College Basketball Betting Trends
San Diego State
The Aztecs are 5-0 ATS in their last five games as a road favorite. San Diego State is 5-2 ATS in its last seven Wednesday games.
The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Wyoming is 7-3-1 ATS in its last 11 Wednesday games.
The Cowboys are barely inside the top 300 and SDSU already has a 17-point road win this season at a much better San Diego squad and a 22-point win at an even better Colorado State team. Neither of those road opponents are all that good, but Wyoming is fairly terrible. This is a big spread to cover, but look for the Aztecs defense to overwhelm one of the worst offenses in the country as they gradually pull away.
