NCAAM Free Pick | Utah State vs. Nevada
TV: 11:00 PM ET ESPNU
Current Line: Nevada -10 Total: 148.5
The #6 Nevada Wolf Pack are off to the best start in program history, at 13-0 and this team is no longer a surprise. Just as Gonzaga did it 20 years ago, Nevada has come along and established themselves as a team to be feared, a team to be reckoned with and a team that’s very worthy of a #6-in the country ranking.
The good news for Nevada is their upcoming conference schedule. The hard part of the schedule is over, the non-conference games were tough, and against some very worthy competition.
They started out the season with a win over BYU 86-70, Pacific 83-61, Little Rock 87-59, California Baptist 90-55, Tulsa 96-86, UMass 110-87, Loyola-Chicago 79-65, USC 73-61, #20 Arizona State 72-66, Grand Canyon 74-66, South Dakota State 72-68, Akron 68-62, and Utah 86-71.
There are some good teams on this list and some unknown teams. Every great Division I school has a non-conference schedule such as this, to be 13-0, is remarkable, and a true testament to this teams character.
Utah State is playing very well, and they come into this one with a 10-3 record, however, there is an asterisk, and that would be strength of schedule, it’s simply not the same as Nevada’s. What we mean by this is not whom they have beaten, but who has beaten them. In their three losses, they were beaten by Arizona State 82-87, BYU 80-95, and #21 Houston, 50-60. Two of these teams, Nevada has beaten — Arizona State and BYU.
