College Basketball Betting Trends
The favorite is 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The Wolfpack are 35-17-3 ATS in their last 55 games following an ATS win.
The Runnin' Rebels are 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games. UNLV is 12-35-4 ATS in its last 51 Mountain West Conference games.
The Rebels struggle defensively and are facing a team that is very efficient on the offensive end, so the visitors should have no issues finding baskets here. Nevada is also sound defensively and are likely to continue to pad its lead and pull away gradually on the road. While the Wolfpack won't win by 40 again, I think they are in line to cover another spread.
