Winning Props Bets

The Utah State Aggies will try to rebound from a 77-72 loss to Colorado State last time out. Justin Bean leads the Aggies in scoring and rebounding by averaging a double-double per game with 19.6 PPG and 10.2 RPG while Brandon Horvath has 13.1 PPG with 6.3 RPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Utah State so far this season. Brock Miller has 8.8 PPG while Rylan Jones has 7.4 PPG and a team-high 5.6 APG to lead the Aggies in the assist department. As a team, Utah State is averaging 77.7 PPG on 48.5% shooting from the field, 36.1% from three and 74.2% from the foul line while allowing 69.9 PPG on 41.6% shooting from the field and 34.5% from the foul line this season.

Wyoming is 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games overall and 18-5 ATS in their last 23 games as a road underdog while the over is 17-5-2 in their last 24 Saturday games. Utah State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite while the under is 10-3 in their last 13 Saturday games.

I get the case to be made for both sides here as Wyoming’s been really good, but they’ve yet to play since Christmas Day. On the other hand, Utah State has a solid player in Justin Bean, but we’ve seen the good and bad with Utah State as of late. Instead, I’m going to side with the under. I think it’ll take Wyoming some time to get going and I don’t expect a massive offensive output from Utah State either. Give me the under in this one.
