High Expectations in NCAA Football Betting on Nevada

NCAA football betting on Nevada is going to be interesting in 2009 and it could also be profitable.

The expectations are extremely high on Nevada in NCAA football betting as they are picked behind only Boise State in the Western Athletic Conference this season.  Those making a college football bet at the sports book shouldn’t underestimate the Wolf Pack this season.

NCAA football betting on Nevada is going to get immediate attention as they open the season with perhaps the biggest game in school history as they travel to face Notre Dame.  The Wolf Pack has the weapons to give Notre Dame all kinds of problems in this NCAA football betting matchup.  They have seven starters back on offense as college football bet numbers indicate, including quarterback Colin Kaepernick and running back Vai Taua.  Kaepernick is the preseason selection for offensive player of the year in the WAC as NCAA football betting info tells us.  Last year he was only the fifth player in NCAA football betting history to pass for more than 1,000 yards and run for more than 2,000 yards. "The sky is the limit for this team," said Kaepernick. "We're not going to Notre Dame just to be competitive and keep it close. We're going there to win."  The Wolf Pack is a 14 point underdog in NCAA football betting at the sports book to the Irish in the opener.

The early part of the NCAA football betting season for the Wolf Pack is not easy.  After they travel to Notre Dame they have a bye and the play at Colorado State and host Missouri in NCAA football betting.  "I expect us to be a good football team," head coach Chris Ault said, "The tests will come early. Those first four weeks will dictate the character of this football team."

Eight starters return on defense for Nevada as NCAA football betting stats indicate.  That may not be good news considering Nevada’s defense was nothing special as college football bet stats showed.  "We were a poor defense last year and we have a lot of room for improvement. We just haven't had the right chemistry on defense," Ault said. "My priority as head coach this season is to put a personality on this defense." 

If the Wolf Pack can improve defensively they have a chance to make an impact in NCAA football betting in the WAC this year and be a profitable team for those making a college football bet at the sportsbook to follow.
