CSU shot a blistering 52.4% from the field, gobbling up nine more rebounds than their opponent, and dishing out six more assists. The Rams enter play on Saturday as the conference’s top scoring team, and also lead the Mountain West in field goal percentage, and three-point efficiency.

Defensively, they held New Mexico to 44.4% from the field, while limiting them to five offensive boards, and forcing 11 turnovers.

CSU is an above average defense on most night, but that wasn’t the case when they faced UNLV a few weeks ago. The Rebels put up 88 points, led by a career-high 45 from Bryce Hamilton. Hamilton is the conference’s top scorer averaging 21.5 points per game in Mountain West play, while Roddy checks in at number three with a 19.8 points per game average.

UNLV Rebels Betting Analysis

The Rebels (15-11, 7-6 MWC) meanwhile, have alternated losses and wins in their last four contests. Last time out, they snuck past Fresno State 60-57, led offensively by Hamilton with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists.

Royce Hamm Jr. added 12 points for UNLV, as the team survived an underwhelming shooting performance. They made just 40.4% for their field goal attempts, but dominated on the glass grabbing 11 more rebounds than the Bulldogs.

At the other end of the floor, the Rebels had one of their better performances of the season, limiting Fresno State to 9 points below its season average and just a 33.9% field goal percentage.

UNLV ranks middle of the pack in the conference in total offense and defense, which explains their near .500 record in Mountain West play.

Their victory last month over CSU is the only top notch win on their resume, as they’re just 1-6 against top-52 teams this season. Their play in those tougher games has been less than stellar, as they’ve been defeated by an average of 18.2 points per outing in those losses.

Colorado State vs UNLV Pick

As you can imagine based on their performance versus strong programs, the Rebels have not fared well as an underdog this season. They’re 4-8 when catching points, including 0-3 as a home ‘dog.

The Rams on the other hand, are looking for payback. They were guilty of taking UNLV lightly in their opening matchup, but don’t expect that to happen again. They’re in the midst of another lengthy winning streak, their third of at least five games this season, and have been excellent against the number.

Love the grit of this team! Great road win in the PIT.. on to Vegas! #TeamTogether https://t.co/fbKvNo5z8b

CSU has covered in four straight, and is 12-5 ATS following a win. They’re 5-2 against the spread on the road, covering their last three games away from home by an average of 9.3 points.

Pick: Colorado State Rams -3 (-114).
