The San Jose State Spartans and Wyoming Cowboys meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Arena-Auditorium.

The San Jose State Spartans could use a win here to snap an eight-game losing streak. The San Jose State Spartans are averaging 64.7 points on 40.7 percent shooting and allowing 79 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Michael Steadman is averaging 12.4 points and 8.4 rebounds while Brae Ivey is averaging 10.5 points and 3.6 assists. Noah Baumann is dishing 1.4 assists and Oumar Barry is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The San Jose State Spartans are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 67.5 percent from the free throw line. The San Jose State Spartans are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.2 rebounds per game. The San Jose State Spartans have lost all five road games this season.

The Wyoming Cowboys could also use a win that would snap a five-game losing streak. The Wyoming Cowboys are averaging 66.8 points on 40.6 percent shooting and allowing 77.4 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Justin James is averaging 20.6 points and 9.1 rebounds while Hunter Maldonado is averaging 13.8 points and 6.8 rebounds. Jake Hendricks is the third double-digit scorer and Hunter Thompson is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The Wyoming Cowboys are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 71.1 percent from the free throw line. The Wyoming Cowboys are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.4 rebounds per game. The Wyoming Cowboys have lost five of their last seven home games.

The Spartans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Mountain West, 8-17-1 ATS in their last 26 Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Cowboys are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Mountain West and 6-20 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Spartans are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Wyoming and 8-2-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Cowboys last 7 overall. The over is 4-0 in Spartans last 4 overall.

The San Jose State Spartans are a complete mess as usual, and they're being outscored by an average of 27.6 points in their last five games and 24 points on the road this season. However, the Wyoming Cowboys aren't playing much better, as they're losing by an average of 20.4 points during their five-game losing streak and are a pathetic 3-14 ATS this season. The San Jose State Spartans are at least 5-3 ATS on the road this season and 7-7 ATS as an underdog. I'm not laying chalk with Wyoming in its current form. If forced to pick this contest, I want the points with San Jose State.

Pick:
San Jose State +7
