The San Diego State Aztecs look for another win after beating Air Force on Thursday. The San Diego State Aztecs are averaging 75.3 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 59.2 points on 38.3 percent shooting. Malachi Flynn is averaging 17.6 points and 4.4 rebounds while Matt Mitchell is averaging 12.4 points and 4.8 rebounds.

The Broncos are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Aztecs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games as a favorite and 20-7 ATS in their last 27 Friday games. The under is 8-1 in Broncos last 9 overall. The under is 5-1 in Aztecs last 6 overall. The favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The San Diego State Aztecs looked shaky for much of yesterdays game, and they now run into a Boise State team that can shoot the rock at an above-average percentage and is 19-11 against the spread on the season. This feels like too many points to pass up in a tournament game. Give me a decent Boise team and the boatload of points.
