TOM STRYKER’S FREE COLLEGE BASKETBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH
#836 NEVADA (-) over UNLV at 11 PM EST
Clinging to a 12-2 SU record in the MWC with four games remaining and currently in first place, Nevada understands the importance of this home war against UNLV. The Wolf Pack have a huge game on deck at Utah State (currently in 2nd in the MWC) and they simply can’t afford to go into that matchup with the Aggies off a straight up loss here.
Plenty of quality angles line up on this Best Bet. A quick look at the history in this series shows that the Pack has won three straight and covered 11 of their last 17 (1 push). In addition, when running inside the friendly confines of the Lawlor Events Center, Nevada sports a lucrative 50-4 SU and 37-14-1 ATS record in its last 54 tries including a powerful 30-9-1 ATS in this set fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .460 or higher. Lastly, in conference play UNR carries a noteworthy 54-16 SU and 42-25-2 ATS mark in its last 70 battles including 28-4 SU and 22-10 ATS if they’re playing in their own backyard.
If you want to fade the Runnin’ Rebels, make sure you get them when they’re nowhere near the City of Lights. In true road games, UNLV owns a woeful 13-28 SU and 11-26-4 ATS record in its last 41 including a nasty 1-7 SU and 1-5-2 ATS in this set if it is shagging +8 or more points. Also, when priced as an underdog or a favorite of -4 or less and fighting with same season single revenge, the Rebels have run out of gas notching a pitiful 8-21 SU and 10-17-2 ATS mark including 3-12 SU and 4-10-1 ATS if they hit the hardwood off a straight up loss.
The Pack has won 16 straight at home and own a NCAA’s best 25 straight up wins this season. Off a pair of pointspread losses in their last two games, head coach Eric Musselman’s crew get the job done here. Take Nevada. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
Off a split on Tuesday night that featured a nice upset winner on Toledo, Stryker is going after one hardwood honey that will deliver the mail. This 3* Best Bet is backed by two quality angles that hold big money marks of 18-3 ATS & 26-7 ATS. Grab Tom’s CBB Ultimate Database Wager for $25.
