In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Colorado State at UNLV.
Colorado State started the season decently, however, in recent weeks, things haven’t been going their way. For example, the Rams are coming off an 88-68 loss to New Mexico State as an eight-point home favorite. New Mexico State outshot them by converting 51.5% of their chances. Colorado State just couldn’t make enough stops on defense- something that has haunted them all year long. The Rams offense was a two-man game with Adam Thistlewood and JD Paige netting 17 points apiece.
The UNLV Rebels, on the other side, are 6-6 and are coming off a tough 97-72 loss to Bucknell as a three-point favorite. The Rebels are currently on a 2-game losing streak and they will be looking forward to this one with hopes to end this skid. They couldn’t get anything going, scoring just 38% of their shot attempts while Bucknell converted 57.8% of theirs.
Both squads are inconsistent and have shaky defenses. I expect to see many points in this one as both teams will bounce back from abysmal offensive performances. I still believe that UNLV is the better side and if it wasn’t for their early trouble against Bucknell, they could’ve won the game. Prediction: UNLV -8.5 and over 149.5 points
