San Diego State
The Aztecs are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as a road favorite. The favorite is 6-0-2 ATS in the last eight meetings.
The Rebels are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. UNLV is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games as an underdog.
The Aztecs have not played the toughest schedule in the nation, but they have also beaten almost everyone convincingly and does have a solid early-season 76-71 road win at BYU on its resume along with an impressive 83-73 neutral court victory over Iowa in late November. San Diego State has barely skipped a beat in its road games and I wouldn't have been surprised if this spread wasnt a point or a point-and-a-half wider. I plan on taking advantage as now doesn't seem to be the time to fade the Aztecs.
