Against the Spread Pick
The San Diego State Aztecs will want to wrap up the regular season on a high note and keep their hopes alive for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. They suffered their first loss of the 2019-20 campaign to UNLV last weekend but bounced back with a victory over Colorado State on Tuesday. In its previous matchup with the Nevada Wolf Pack on Jan. 18, San Diego State took care of business via a 68-55 decision. Heading into the rematch, Malachi Flynn has led the Aztecs in scoring three straight times, exceeding his 16.9 ppg average on all three occasions. Nevada is on a six-game winning streak, but it just beat two of the worst teams in the Mountain West (Fresno State and Wyoming) by a combined seven points. The Aztecs are 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall, 11-1 ATS in their last 12 on the road, and 25-10 ATS in their last 35 against opponents with winning percentages over .600. Nevada is 5-11 ATS in its last 16 as a home underdog. Lean toward SAN DIEGO STATE.
Over Under Pick
Only 123 total points were scored in the previous meeting between these two conference rivals. The losing team in SDSU’s past four outings has not scored more than 63 points. Nevada’s Jazz Johnson has been kept below his 16.0 ppg average in three straight contests. The under is 4-0 in the Aztecs’ last four overall and 4-0 in their last four against opponents with winning records. It is also 4-0 in the Wolf Pack’s last four against opponents with winning records and 7-1 in their last eight at home against opponents with winning road records. The UNDER is the way to go.
