Nevada vs Boise State Betting Prediction

Both of these teams have had very good seasons so far and they are towards the top of the Mountain West conference. Boise State is tied for first with Utah State, but Nevada is just one game back. Both teams have won five games in a row and their season stats are very similar, so this should be a great game. Boise State did win the first meeting by a score of 64-56, but that was all the way back in early January. Normally I would side with the home team in this situation, but Nevada has been great on the road. I think this game is a toss up and with Nevada playing well on the road, I am going to take a shot with them.
