Nevada

The Wolfpack are 4-1-1 ATS in their last four road games. Nevada is 34-15-3 ATS in its last 52 games following an ATS win.

New Mexico

The Lobos are 5-1 ATS in their last six games versus the Mountain West Conference. New Mexico is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games overall.

Prediction:

Nevada has crushed its last two opponents and is clicking on all cylinders right now with its veteran core. With a top-notch offense, the Wolfpack are facing a New Mexico team today outside the top 200 in adjusted defensive efficiency. Good luck with that. Prior to today, the best team the Lobos have played this season was St. Mary's on a neutral court. That ended in an 85-60 loss. Expect another bad loss today.
