4. Texas State at Nevada

LINES Nevada -1
ATS PICK Nevada

What, you didn’t dig the way Nevada had to hang on for dear life in Week 0 against a New Mexico State team that just got obliterated by Minnesota?

This is a gutted Wolf Pack squad with former head coach Jay Norvell leaving this offseason and taking the offense, a slew of key players, and the team’s mojo with him to Colorado State.

What, you didn’t dig the 78 passing yards and 3.4 yards per attempt by Nevada against the Aggies? You’re afraid Texas State might have the same success defensively?

Texas State has been a weird team lately in early games.

If gave Baylor fits in a 29-20 loss last year, pushed SMU in 2020, and should’ve beaten Boston College a few weeks later. That shouldn’t matter when it comes to this season, the lack of a run defense and not enough downfield passing upside is a concern.

I like that it’s in Reno. I like that Nevada got to work out the kinks against New Mexico State. I love the potential of the running game taking over.

The combination of Toa Tau and Devonte Lee is good enough to take control right away and have the ball for about 35 minutes – Texas State won’t care about time of possession.

This went from 10.5 when it opened to just -1 in most places.
