Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play January 12th


#894 NEVADA (-6) over Boise St at 10:30 PM EST
Still on the outside looking in at the Top 25, Nevada (15-1 SU and 11-4 ATS) will make a case for itself when it dominates a solid Boise State team on Friday evening. The Broncos enter this MWC battle off three straight wins and covers over the Wolverines, Spartans, and Rams, and head coach Leon Rice and his squad will struggle on the road at this venue.

Clinging to a weak 1-4 SU and 2-3 ATS record in the last five meetings including a blemish in their most recent battle back on January 17th, 2023 (slipped 77-62 on the road), the Wolf Pack aren’t about to take this game lightly. It will certainly help that this contest is being played inside the Lawlor Events Center. In Reno, head coach Steve Alford and his crew hold a commanding 23-1 SU and 14-7 ATS record in their last 24 games including a golden 7-0 SU and ATS in this situation when facing a foe that arrives with confidence off a SU and ATS win. Additionally, in their last 53 games, the Pack holds an elite 38-15 SU and 33-17 ATS mark including a lucrative 26-5 SU and 23-8 ATS in this situation provided they are priced as a favorite of -14 or less.

This isn’t a very good wagering spot for Boise State either. In conference play stepping up in class and fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .801 or better, the Broncos hold a feeble 6-27 SU and 13-20 ATS mark provided they storm the court off a pointspread win. If Boise is priced as a favorite or a single-digit underdog in that last tightener, Coach Rice and his troops fall to a woeful 5-19 SU and 8-16 ATS. Lastly, in their last nine games lined up against an opponent that busts in off a blowout win of 10 points or more, BSU sports a shocking 0-9 ATS tally.

Owning a scoring margin average of 15.1 points per game, the Pack will do their best to crack the national rankings with a solid performance over the Broncos. Take Nevada. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
