Will update with trends when / if they’re released.
The Rhode Island Rams are a really good basketball team that are more than capable of winning a game like this, but in pick em games, I usually give the edge to the home team. The Nevada Wolf Pack have won six straight at home and are coming off a contest in which they moved the ball well and were deadly offensively. This should be a well played game that could go either way, but I give Nevada the slight edge because it's at home.
