Utah State is 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games. Nevada is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games. The over is 9-2 in Nevada’s last 11 games following a straight up loss. The under is 4-1 in Utah State’s last five games. 

These are two offenses that have been strong and there will be very little defense played by either squad. Look for both offenses to run up the score, and this game is going to go well over the total. Back the over to cash.  In terms of the side it's a lean to Nevada to come to cover the spread.
