Nevada vs San Jose State Game Information

Nevada checks into this game having lost just one of its last six games, and two of those victories came against teams ranked in the top 25 during the matchup. The NCAA basketball spread on this one makes it feel almost like a trap, but Nevada has a ton to play for and numerous reasons to show up in a big way. A loss here would hurt the Wolf Pack quite a bit in the conference standings, and would leave them with an uphill battle going forward, so we broke down why the road team looks like a strong play here.

Nevada vs San Jose State Over/Under Pick: Over 140

Nevada and San Jose State met once this season, a 90-60 dominant victory at home for the Wolf Pack. While San Jose State is far better at playing to the over at home, the same can’t be said of Nevada on the road, but this is a unique spot. The Wolf Pack are currently jockeying for position in the Mountain West Conference, sitting at 8-5. They are just a half-game back of the No. 3 or 4 seed in the conference, one game back of the No. 2 seed and 1.5 games behind Utah State, which sits atop the conference.

I think Nevada comes out firing offensively and once again dominates in a game that should have plenty of points, similar to the last matchup.

Nevada vs San Jose State ATS Pick: Nevada -10

The Wolf Pack’s desire to pick up a key win here is obvious, and they’ve been a great road team ATS, which bodes well against a team stuck in the cellar of the Mountain West. San Jose State hasn’t shown much in terms of signs of life right now either, dropping its last game by 32 against Boise State. The Spartans hung around with other bottom-level teams, but I love Nevada to keep the strong road play going in this spot and am taking the Wolf Pack laying the points as a strong college basketball bet for Friday.

As far as the moneyline, there’s no chance I’m taking San Jose State in this specific spot. Even with odds of +405, it’s not enticing enough, and there’s no value on the Nevada side of things. The Wolf Pack are floating around -525, making this a far better spot to target their spread.
