This is going to be a test to see how good Santa Clara can be this season, as you learn nothing when teams play these schools nobody has heard of. Nevada on the otherhand is off to a strong start, which includes a win over a really good Rhode Island team, and the Wolf Pack appear to be a threat in the MWC this season. Nevada is deep, experienced and proved late last season it's more than capable of winning on the road. Give me the Wolf Pack and the reasonable line. I'm high on this team this season.
