Betting on the San Diego State Aztecs (20-0 Overall / 9-0 Conference)
The Aztecs extended their unbeaten run last Tuesday by beating the Wyoming Cowboys at home, 72-65. The Aztecs’ defense has been a huge factor in the success they are enjoying thus far this season. The Aztecs have not allowed more than 68 points in any of their last 12 outings. They held the Cowboys down to only 42.9 percent shooting from the field and 6-for-20 shooting from behind the arc. On the season, San Diego State is allowing only 57.2 points per game — third-best in the nation. The Aztecs’ smothering brand of defense has opponents shooting only 36.9 percent from the floor while also recording just 42.7 effective field goal percentage. Guard Malachi Flynn leads the Aztecs with 16.6 points per game and he’s also pacing his team in assists (5.1) and steals (1.8) per game.
The Aztecs are 5-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games. The total has hit the over in three of those games.
Betting on the UNLV Rebels (11-10 Overall / 6-2 Conference)
Standing in the way of San Diego State are the Rebels, who are coming off an 86-72 road loss to the Nevada Wolf Pack. The Rebels shot horrible against Nevada, hitting just 23 of 64 attempts from the field and going 7 of 25 from deep. The offense is a main concern for UNLV, which is only shooting 43.1 percent so far this season. The Rebels, however, seems to be fully aware that they are not that accurate in shooting the ball, which is probably why they always put up a tremendous effort in offensive rebounding. In fact, the Rebels are 23rd in the nation with 11.3 offensive rebounds per game and sixth in offensive rebounding percentage (36.0). Against the Wolf Pack, the Rebels were plus-10 in total rebounds and plus-9 in offensive rebounds.
The Rebels are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
San Diego State wins, 73-63.
