Football Odds at Get That Bet — Ground Game Could Dominate as Nevada Visits Arizona

The Nevada Wolf Pack is off to a 2-0 start this season, which might not be a big shock to everyone, but the team isn’t putting up the numbers like some might have expected them to. And they have yet to face a team that runs the ball with quite as much precision as the Arizona Wildcats, who also bring quite a bit of balance to their attack and sports 2-0 mark as well. On Saturday night, Get That Bet customers will get to see these teams in action as football odds betting gets underway at 11 PM ET on the FieldTurf at Arizona Stadium in Tucson.

Arizona ran all over UNLV in the season opener, registering a 58-13 victory in which they totaled a shocking 787 yards. They had quite a different time of it nine days ago against a senior-laden Texas-San Antonio squad, as they eked out a 26-23 triumph.

Nevada has beaten Southern Utah 28-19 and Washington State 24-13. The latter was a game that was expected by many to be a much higher-scoring game, and in fact carried a total of 66.5 in the football odds, but defense seemed to dominate.

Arizona averages 332.5 passing yards and 288 rushing yards in its two games, but make no-mistake; this is a run-first spread offense as it is designed by head coach Rich Rodriguez. And that means perhaps a bit of a culture shock for the Wolf Pack, who had to defend only 23 rushing plays over the first two contests. Arizona may have that many in the first quarter alone. And they run these plays in a hurry, which is another reason opponents always have to be on their toes.

At the helm of the offense is freshman AJ Solomon, who hasn’t been terrifically accurate (just 55%), but has managed to throw five TD passes without sustaining an interception. The Wildcats have a lot of people who can run with the football, but the guy who Get That Bet customers have seen the most is Nick Wilson, another freshman who has 278 yards, including an 85-yard TD in his collegiate debut against UNLV. Keep in mind that Nevada was the worst team in the nation, statically speaking, as far as defending the run last season, allowing 6.6 yards per carry and 259 yards a game.

Nevada’s best opportunity to beat the football odds resides in the edge in experience it has at the quarterback spot. Cody Fajardo has been a tremendously accurate passer in his career, and this season is no exception, as he has hit 42 of his 62 passes thus far. He has always done his part rushing the ball (5.4 ypc this year). of course, the difference between these two offenses is that while Arizona, as mentioned, operates out of spread, Nevada runs the Pistol under Brian Polian, just like it ran it under Hall of Famer Chris Ault, the scheme’s originator.
