Against The Spread Pick
Arguably the best team in college basketball heads on the road, as the San Diego State Aztecs pay a visit to Thomas & Mack Center for a match-up with the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels. The Aztecs are the lone unbeaten team in the country and are in search of their 21st win of the season. UNLV has lost nine of its last 10 games against San Diego State. The Aztecs have covered the spread in four of their last six games. The Rebels are 6-3 ATS in its last nine games. These teams met three times last season and San Diego State was able to win each of them, the closest of which was decided by one-point. That game was also played at Thomas & Mack Center. Taking the Aztecs to cover 7.5 points is the right play.
Over Under Pick
San Diego State has made itself comfortable with an average of nearly 75 points per game this season. The Aztecs have held opponents to 55 points or less in four of their last five games. Five of UNLV’s last five games have resulted in over totals. San Diego State has leaned heavily on the over in four of their last six games as well. Each of the last three head-to-head meetings was able to finish with over 134 total points. The Aztecs are likely to get the lead quickly. The over 134.5 total looks to be an easy reach here. Play the over.
