Nevada vs. Colorado State Prediction

I’m on Colorado State here. The weakness from the Rams has come when Colorado State’s been on the road, but at home, the Rams have been a much stronger team. Nevada’s a tough out and this Wolf Pack team is legit, but I think Colorado State needs this win badly and I think on home soil, they go out and get it so give me the Rams laying the points in this one.
