Boise State earned a 66-57 win Wednesday over Colorado State in the first round of the MWC Tournament to improve to 13-19 on the season. The Broncos established a 33-26 halftime advantage on their way to the win. Boise State shot 21-of-41 from the floor, 5-of-16 from 3-point range plus 19-of-24 at the free throw line. Derrick Alston led the way with 17 points on 4-of-9 shooting including 2-of-5 from 3-point land plus 7-of-8 at the free throw line. He also notched three rebounds and three assists. Zach Haney tallied 16 points, seven boards, two assists and two rebounds. Alex Hobbs had 12 points and three caroms off the bench. Michael Dickinson added 10 points and three steals off the bench.

Nevada rolled to an 81-53 victory Saturday night over San Diego State to clinch a share of the MWC title. Caleb Martin led the way for the Wolfpack with 25 points on 7-of-11 shooting including 3-of-6 from 3-point range plus 8-of-11 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Boise State

The Broncos are 0-5 ATS in their last five Thursday games. Boise State is 4-9 ATS in its last 13 neutral site games.

Nevada

The Wolf Pack are 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall. Nevada is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four Thursday games.

Prediction:

Boise State nearly beat Nevada in a 72-71 home loss this season, while later losing 93-73 at the Wolf Pack. I think it will be closer to the former than the latter today as I think Nevada might keep its foot off the pedal knowing there are a couple games to win after this. The Broncos have won their last two and during a six-game losing streak before that, they lost twice in overtime and two additional games by a total of three points. The Broncos have been very competitive as of late and I like their chances here to make it interesting.
