Nevada vs UNLV Prediction & Pick

What a disastrous season in Reno for first-year Nevada coach Ken Wilson. The Wolf Pack have lost 9 straight games since starting 2-0 against weak opponents. Nevada's offense is among the very worst in college football, averaging just 272 yards per game against FBS opponents. Both teams allow nearly the same 385 YPG vs FBS foes. But over their last three games, UNLV's defense has been better while Nevada has allowed 472 yards per game.

Fresno State's league-best passing game went for 361 yards last week against Nevada's league-worst pass defense. UNLV quarterback Doug Blumfield passed for 288 yards at Hawaii last week, and he could go for 300 this week. The Rebels ground game also projects to rush for 170+ yards.

The UNLV Rebels take out their frustrations on their neighbor to the North and take back the Fremont Cannon.

Final Score Prediction: Nevada: 37 | Nevada: 17

What a change from a season ago. Nevada was completing an 8-win season and a 20-point favorite Over UNLV and Nevada rolled over the Rebels 51-20. UNLV can actually reach a bowl game with a 5th win due to an Academic Progress Rate tiebreaker since there are not enough 6-win teams to fill the 82 bowl slots.

Rarely will you ever see a team on a 6-game losing streak that was an underdog five times laying double-digits. But Nevada is as bad as advertised. Don't be surprised if the Rebels fire their own cannon in redemption as they take back the Fremont Cannon in a route.

Bet: UNLV -12.5 (-110)
