College football betting handicappers saw Nevada open as a 10.5-point NCAA football betting favorite as the Wolfpack is coming off their best game of the season.
After a 0-3 start both straight up and against the spread to the college football betting season Nevada blew out intra-state rival UNLV 63-28 for an easy NCAA football betting payout as 6.5-point home favorites last week. It was also the Wolfpack’s first college football betting over of the season as the game soared above the total of 58. Nevada’s college football betting matchup against Louisiana Tech will be their Western Athletic Conference opener and they matchup well against the Bulldogs as their powerful ground game is expected to roll over the porous Louisiana Tech defense.
Nevada is averaging 275 yards per game on the ground which puts them in the top five in college football betting. Louisiana Tech is allowing 186 yards per game on the ground and that ranks a horrendous 105th on the college football betting charts. The Nevada attack is led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick who has 295 yards rushing for a 6.3 yards per carry average. Kaepernick has thrown for 754 yards and 3 touchdowns to round out his resume.
Louisiana Tech has a college football betting record of 2-2 both straight up and against the spread as 2 out of those 4 games have gone over the NCAA football betting total. The Bulldogs scored a college football betting win in their WAC opener last week as they defeated Hawaii 27-6 for an easy payoff as 6-point home chalks. The home team has covered all 4 of Louisiana Tech’s college football betting matchups so far this year.
Louisiana Tech has been a poor college football betting commodity on the road recently with just 1 payout in their last 10 games away from home. The Bulldogs have gone under the total in 7 out of their last 9 road games. Nevada has gotten the cash in 3 out of the last 4 in this series at home including 2 straight at Mackay Stadium.
