College Basketball Betting Trends
The under is 6-2 in the last eight Wolfpack games overall. The over is 6-2 in the last eight Nevada games on Fridays.
The Sun Devils are 8-0 ATS in their last eight versus the Mountain West Conference. The under is 11-5-2 in the last 19 Arizona State games on Fridays.
Nevada has dominated the competition this season to continue what was a fantastic finish to last year. The Wolfpack are second nationally in offensive adjusted efficiency and they have rolled in every game this season, although ASU will be by far their top competition to date. But after showing it could beat very talented teams last March, I'm not too worried about Nevada in this matchup. The Wolfpack has plenty of big-game experience and I think they'll continue their strong start to this season.
