San Diego is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 Friday games. Nevada is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games.
This is a hefty line considering that the Wolf Pack aren’t the Wolf Pack we’re used to seeing in Nevada year in and year out. However, neither is San Diego and the Toreros, who were inconsistent over the last couple of years, have seemingly taken another step back. I think Nevada is simply the better team from top-to-bottom and have no issue dispatching San Diego in this one. I’ll lay the points.
