The Nevada Wolf Pack and the Boise State Broncos meet in college basketball action from the ExtraMile Arena on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Boise State is currently listed as a 5-point home favorite, with an attached ML price of -205. The over/under for this game is set at 134.5 points.


No new injuries have popped up for either side coming into this game, with the most recent one for Nevada, K.J. Hymes, being ruled out for the season with a back injury back on January 3rd.

Matchup history

The home team has won the last three meetings between these two teams with Nevada picking up a 74-72 win over Boise State when these two teams met back on December 28th, 2022.


Nevada is 4-0-2 ATS in their last 6 games following a win and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Boise State is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.


I’m sticking with the over here. Boise State’s been known to be defense first, but they’ve added an offensive facet to their game lately, scoring 82+ in three straight, while Nevada’s found themselves in high-scoring games all year long and I don’t see that changing in this game. We had a similar number a couple of weeks ago when these two met and I think we get a similar ending here as well. Take the over.
