Matchup History

Colorado State’s 82-81 OT win back on January 14th, 2023, snapped UNLV’s two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.


UNLV is 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the over is 12-3 in their last 15 games overall. Colorado State is 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall.


I’m backing UNLV here. I get why Colorado State’s favored at home and the Rams did win the first meeting between these two teams a couple of weeks ago, but the Rams have just been a hard team to back in conference play. UNLV’s cooled off from their hot start to the season, but there’s no denying that they’re the better team side-by-side and I just don’t see this as a spot to back the Rams, even at home. I’ll side with the Rebels and the free bucket here to get some revenge on the road.
