada only gained 227 total yards and went 3-14 on third down conversions in the loss. The Nevada offense is averaging 19.9 points per game with 170 passing yards per game and 113.5 rushing yards per game. The starting quarterback position is up in the air for Nevada, but it will be either Nate Cox or Shane Illingworth. Toa Taua has rushed for 496 yards and seven scores, while also catching 27 passes for 258 yards and one touchdown for Nevada. Jamaal Bell has caught 25 passes for 254 yards for the Wolf Pack. The Nevada defense is giving up 28.4 points per game and 380.9 yards per game.

The San Jose State Spartans are 4-2 (2-1) this season after they lost to Fresno State by a score of 17-10 in their last game. San Jose State gained 334 total yards, but went 3-15 on third down attempts and did not score in the second half. The San Jose State offense is averaging 25.7 points per game with 271.5 passing yards per game and 101.3 rushing yards per game. Chevan Cordeiro has thrown for 1,610 yards, seven touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing for 173 yards and six touchdowns for the Spartans this season. Kairee Robinson has rushed for 343 yards and five scores, while Elijah Cooks has caught 29 passes for 542 yards and three touchdowns for San Jose State. The San Jose State defense is allowing 14.5 points per game and 295.7 yards per game.

Nevada is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. The under is 4-1 in Nevada’s last 5 games. San Jose State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games against a team with a losing record. The under is 4-0 in San Jose State’s last 4 home games. The under is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings at San Jose State.

Nevada has really struggled this season and is not even averaging 20 points per game. Nevada has lost six games in a row, but they have not given up a ton of points. San Jose State had their game postponed last week, so they will be on some extra rest and should be relatively healthy. San Jose State’s defense has been one of the best scoring defenses in the entire country this year and will give Nevada a lot of issues. I like the under in this game.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
