Matchup History

Nevada’s 66-51 win over San Jose State made it five straight wins in this head-to-head matchup for the Wolf Pack.


San Jose State is 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games overall and 7-15 ATS in their last 22 Thursday games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 neutral site games. Nevada is 15-3 ATS in their last 18 neutral site games and 22-10-2 ATS in their last 34 games overall while the over is 10-3 in their last 13 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.


I’m backing Nevada here. The Spartans have been a solid cover team for us for much of the year, but the problem here is that Nevada had their number rather handily this season and in the conference tournament, I don’t see much changing to that trend. The Wolf Pack are the more complete team and the number isn’t bad considering the dominance that Nevada had this season. I’ll gladly lay the points with Nevada here.
