Nevada at San Diego State

When and where: Jan. 18, 2020. Viejas Arena, San Diego, CA, 8 p.m.

After an Auburn loss on Wednesday, No. 7 San Diego State is the last remaining undefeated team in college basketball. The 18-0 Aztecs put their unblemished record on the line when they face Nevada at home on Saturday.

Wolf Pack have lost two of three

Nevada is 11-7 on the season and 4-2 in the Mountain West Conference, but the Wolf Pack is only 1-4 on the road this season … and the game against San Diego State on Saturday will be their toughest road game of the year.

Nevada had lost on the road at San Jose State and Utah State before rebounding to beat Wyoming at home on Tuesday by one point, 68-67.

Jalen Harris sealed the win for the Wolf Pack on a layup with nine seconds remaining after the lead changed hands four times in the last 51 seconds.

Harris led the way with 20 points while Jazz Johnson added 16 points and Nisre Zouzoua scored 12. Robby Robinson pulled down eight rebounds to lead the Wolf Pack.

Harris leads the team with 18.4 points per game and 6.2 rebounds. Lindsay Drew averages 4.5 assists.

Nevada averages 74.9 points per game, ranking 103rd nationally. However, they are a very good three-point shooting team at 38.1 percent (22nd). They are a poor defensive team, giving up 71.1 points per game despite limiting shooters to 40 percent from the field (70th) and 26.6 from three-point range (8th).

Aztecs looking to stay perfect

San Diego State has continued to roll despite playing three of its last four games on the road. In their past five conference games, the closest margin of victory has been nine points.

On Tuesday, the Aztecs took on rival Fresno State for the second time in 13 days. Both games ended in nine-point Aztec victories. The Tuesday win on the road was 64-55.

Malachi Flynn led the way with 22 points while Yanni Wetzell scored 17 points and Matt Mitchell added 10. Mitchell also had eight rebounds.

Flynn is the leading scorer with 16.6 points per game and also leads in assists with 4.8 per game. Injured center Nathan Mensah leads the team with 6.8 rebounds per game.

The Aztecs play elite level defense, giving up only 56.9 points per game, ranking fifth nationally. The allow only 36.9 percent shooting from the field (eighth) and 26.6 percent from three-point range (sixth).

San Diego State is also good on offense, scoring 75.2 points per game (96th). They shoot 46.9 percent from the field (37th) and 37.4 percent from three-point range (33rd).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

San Diego State has met every challenge they’ve faced this season on their way to an 18-0 overall record. The Aztecs have an elite defense paired with a top 100 offense and has steamrolled all its opponents since a scare against San Jose State back on Dec. 8. Malachi Flynn fuels the offense with his ability to shoot from all three levels of the court and Yanni Wetzell has proven to be a nimble big man and a matchup nightmare for their opponents. Nevada has been able to beat the lesser teams on their schedule, but haven’t been able to match up against the good teams. They won’t match up in this one either.

Take San Diego State

Prediction: San Diego State

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

San Diego State’s elite defense has led to eight of their games going under the total despite having a great shooting and a top 100 offense. Nevada has a decent offense, but haven’t played a defense like the Aztecs this season. The Wolf Pack have basically three decent players, so it won’t be hard for the Aztecs to take them out of their game. The San Diego State defense, besides defending the shooters, is also good at forcing turnovers, which should keep the score low.

Robert Maxwell

Robert was born and raised on the mean streets of Huntington Beach, California, and growing up he spent more time on his surf board than in the classroom. Robert then turned things around in college when hr got involved on the newspaper staff. He started writing sports articles and then worked for the main daily paper. Covering sports led to betting on sports and I found I had a pretty good idea of picking winners. We are glad to have Robert on OUR team.
