College Basketball Betting Trends

Nevada

The Wolfpack are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 road games. Nevada is 4-1 ATS in its last five games overall.

Boise State

The Broncos are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Boise State is 5-2 ATS in its last seven home games.

Prediction:

Boise State plays at a slow tempo and is better on the offensive end than on defense, same as Nevada. While the Wolfpack are obviously better on both ends of the floor, the home advantage plus the slow tempo played by both teams should keep the Broncos close. I'm taking the host dogs in this one.
