Hopefully I go to the bar tonite and forget to bet this game, cuz I really don't know what the play is.  Leaning, Nevada too though.

And why do you deem Cal a "good" team?  What have they done this year to impress you? 

To be honest with you, im not betting on this game.  The line movement alone would lean me to Nevada.  Everyone and their mother is on Cal at -4.5 and then the line drops to -2.5 and people unload on it more and it wont budge.  albeit a small sample size, my local ticket writer at my casino said hes taken maybe 2 bets for Nevada and 200+ for Cal......and thats living in Reno

They were also without their 2 star running backs and 2 defensive guys for SMU.  2 RBs, who with Kap, were the core of this offense

I went back a couple of years, but not all the way to '04.  Looked like a couple more of the losses were on the road than at home. So, I'll give you that.  But in looking at some of their losses the last couple of years their are some real surprises even at home.  

Good luck if you decide to bet this game.

No bets on this game for me.  Nevada Alum here, so i will enjoy this game over quite a few frosty malted beverages.

Cal could easily win this game, but this will be by far one of the biggest games for Nevada and with a soldout crowd, the place bumpin, and having all our offensive weapons healthy, they definitely have a shot........at least the linemakers think so.  

BOL on your wager!
