AJ West is averaging 12.4 points and 9.9 rebounds while Marqueze Coleman is averaging 10 points and 2.4 assists. D.J.

Defensively, Nevada is allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and has given up 67 or less points in seven of its last 10 games.
The Aztecs are 44-21-2 ATS in their last 67 road games. The Wolf Pack are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a S.U. loss and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games.
A normal SDSU team would crush Nevada, however, the Aztecs have been a below average team on the road this season. The Wolf Pack aren't great offensively but they know how to get stops on the defensive end. I'll take a chance with the points here.
