College Basketball Betting Trends

San Diego State

The Aztecs are 4-1 ATS in their last five neutral site games. San Diego State is 5-2 ATS in its last seven Saturday games.

Utah

The Utes are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. The favorite is 1-5-2 ATS in the last eight meetings.

Prediction:

The Aztecs have played some cream puffs but also has three wins over top 50 teams with two being by double digits. While the Utes are riding a high coming into this game, they are also inconsistent and have major issues on the defensive end. I trust San Diego State to play a complete game here and I think it will be enough to overwhelm Utah.
