The Colorado State Rams and the San Diego State Aztecs meet in college basketball action from Viejas Arena on Tuesday.
Colorado State comes into this one at 19-10 so far. In the last four games, Colorado State is 2-2 with losses to Utah State and UNLV alongside wins over Fresno State and San Jose State otherwise.
In the win over SJSU, Colorado State’s top scorer was Adam Thistlewood with 16 points and four rebounds. Deshaun Thomas added 13 points with two rebounds there, and Nicolas Carvacho doubled up on 10 points with 12 rebounds and one assist.
Over on the San Diego State side, they’re 26-1 so far. After opening the season with an incredible 26 straight wins, SDSU fell in their last outing to UNLV back on Saturday.
In the loss to UNLV, San Diego State’s Malachi Flynn with 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Matt Mitchell added 13 points with four rebounds and one assist there, and Jordan Schakel had 10 points and nine rebounds.
San Diego State is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up loss. San Diego State is 5-1 ATS in their last six overall and the under is 5-1 in their last six Tuesday games.
On the whole—and outside of a paltry 56 in the loss to UNLV—Colorado State is scoring pretty well these days, with at least 72 points in six of their last seven outings. Trouble is, Colorado State has also given up points on the other side at a pretty good clip too.
As for San Diego State, they fell to the plucky UNLV team as well, which was a bit of a shock from a team that had scored 71 or more for seven straight games. Still, I like San Diego State to bounce back here and cover. The line is a little thick, but the Aztecs should come into this one with a proverbial chip on their shoulder and reassert themselves. SDSU does need to get off to a good start here, though.
