The Nevada Wolf Pack are no longer looking for revenge against Wyoming, this team has been on the mountain top, down in the valley with a close one here and there and tonight’s game will not be close. It may be cold in Laramie, but inside that gym is the hot shooting from 6-7 forward, Caleb Martin-19 ppg, 41% from the field. This one will not be close. A couple of weeks back, all the talk in the Mountain West was centered around Boise State and how that Nevada had better watch out for the up and comers, yea, yea.

When a team is perpetually ranked in the Top 25 and better yet, the Top 10 and to boot, for several years now, they are no longer a surprise. Now, does this mean that Wyoming will be prepared and ready in waiting with an upset?
Not a chance.
Nevada is fighting for a number 2 seed in the tournament and they want a big win. They want to cover the spread today. This team will certainly not overlook Wyoming, experience tells them better.
Wyoming has six wins on the season and Nevada is scoring 82.5 points per game and allowing 66.6. Wyoming is scoring 66 points per game and allowing 75. With a 9-point negative differential, Wyoming is in big trouble! This differential comes against mostly unranked teams and some very bad teams.
The Vegas oddsmakers make their case for -21.5 and they make it quite nicely. With a week’s rest and a shooting percentage of 46.8% for the Wolf Pack, against 42% for the Cowboys, this one will not be close.
