Against the Spread Pick
In the two recent losses, Duke opponents both scored 79 points and both games went over. The defense has not been great this season as they have not had the athleticism to really overwhelm opponents. In this one, I worry about them not being able to really contain Lykes. Take the over.
Over Under Pick
The San Diego State Aztecs are college basketball’s lone remaining undefeated team this season. They enter this game ranked 4th in the nation with a record of 19-0. The Aztecs have won their previous five games by an average of 13.8 points per game. San Diego State will look to extend the nation’s longest winning streak to twenty games when they host the Wyoming Cowboys. Meanwhile, Wyoming enters this game with a record of 5-15, which includes an 0-8 conference record, putting them in last place in the conference. They were one of the worst teams in college basketball last year, and they haven’t gotten much better. In the previous match-up between these teams, the Aztecs won by 20 on the road. I don’t see that changing in this game as I look for San Diego State to come away with the win and cover the 24-point spread.
