Pick Against The Spread

It’s very difficult to back a team that has just three wins on the season, including a less-than-impressive 2-6 in Mountain West home games. The losses aren’t close either, with their past ten defeats being by six or more points. They continue to be overvalued by the lines maker going 1-9 against the spread over the L10 losses. Nevada needs this win to solidify their tournament chances, so I expect a complete effort. Can they win by six or more? They play a lot of close games, and it’s “seniors’ night” at the Arena-Auditorium and the last home game. Take Nevada -5.5.
