The Nevada Wolf Pack and the Colorado State Rams will match up on the college basketball court Wednesday.

Nevada cruises into this one with a 21-1 mark overall on the season. Since their lone loss of the year to New Mexico on January 5, the Wolf Pack have rattled off seven straight wins, most recently versus Boise State on Saturday.

In the win over the Broncos, Nevada’s Caleb Martin led the way on 30 points, four rebounds and three assists. Jordan Carolina doubled up for the Wolf Pack in that one with 13 points and 13 rebounds, and Cody Martin added 21 points and seven assists.

Over on the Rams’ side, they’re 9-13 this season. Since falling to the Wolf Pack on January 23, Colorado State is 2-1 with a loss to Boise State and wins over Fresno State and Air Force during that time.

In the win over the Falcons, Colorado State’s top scorer was Nicolas Carvacho, who doubled up on 20 points and 14 rebounds. Anthony Bonner added 16 points with five rebounds for Colorado State in that one as well.

The Wolf Pack are 24-9-1 ATS in their last 34 Wednesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall. Nevada is 5-2 ATS in their last seven versus the Mountain West and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 road games.

Meanwhile, the Rams are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games and 8-1 ATS in their last nine overall. Colorado State is 8-1 ATS in their last nine versus the Mountain West and 6-1 ATS in their last seven following an ATS win.

Nevada has had one or two scary moments during this seven-game win streak, but overall they’re chugging along quite nicely and have bagged at least 87 points in each of their last three outings.

That stat includes a 100-60 drubbing the Pack gave Colorado State back on January 23, but with the home lift this one shouldn’t be nearly as bad of an outcome for the Rams. I like Colorado State to lose of course, but also to eke into a cover since they’ve been so hot ATS lately.
