Nevada at Northwestern
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT
CRIS Opener: Northwestern -23 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: Northwestern -24 O/U 60.5
Recommendation: Northwestern

Nevada has been in steady decline since the departure of of longtime head coach Chris Ault. Brian Polian managed to take the Wolf Pack to two bowl games but make no mistake, he wasn't going to take the program to Ault-like levels. And it'll be a tall task for first-year head coach Jay Norvell as well. Norvell inherits a squad that was far worse than its 5-7/3-5 record a season ago. Playing in the far weaker MWC West Division, the Wolf Pack were outgained by 1.4 ypp in league play. As for this year's squad, there are 43 new players that must digest completely new systems on both sides of the ball. One such "system" will be the famed/doomed "Air Raid" offense. Offensive coordinator Matt Mumme, son of Hal, says he wants to run 85-90 plays per game. That's a dangerous recipe for a squad that still doesn't have a clear cut starter at quarterback, lost it's top running back, and projects to have one of the weakest defenses Read more

College Football Gambling: It doesn't look promising for the Nevada Wolf Pack this season

It will almost assuredly be a long season in Reno with Nevada attempting to overhaul the program. Brian Polian got the Wolf Pack to the postseason twice but after last year's 5-7 mark they were statistically far worse the university decided to go in a different direction. Oddly, they brought in 54-year-old longtime assistant Jay Norvell. Hal Mumme’s son, Matt, was named offensive coordinator. He was the head coach (12-20) at a DIII school and is expected to install some sort of pass happy offense. Adding to the likelihood of struggles is the departure of running back James Butler (1,336 yards; transferred to Iowa) and the desire to play two quarterbacks...in a pass-first offense. No surprise to see Nevada catching +24 at Northwestern in Week 1.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Loyola Marymount Lions at Nevada Wolf Pack

Loyola Marymount at Nevada -11 O/U 149.5
Recommendation: Nevada


Nevada head coach Eric Musselman produced one of the better coaching performances in the country last season as he took a middling program to 24 wins and a CBI title. The Wolf Pack were young, had little to no depth, and were one of the worst shooting teams in the country at 45.5 eFG% and 29% from three. What Nevada did do was play hard and defend. This season, they return four key players and welcome some newcomers expected to contribute immediately. While Marqueze Coleman and Tyron Criswell produced points, they were also high volume shooters and not very efficient. Both players have since departed and with a handful of younger players a year older and some transfers, I'm confident we'll see the team's shooting percentages improve. In their first game of the season, they managed to hit 47% in a really tough environment at St. Mary's. But tonight's opponent offers an opportunity for offensive success. In Loyola Marymount's first season under Mike Dunlap, the Lions ranked 312th in defensive efficiency. Last year, they "improved" to 254th. It's reasonable to call more Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Montana Grizzlies at Nevada Wolf Pack

Montana at Nevada -3.5 O/U 138.5
Recommendation: Nevada


Ultra-tough spot for Montana tonight as it travels right back to Reno after losing in heartbreaking fashion to Weber State in the Big Sky Tournament finals. Following the loss, the team was split on whether or not they even wanted to play in a postseason tournament. In the end, they decided to give it a go but it's clear the sting of not making the NCAA Tournament hit this team hard. Now they must go back on the road to uneventful Reno, Nevada and try to get up for the meaningless CBI Tournament. Supporting teams in these secondary tournaments with first-year head coaches isn't a bad profile. Eric Musselman took over a nine-win team and got them to 19-13 and a winning record inside the Mountain West. The Wolf Pack are still without a healthy Marqueze Coleman who was a non-factor in the MWC Tournament. And they've had a difficult time winning by margin this season with three overtime victories and five others by three or less. Nine times out of ten I believe all of the distractions and situationals get tossed out once the whistle blows, but there's a strong potential for a no-show from the road Read more
