The UNLV Rebels and Nevada Wolf Pack meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Lawlor Events Center.

The UNLV Rebels look for a big win after splitting their last 12 games. The UNLV Rebels are averaging 74 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 72.2 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Kris Clyburn is averaging 13.3 points and 1.3 assists while Amauri Hardy is averaging 13 points and 2.6 rebounds. Joel Ntambwe is the third double-digit scorer and Noah Robotham is dishing 4.9 assists. The UNLV Rebels are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 68.6 percent from the free throw line. The UNLV Rebels are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35 rebounds per game. The UNLV Rebels have split their last six road games.

The Nevada Wolf Pack look to keep the ball rolling after winning 11 of their last 12 games. The Nevada Wolf Pack are averaging 81.2 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 65.9 points on 40.2 percent shooting. Caleb Martin is averaging 19.3 points and 4.9 rebounds while Jordan Caroline is averaging 18.3 points and two assists. Jazz Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Cody Martin is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Nevada Wolf Pack are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. The Nevada Wolf Pack are allowing 31.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35 rebounds per game. The Nevada Wolf Pack haven’t lost a home game since February 7 of last year.

The Runnin' Rebels are 11-30-5 ATS in their last 46 road games, 14-41-4 ATS in their last 59 vs. Mountain West and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wolf Pack are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Mountain West, 43-21-3 ATS in their last 67 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Runnin' Rebels are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the favorite is 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Wolf Pack last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Runnin' Rebels last 5 overall.

The Nevada Wolf Pack beat UNLV by 17 points last month and has won the last three games against the Rebels by an average of 16 points. UNLV has had some success on the road this season SU, but it's a team that's been god awful the last few years covering on the road. The Nevada Wolf Pack haven't lost at home in over a calendar year and are winning at home this season by an average of 21.8 points while allowing just 37.6 percent shooting. Nevada is also 6-2 ATS this season when favored by 18 or more points. I'll lay the buckets.

Pick:
Nevada -18
