The Boise State Broncos and New Mexico Lobos meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Dreamstyle Arena.

The Boise State Broncos need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Boise State Broncos are averaging 71.2 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 69.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Justinian Jessup is averaging 14 points and 2.5 assists while Alex Hobbs is averaging 12.5 points and 3.5 rebounds. Derrick Alston is the third double-digit scorer and Roderick Williams is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Boise State Broncos are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 71.7 percent from the free throw line. The Boise State Broncos are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.3 rebounds per game. The Boise State Broncos have lost four straight road games.

The New Mexico Lobos also need a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The New Mexico Lobos are averaging 75 points on 42.5 percent shooting and allowing 77.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Anthony Mathis is averaging 15.1 points and two assists while Vance Jackson is averaging 12.3 points and seven rebounds. Carlton Bragg is the third double-digit scorer and Corey Manigault is grabbing 4.1 rebounds. The New Mexico Lobos are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 69.3 percent from the free throw line. The New Mexico Lobos are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34 rebounds per game. The New Mexico Lobos have won five of their last eight home games.

The Broncos are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Mountain West, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lobos are 11-27-1 ATS in their last 39 games following a ATS win, 56-24-3 ATS in their last 83 Wednesday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Broncos are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New Mexico and the favorite is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Broncos last 7 Wednesday games. The under is 5-2 in Lobos last 7 games following a straight up win.

The Boise State Broncos have lost their last five games and are losing those games by an average of 6.6 points while allowing 48.4 percent shooting. The New Mexico Lobos have issues as well, but they've won five of their last eight at home and are winning at home by an average of 6.1 points this season overall. This will also be the last home game for seniors Anthony Mathis and Dane Kuiper, and a victory is the only way to go out. I'll lay the bucket with the Lobos at home.

Pick:
New Mexico -2
