Wyoming vs Nevada Prediction  

Nevada slowed UNLV down with the victory in Vegas over the weekend, but they get a test here from an experienced Wyoming squad. Although the Cowboys are 6-6 in the rapidly improving Mountain West, they’ve picked up wins over Nevada and Colorado State already. Nevada’s got their eye on a conference crown, so they should find a way to evade the upset here, but let’s roll the dice and spot Wyoming the points for this late night battle. The Under will be in play as well, as Nevada trends very well with it.
