Pacific is 6-1 against the spread against the Mountain West Conference, 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 home games, and 1-5-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Nevada is 5-0 against the spread in their last five non-conference games, 4-1 against the spread against the West Coast Conference, and 1-4 against the spread following a loss.
Nevada is just a mild favorite here on the road but I expect them to play hard and get another win and cover.
