According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Colorado State is favored in this game, as the Rams are getting odds of -3.5 points against Nevada today. The over/under total for the game has been set at 56 points. These two meet today at 7:30PM ET from Arizona Stadium in Tucson, AZ.

Butler is the lead running back for Nevada (6-6, 7-4-1 ATS) and is a big reason that the Wolf Pack rank in the upper part of the nation in rushing (205.6 ypg). Butler has rushed for 1,156 yards and eight touchdowns this season. For tonight’s game with Colorado State (7-5, 6-5-1 ATS), Butler has been given an over/under of 99.5 rushing yards.

The Rams have not been good against the run this year, giving up 208.1 yards per game, which ranks 108th nationally. That is good news for Butler, who has had over 100 yards rushing in seven games this season. Nevada has actually lost each of the games that Butler has had 10 carries or less, so expect Nevada to give the 5-9 sophomore plenty of opportunities to make plays. If Nevada is going to have a chance to win, Butler will have to play a big role.
