The total has gone under in each of the Eagles' last five games.

Nevada has been favored in 11 of their 13 games this season, going 5-6 ATS and 10-1 straight up. The Wolf Pack have lost their last four bowl games, and went into last bowl season as one of the most heavily favored bowl teams of 2009-2010. They lost the Hawaii Bowl to SMU 45-10. Despite averaging 42.6 points per game, the total has gone under in Nevada's last three games.
