Bet The Nevada Wolf Pack at +28 Because…
Nevada’s Tyler Stewart completed 17 of 23 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns while running back James Butler rushed for 123 yards and two scores on 21 carries, including the game-winner in overtime to beat Cal-Poly 30-27 in Week 1.
The Wolf Pack led 21-7 after one quarter and 24-10 by halftime, but had to hold off the Mustangs to get the narrow win.
Bet The Notre Dame Fighting Irish at -28 Because…
Quarterback DeShone Kizer rallied the Irish from a 31-17 deficit in the third quarter and finished with 215 yards passing and five touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as Notre Dame lost a heartbreaker against Texas 50-47 in overtime in Week 1.
Now, heading into Week 2, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly is considering scrapping the quarterback rotation between Kizer and Malik Zaire that caused the Irish to have no continuity.
"No final decision has been made," Kelly said. "It’s never easy playing two quarterbacks."
Zaire completed 2 of 5 passes for 23 yards in the loss while Notre Dame got a team-high 88 rushing yards from Tarean Folston in the loss.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Nevada might not be in the same class of elite gridiron programs as Notre Dame, but I just can’t bring myself to back a Notre Dame team that looked nothing like the national title contender I though they might be this season.
Having said that let me also say that like the Wolf Pack to get the ATS cover in this Week 2 affair.
Nevada has gone 5-2 ATS in its last seven games and an identical 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games. Notre Dame may be 5-1 ATS in their last six home games, but the Irish are also 1-4 ATS in their last five games. The Irish win, but the Wolf Pack cover the college football betting line.
