Texas Tech knows one thing - get the ball and score as quickly as possible. Nevada isn't known by many in the country, but this is a good team that is very talented, having made three consecutive Bowl appearances. This team knows something about what it takes to line up across from a high octane offense, as last year they went to Boise State and lost by just two points. They also had everyone's darling Hawaii on the ropes late until losing by two at home. Two years ago, they also lost to Hawaii by just 7 points. Texas Tech often has trouble with teams that can create offense. Last year they gave up 30 points five times, and did not cover a single one! They have covered one of their last 11 games in which they allowed 30+ points. The Wolfpack are 8-1 Under Mike Leach, the Red Raiders are just 5-13 ATS on the road after a 21+ point win. Meanwhile, under Chris Ault, the Wolfpack are 17-5 ATS in home games! Nevada is a much closer team, talent-wise, than this spread indicates (double-digits at home). I'm jumping on this overlay and riding the live dog here.
