Boise State held CSU to only 21 points in the first half and they were able to hang on in the second half for the win. The Broncos shot 38.9% from the field and forced 16 turnovers in the game. Boise State has also defeated San Jose State and Utah Valley during this winning streak. The Broncos are scoring 75.3 points per game with 37 rebounds per game and 12.9 assists per game, while giving up 65.3 points against per game this season. Tyson Degenhart is averaging 15.1 points per game, 5.3 rebounds per game, and 1.6 assists per game. Boise State is shooting 45.9% from the field, 71.2% on free throws, and 34.7% on three pointers this year. 

Nevada Preview

Boise State vs Nevada Betting Prediction

Nevada has started this season with a very impressive 15-1 record and they will be on their home court for this matchup. The Wolf Pack have allowed fewer than 60 points in three straight games and they are only allowing 63.3 points against per game this year. Boise State has also played well defensively and was able to contain a high scoring Colorado State team in their last game. I think we are going to see a strong defensive effort from both sides and I like the under here.
