San Diego State will attempt to win 21 straight games for the first time in program history, as it comes off a 73-58 victory over the Nevada Wolfpack as 12-point home favorites last Saturday. The Aztecs have two players averaging double figures offensively, with senior point guard Xavier Thames leading the way at 18.1 points a contest. He has scored in double figures in 18 of his last 19 contests, which can’t be ignored when making your college basketball betting picks. San Diego State is 2-2 ATS as road favorites of 3.5 to 6 points the last two-plus seasons.
The Aztecs are 8-1 SU versus teams that advanced to the 2013 NCAA Tournament, with five of those victories coming away from home. San Diego State has also captured its last 111 games when leading with five minutes to play, which is important to consider when looking over the college basketball odds page. The program is 9-3 SU in its last 12 games in this series, with the three losses coming at the Arena Auditorium by a combined 19 points.
Wyoming has dropped two consecutive games despite covering the point spread in each affair, as it looks to bounce back from a 48-46 defeat to the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels as 5.5-point road underdogs last Saturday. The Cowboys have three probable starters averaging in double figures, with junior forward Larry Nance Jr. leading the way at 15.8 points a contest. Wyoming is 1-3 SU and 2-2 ATS as home underdogs of 3.5 to 6 points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 3-0 in that situation.
The Cowboys sit fifth in the Mountain West Conference standings, while they’ve had 13 games decided by eight or fewer points during the 2013-14 campaign. Wyoming’s 49 percent shooting from the field leads the league, while ranking behind just 12 schools nationally. The last time a top-five opponent visited this venue was in 1998.
Sports bettors will likely back the Aztecs due to their 6-1 ATS mark in the last seven meetings.
