TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH
#654 UTAH ST (-5′) over Nevada at 9 PM EST
Off that 14-point road loss at San Diego State, Utah State will return home and knock off Nevada. The Wolf Pack make the trek to Logan off a massive 30-point home win over the Spartans that this will prove to be a tough trip for head coach Steve Alford and his crew.
Even though the Aggies won the last meeting between these two schools back on February 18th, 2023 (at home) by the final score of 75-66, USU’s 7-9 SU and 6-10 ATS mark in the last 16 battles will keep them focused on the task at hand. Thankfully, as a conference home favorite priced at -4 or more, Utah State owns a respectable 41-28-3 ATS record provided it takes the floor without confidence off a straight up loss. In this setting arriving off a road game, head coach Danny Sprinkle and his boys tighten up to a proud 31-18-2 ATS including a reliable 21-7 ATS provided they enter off a blowout loss of nine points or more.
This isn’t exactly the best wagering spot for Nevada either. When priced as an underdog and storming the court off a blowout win of 24 points or more, the Wolf Pack have been at their financial worst posting a pitiful 3-11 SU and 5-9 ATS mark. Also, in true road games arriving off a conference battle, Coach Alford and his crew hold a stiff 11-28 SU and 15-23-1 ATS tally including a disturbing 10-19 SU and 8-21 ATS provided they are priced as a favorite or an underdog of +8.5 or less. With those two parameters live and the Wolf Pack fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .635 or higher, this angle drops to a dismal 3-14 SU and 4-13 ATS.
The Aggies have quietly won 13-straight games in the Spectrum (10-0 SU this year) and they’ll have no trouble picking up their 20th straight up victory and the all-important cover. Take Utah State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
