NCAA Over/Under Win Total wagering for Nevada Wolf Pack

Aug 12, 2012 3:00 AM


(Note: GT sports editor Mark Mayer will assess the 35 college football teams on the LVH sports book list of OVER / UNDER win totals leading up to the Aug. 30 season openers. Today: Nevada Wolf Pack).

Nevada Wolf Pack Over / Under 8 1/2 wins

Pleading the case:

• The Wolf Pack has a test in the opener at Cal, but it’s not inconceivable that they could be 6-0 heading into the UNLV game.

• Coach Chris Ault begins his 28th season at Nevada, a far cry from all the head coaching turnover at UNLV over that stretch.

• Ault cleaned house in the offseason, hiring a new offensive and defensive coordinator, RB/special teams and OL coaches.

• Nevada QB Cody Fajardo was the WAC Freshman of the Year in 2011. The Wolf Pack is now competing in the Mountain West.

• The receiving corps only had three scholarship players compete in spring camp.

Prediction: OVER 8½. Cal and South Florida are the first two games and Boise State is the finale. In between should all be wins.
