Nevada vs UNLV Prediction

Nevada came into the season with much higher expectations, led by former UCLA head coach Steve Alford. Nevada is a much better team than their record would indicate, but at this point in the season would need to get on a big run to reach March Madness.

They will have a chance to get a home win tonight and come into play as a 2.5 point favorite. Their big gun this season has been guard Grant Sherfield who is scoring just south of nineteen points per game. UNLV, on the flip side, has been led by one of the best scorers in the conference in the form of Bryce Hamilton. Hamilton is scoring 21.6 points per game and has been a matchup nightmare for opposing teams all year long. These two teams played on February the first in a game that UNLV dominated at home and ultimately won the game by eleven points. This should be a good matchup tonight between a pair of teams who sit in the middle of their conference.

I will be backing Nevada tonight at -2 in this game. I love the line we are getting here tonight for this Nevada team at home. Nevada has the advantage in a few different areas, but the one I want to focus on is their offensive efficiency.

This is a team who is currently scoring nearly seventy-four points per game and has a lot of different weapons that can get it done. I think they have a nice advantage tonight in the paint with Will Baker, who has been outstanding the last couple of weeks. Their guard play has been very good this year, and is finding its flow as of late. Sheffield is one of the best players in all of the conference, and senior Desmond Cambridge Jr is a great source of scoring as well.

Cambridge Jr is currently scoring about seventeen points per game. I think the offense of the Wolfpack paired with the home-court advantage here will lift them to their fourth straight victory tonight. I will be backing Nevada on the short spread. Let’s cash in another ticket tonight!
