The San Diego State Aztecs and Nevada Wolf Pack meet Friday in the college basketball MWC Tournament at the Thomas & Mack Center.

The San Diego State Aztecs look for another win after beating UNLV on Thursday. The San Diego State Aztecs are averaging 72.3 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 67.8 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Jalen McDaniels is averaging 16 points and 8.1 rebounds while Devin Watson is averaging 15.7 points and 4.2 assists. Matt Mitchell is the third double-digit scorer and Jeremy Hemsley is dishing 2.2 assists. The San Diego State Aztecs are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The San Diego State Aztecs are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The San Diego State Aztecs have non-home games.

The Nevada Wolf Pack look for another win after beating Boise State on Thursday. The Nevada Wolf Pack are averaging 81.4 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 66.7 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Caleb Martin is averaging 19.6 points and 5.1 rebounds while Jordan Caroline is averaging 17.7 points and two assists. Cody Martin is the third double-digit scorer and Jazz Johnson is grabbing 1.7 rebounds. The Nevada Wolf Pack are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 71.2 percent from the free throw line. The Nevada Wolf Pack are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.4 rebounds per game. The Nevada Wolf Pack have won five of their last seven non-home games.

The Aztecs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games, 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Friday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Wolf Pack are 8-1-2 ATS in their last 11 Friday games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The favorite is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Wolf Pack last 5 overall. The under is 20-8-1 in Aztecs last 29 overall.

Nevada beat San Diego State by 28 points less than a week ago, getting whatever they wanted offensively and holding the Aztecs to 34.6 percent shooting. Despite their win yesterday, the San Diego State Aztecs are shooting just 38.2 percent from the field in their last five games, and that's simply not going to fly when playing Nevada. The Nevada Wolf Pack weren't great in their win over Boise State yesterday, but this is a case of one team not having enough horses to hang around. I'll take the Wolf Pack in a comfortable win.

Pick:
Nevada -11
