College Basketball Betting Trends

UNLV

The Rebels are 6-18-2 ATS in their last 26 Wednesday games. The Rebels are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

Nevada

The Wolfpack are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall. Nevada is 43-21-3 ATS in its last 67 home games.

Prediction:

Nevada hasn't looked great its last two games, but this is a talented and veteran team that can turn it up in a moment's notice. The Wolfpack already have an 87-70 road victory over the Rebels this season and I can't imagine they do any worse at home. It's a big number to cover, but Nevada has won its fair share of games this season in blowout fashion and this looks like the next one.
