UNLV Coming Off a Big Win

UNLV faced off against Boise State in the last game on the road and they sure looked good. UNLV gave up only 64 points to the Broncos and that was enough for four point victory. Rob Whaley Jr had a strong game putting up 18 points, six rebounds, and two assists. UNLV on the season is averaging 77.3 points while their defense is giving up 69.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 110th while the defense is ranked 139th. Kalib Boone has been the top player for UNLV averaging 13.3 points while shooting 63 percent from the field. There are three different players that are averaging at least 12.1 points per game. 

How Good is Colorado State?

Colorado State started out the season strong, but they have been a little bit inconsistent the last few weeks. Two games ago against Boise State, Colorado State scored only 58 points and they ended up losing by seven. In the last game against Air Force, Colorado State scored 78 points and they ended up winning by nine points. Colorado State on the season is averaging 81.5 points while their defense is giving up 68.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 38th in the league and they are going to need the offense to run up the score here. Isaiah Stevens is averaging 17.1 points while shooting 51.7 percent from the field. Colorado State is 14-3 in the Mountain West standings.

UNLV vs Colorado State Betting Prediction

Colorado State got back on teh right track in the last game, but what the ydid two gaems ago is still a big concern for me. This UNLV offense is good averaging 77.3 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. The Colorado State defense isn’t going to have any answer, and that is going to be the difference here as UNLV is going to get the job done. Back UNLV against the spread
