The Colorado State Rams and the Boise State Broncos will match up on the college basketball court in the Mountain West Tournament Wednesday.

Colorado State comes in here with a 12-19 mark on the year. The Rams have lost their last three consecutive games, dropping to New Mexico, Utah State and UNLV in that stretch.

In the loss to the Rebels, Colorado State’s top scorer was JD Paige on 16 points, seven assists and four rebounds. Nicolas Carvacho also had a big line for the Rams there with 13 points and 20 rebounds with three assists.

Over on the Boise State side, they’re 12-19 this year also. After a six-game losing streak versus Fresno State, San Diego State, Utah State, CO State, UNLV and New Mexico the Broncos finally got a win versus Air Force in their last game.

In the win over the Falcons, Boise State’s Derrick Alston led the team on 22 points with seven rebounds and two assists. Zach Haney helped out the Broncos there with 20 points, three rebounds and two assists as well.

The Rams are 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 Wednesday games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven neutral-site games. The over is 5-1 in Colorado State’s last six Wednesday games and the under is 4-1 in their last five overall.

Meanwhile, the Broncos are 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 after a straight-up win and 1-4 ATS in their last five neutral-site games. The under is 5-0 in the Broncos’ last five after an ATS win and 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games.

The last time these teams met up, Colorado State took a 76-62 road win; the time before that the Broncos eked out a 70-68 road win of their own.

This is a pretty evenly-matched pairing, but I’m admittedly a little concerned about Colorado State’s scoring over the last three games—they’ve put up 65 or fewer points in two of them. Boise State is a little more consistent in that area, but they’re giving up a truckload of scoring on the other side. With that in mind, I’m taking the Rams on what should be a razor-close game.
