College football betting fans saw Nevada jump start their season last week with a blowout win over intra-state rival UNLV against the NCAA betting lines. After losing and failing to cover their first 3 college football betting appearances the Nevada Wolfpack stormed back with a 63-28 home win over the UNLV Rebels to get their first payoff of the season against the NCAA betting lines as 6.5-point home chalks.
Nevada boasts the 4th best rushing attack in all of college football betting and ran for over 500 yards on the ground against UNLV. Luke Lippincott is the Wolfpack’s leading rusher with 336 yards and a 6.6 yards per carry average.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has 295 yards rushing so far this college football betting season with a 6.3 yards per carry average and 1 TD. Vai Taua has 209 yards on the ground with 2 touchdowns and a 6.5 yards per carry average.
Kaepernick has also thrown for 754 yards with 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions after 4 weeks of college football betting action. Nevada now stands at 1-3 both straight up and against the college football betting board as they open their Western Athletic Conference portion of the schedule with this one.
The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs may be in for college football betting trouble in this matchup as they have one of the worst run defenses in the land with a ranking of 105th.
The Bulldogs are an even 2-2 both straight up and against the college football betting board this year and are coming of a 27-6 home win over Hawaii as 6-point chalks on September 30 in their WAC opener. In this head to head series these two teams have gone over the total in 6 out of their last 8 matchups.
Both the host and the chalk have covered 4 out of the last 5 meetings between these 2 teams. Last year Tech covered in a 31-35 home loss to Nevada as 4.5-point dogs with the game going over the total of 60.
