Nevada vs Fresno State Prediction & Pick

Nevada has been quietly climbing up the rankings in the Mountain West. The Wolf Pack sit in second place and have taken down the first, third, fourth and fifth place teams at least one time this season. They have a knack for showing up in big games and relying on their veterans to get the job done.

Fresno State shouldn't put up too much of a fight. The Bulldogs rank 188th in defensive efficiency and allow nearly 8.0 more points per game on the road than they do at home. Nevada is a perfect 12-0 at home this season and has posted a reliable average scoring margin of +11.3 in those contests.

Nevada has also won nine of its last 10 games against Fresno State, so give me the Wolf Pack here.

Final Score Prediction: Nevada: 74 | Fresno State: 64

Nevada vs Fresno State Best Bet

Seeing this total rank below a ton of other game on Friday's slate is a bit surprising. Both of these teams are averaging more than 71.0 points over their last three games and feature defenses that do not have a reputation of being dominant units. Backing the over is the way to go in this showdown.

The total has hit the over in 10 of Nevada's last 13 games as well as in seven of Fresno State's last 10 games. The over has cashed in 15 of the last 20 head-to-head matchups between the Bulldogs and Wolf Pack, too. Sit back and root for points when these Mountain West teams fight it out on Friday.

Bet: Over 130.5 Points (-115)
