The Bulldogs defense has been good most of the season, but the offense has let them down a lot. Away from home Fresno State is averaging 66.8 points while the defense is giving up 68.3 points.

Over the last five games Nevada’s offense has been clicking averaging 83.4 points while the defense is giving up 71.4. 

Jalen Harris is the star of the Wolfpack averaging 21.8 points, while shooting 45.7 percent from the field. 

In this game for the Wolfpack it’s all going to be about pushing the pace, and running up the score. The higher scoring this game, the better the chance for the Wolfpack will be winning this and covering the spread. 

The Wolfpack are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games on Saturday. The over is 6-2 in the Wolfpack's last eight games overall. The over is 21-8 in the last 29 meetings between Nevada and Fresno State.The over is 10-1 in the last 11 meetings played between the two squads in Denver. 

This is going to be a high scoring affair with very little defense played by the Wolfpack and Bulldogs. Nevada is going to push the pace and play very little defense. Look for the over to cash with ease.
