Zane Meeks has 9.1 PPG with a team-high 5.9 RPG and William Washington has 8.6 PPG with 5.1 RPG this season. As a team, Nevada is averaging 71.6 PPG on 44.5% shooting from the field, 34.8% from 3-point range and 75% from the foul line while giving up 65.9 PPG on 39.5% shooting from the field and 32% from 3-point range this season.

Nevada is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. Wyoming is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. The road team is 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings between these two teams.

I’ve been trying to get myself to make a case for Wyoming as a home dog in conference play like this is tempting. However, Wyoming’s burned me too many times to count lately and prior to their last game they hadn’t covered in 6 of the previous 7 games. Nevada’s been playing really well on the road this season and have also covered the number in 6 straight so I’ll back the in-form Wolf Pack and lay the points in this one.
