UNLV Runnin Rebels vs Boise State Broncos College Basketball Betting Odds, Free Pick

Tuesday night college basketball and we will see the UNLV Runnin Rebels travel to Taco Bell Arena to take on the Boise State Broncos. The game has a start time of 11:00 pm (Eastern) and will be televised on ESPN U. Current Vegas betting odds have Boise State listed as 4 point favorites, while the total is set at 128.  

Analysis:  The UNLV Runnin Rebels come into this game off a solid 74-40 win over San Jose State. That win now puts UNLV at 10-6 on the year, but they are still just 1-2 on the year in the MWC so far. The Rebels are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a SU win of more than 20 points and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 road games, but just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The Rebels have been an average offensive team this year, ranking 166th in scoring (68.3 ppg), 133rd in shooting (44.4%), 129th in 3 point shooting (35.4%) and 294th in FT shooting (64.6%). Defensively the Rebels have been decent as they come in ranked 112th in points allowed (62.8 ppg), 18th in defensive FG% (36.9%) and 82nd in 3 point defense (30.9%). 

The Boise State Broncos have lost 4 games in a row, which now has their record at 10-6 overall and 0-3 in the Mountain West Conference. The Broncos have played well at home, where they are 5-1 so far. Boise State is 21-45 ATS in their last 66 games following a ATS loss, 6-18 ATS in their last 24 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 home games. Boise has been a decent offensive team this year, ranking 115th in scoring (70.7 ppg), 74th in shooting (45.8%), 44th in 3 point shooting (38.4%) and 63rd in FT shooting (72.4%). Defensively the Broncos come in ranked 114th in points allowed (62.9 ppg), 129th in defensive FG% (41.3%) and 145th in 3 point defense (32.7%).  

Pick:  Going with the Over in this game. Bose has played solid defense at home this year, but I feel that an improving UNLV offense can score on them in this game. Overall the Rebels have averaged just 65.3 ppg, but they have scored 69.4 ppg in their last 5 games. The UNLV defense has been bad on the road, where they have allowed 76.3 ppg and Boise's uptempo offense has scored 72.2 ppg at home. UNLV has hit 39.3% from long range and 79.7% from the charity stripe in their last 5 game, while Boise has been very solid from both those areas all year long. 70-65 here.
