UCLA is coming off a 9-5 season last year while going 8-6 against the spread. Nevada was 7-6 in 2012, but went just 4-8-1 against the spread. This is the first meeting between these two programs.

Odds: The oddsmakers from Bovada.lv have UCLA as the clear favorite at home, as the Bruins have odds of -21 points against the Wolf pack. The over/under total for the game has been set at 66.5 points.

Line Movement: The opening odds for this game had UCLA favored by just 18 points. The spread was never lower than that. It peaked at 21.5 points before closing at UCLA -21. The over/under total opened at 66 points and hasn’t moved much, simply adding the ½ point.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the over. According to latest college football trends, the over is 5-1 in the Wolf Pack’s last six games versus the Pac-12 and 5-2 in their last seven games overall. The over is also 6-1 in the Bruins’ last seven games overall and 5-1 in their last six games on grass. Nevada has plenty of holes to fill offensively but the team will return quarterback Cody Fajardo and Brandon Wimberly, and will face a UCLA program that lost its entire secondary to graduation. Meanwhile, the Bruins have a special player in quarterback Brett Hundley, who threw for 3,745 yards and compiled 38 total touchdowns a year ago for UCLA. While losing Jonathan Franklin to the NFL hurts, Hundley is in store for another mammoth year and it starts tonight versus a suspect Nevada defense.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL WEEK 1 FREE PICK: NEVADA/UCLA OVER 66.5
