The Nevada Wolf Pack and Boise State Broncos meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Taco Bell Arena.

The Nevada Wolf Pack look for another victory after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Nevada Wolf Pack are averaging 82.8 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 71.2 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Caleb Martin is averaging 19.4 points and 2.6 assists while Jordan Caroline is averaging 17.1 points and 8.8 rebounds. Cody Martin is the third double-digit scorer and Kendall Stephens is grabbing 1.9 rebounds. The Nevada Wolf Pack are shooting 39.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The Nevada Wolf Pack are allowing 31 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.7 rebounds per game. The Nevada Wolf Pack have won eight of their last 10 road games. 

The Boise State Broncos look for another victory after winning seven of their last nine games. The Boise State Broncos are averaging 77.3 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 68.7 points on 42.3 percent shooting. Chandler Hutchison is averaging 20.3 points and 3.4 assists while Christian Sengfelder is averaging 11.4 points and 6.3 rebounds. Justinian Jessup is the third double-digit scorer and Alex Hobbs is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Boise State Broncos are shooting 38.6 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Boise State Broncos are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.3 rebounds per game. The Boise State Broncos haven’t lost a home game since February 28 of last year.

The Wolf Pack are 13-6-2 ATS in their last 21 vs. Mountain West, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Broncos are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Mountain West, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The favorite is 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Nevada Wolf Pack have won each of the last three meetings against Boise State and has proven that winning on the road isn't an issue. Nevada is one of the better offensive teams in the country and isn't a team you want to bet against often. However, the Boise State Broncos haven't lost a home game in almost a full year, and they're outscoring teams by 17.3 points this season thanks to 50.8 percent shooting from the field. Boise State at home is a different animal, and this season has been no different. In a near pick em, I'll take the Broncos.

Pick:
Boise State Broncos -1
