Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play February 15th


#668 NEVADA (-15) over San Jose State at 11 PM EST
Off three straight impressive performances against San Diego State, Colorado State, and Utah State, Nevada will build off its huge upset win over the Aggies and have no trouble pounding this soft San Jose State team. The Spartans stumble into this contest on an ugly 0-12 SU and 5-7 ATS run, and they are in prime position to fall hard once again.

The Wolf Pack have certainly played well in this series inking a strong 31-3 SU and 19-13-2 ATS record in the last 34 meetings. Equally impressive, at home checking in off a blowout win of 10 points or more, head coach Steve Alford’s kids hold a sensational 121-19 SU and 74-47-1 ATS mark including an incredible 56-9 SU and 41-21 ATS record provided their opponent busts in off the comforts of a home game. With those two parameters cranking away and Nevada entering off a pointspread victory, this team trend explodes to a sensational 42-6 SU and 34-13 ATS including 35-0 SU and 28-7 ATS as long as the Pack are favored by -3 or more.

This is actually one of the worst technical settings for San Jose State too. When hitting the hardwood without confidence off a straight up loss, the Spartans own a pitiful 28-138 SU and 58-98-2 ATS mark provided their opponent arrives off a blowout victory of 10 points or more. Provided head coach Tim Miles and his crew are fighting a foe that owns a pointspread won/loss percentage less than .500, this team trend crashes to a disturbing 6-39 SU and 11-33 ATS including a miserable 0-21 SU and 3-18 ATS if they are competing on the road.

Resting with a 10-13 SU record, the Wolf Pack have three very winnable games on tap before a season ending stretch that has them battling Wyoming, Boise State, and Colorado State. Coach Alford would love to get his kids back to the .500 mark and he knows he needs this game to do it. Take Nevada. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
