What Nevada-Air Force picks offer the best value when the two teams meet in Week 4?

Air Force faced its first real test of the season in Week 3, and the Falcons lost 17-14 at Wyoming. Meanwhile, the Wolf Pack continued their less than impressive start, dropping to 2-2 following a 27-0 loss to Iowa.

Air Force is a heavy favorite in this game. Can the Wolf Pack do enough to keep it close?

Here are our top Nevada-Air Force picks for the Week 4 college football matchup (odds via DraftKings and FanDuel sportsbooks, and PointsBet; Pick confidence is based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Nevada vs. Air Force Spread Pick

Nevada +24.5 (-110) ★★

The Wolf Pack are struggling in 2022, but they only allow 111.5 rushing yards per game. The Falcons showed in Week 3 that their offense isn't as explosive when the rushing attack is minimized. They should be able to run more in Week 4, but they won’t log anywhere near the team's season average of 396.0 yards per game.

The Falcons’ defensive numbers are inflated because of weak offensive opponents. Nevada is going to score enough to keep this within three scores.

Nevada vs. Air Force O/U Pick

Over 45 (-105) ★★★

Do not let Week 3 scores distract you. The Wolf Pack went up against one of the best defenses in college football, while the Falcons battled one of the top units in the Mountain West. These are two offensive-minded teams, and the Falcons could cash this Over alone if they're in peak form.

The Over has hit in five of the six meetings between these two teams., and this is the lowest total ever for a Nevada-Air Force matchup. Look for the Over to move to 6-1.

Nevada vs. Air Force Prop Pick

Nevada Over 19.5 (+270) ★★★

Both teams have scored 20-plus points in each of the six meetings. The Wolf Pack will limp along in 2022, but that doesn’t mean they're hopeless.

There's nothing shameful about suffering a shutout against Iowa. The Wolf Pack have scored 23-plus points in every other game.

Meanwhile, the Falcons’ defense has benefited from playing some pretty bad offenses. The Wolf Pack’s offense isn’t great, but it’s good enough to put up points against an untested Air Force unit.
