Nevada Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 7-5
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 5-6-1
  • Conference: Mountain West
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 117
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 92
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 60

Analysis: Nevada clinched its bowl eligibility with two weeks remaining in the regular season, but probably would’ve liked to end its season on a higher note. The Wolfpack dropped their final game at home to a UNLV team that was 1-6 in conference play to that point. Prior to that, however, they had rattled off two impressive road wins, taking down San Diego State and Fresno State as 17- and 13-point underdogs, respectively. They did eclipse their offseason Vegas win total of 6.5, but they haven’t exactly been a model of consistency throughout the season. Nevada ranks 117th in offensive yards per play and 72nd on the defensive side, and there aren’t a lot of seven-win teams that can say that. In fact, Nevada ranks dead-last in SP+ (112th in the country) among teams with seven wins. –Danny Donahue

Ohio Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 6-6
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 4-8
  • Conference: MAC
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 13
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 87
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 32

Analysis: Miami Ohio is by far the biggest surprise from the MAC this year. While they piled up enough wins to win the MAC championship, the Redhawks aren’t a team that I’m viewing as vastly improved in 2019. Miami ranks 110th in yards per play on offense, 112th in passing success rate, 125th in rushing success rate, and 110th in overall efficiency. They don’t have a strength on offense which isn’t a surprise given their freshman quarterback and poor offensive line. The defense is pretty good, but it’s not anything to write home about. Look to fade Miami if they face a team that has success running the ball. –Kyle Miller
