Nevada is 4-0 against the spread following a loss, 13-3-1 against the spread in their last 17 home games, and 8-3-2 against the spread in their last 13 non-conference games. Pacific is 8-2 against the spread against the Mountain West, 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 road games, and 3-7 against the spread following a win.
I like the way Nevada is playing but this looks like too many points so I will take them with Pacific.
