Nevada vs Fresno State Prediction & Pick

The Wolf Pack check in third in the Mountain West right now and have a case to land a spot in March Madness with an at-large bid if they do not win the conference tournament. Avoiding upset losses down the stretch is going to be crucial and it starts with taking care of business against Fresno State.

Nevada has been heating up from long range, draining 42.0% of its shots from beyond the arc over its last three games. That momentum is going to come in handy on Friday considering Fresno State allows an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 36.9% on the season (No. 322 in NCAA).

Nevada has won 10 of its last 11 games against Fresno State, so back the Wolf Pack with confidence.

Final Score Prediction: Nevada: 70 | Fresno State: 62

Nevada vs Fresno State Best Bet

Nevada heads into tonight 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games overall and 4-1 ATS in its last five games played on a Friday. The Wolf Pack are also 4-1 ATS in its last five games against the Bulldogs. They earned a victory by a margin greater than 3 points in four of those five games, too.

Combine that success with the fact that Fresno State is averaging 61.4 points per game (No. 350 in NCAA) and this lines up as a game in which Nevada pulls away late. That's what happened when these teams met on Feb. 10 as the Wolf Pack outscored the Bulldogs by nine in the second half to win 77-66.

Bet: Nevada Wolf Pack -3.5 (-102)
