The San Diego State Aztecs have won 6 of their last 8 games and they arrive at Fort Collins as underdogs for this big Mountain West matchup on Friday night in Colorado.
The Aztecs certainly know that the Rams are coming out for some revenge after what happened the last time these two met in sunny California. A 79 – 49 thumping was handed out that day by the Aztecs handing the Rams one of their 3 losses this season overall.
I think many are still taken back by the 16 – 3 Rams this year. This program is putting up the quietest 16 – 3 I can remember in years and I caught that last game with Wyoming which was a thriller of a game. Going to Wyoming is never an easy order to fill when you are looking for road wins, however, but this Rams squad will be ready to go on their home court tonight.
San Diego State Aztecs
When you kick someone’s ass by 30 points like the Aztecs did to this Rams squad, you almost take it as a given that they circled the game scheduled on their home court coming up. Well, here it is, so getting revenge for that defeat will certainly be on the minds of the Aztecs.
Luckily, #5 is back on the court after missing all of December into New Year’s Day. Lamont Butler had a tremendous freshman campaign and he has already matched a bunch of his numbers from 28 appearances a year ago in only 12 games this year. Butler converted 40 FG a year ago and he has already exacted that number coming into this game with plenty of the season left to be played. Imagine if he didn’t sit out a month+?
Usually, it is time to move on and talk about another aspect of the team that helps them excel but hold on! The amazing job this kid has done to be playing over 26 minutes a night after really being a part-time sub a year ago? So impressed with his growth!
Oh, by the way, he is the second-leading scorer on this team putting up 9.3 PPG this year as he and Matt Bradley are simply working well together and big #1 in the middle sure helps clean up any soft shots in the paint. Mensah is in his final season with the program and he will need to be a big influence on the glass to help the Aztecs take this win.
Colorado State Rams
The Rams have heard enough about the strength of their schedule, even from people like me, LoL. Hey, we have the right to question them because this is an opinionated dude giving opinion-related betting advice to people.
In my opinion, this team does have plenty to prove because most 16 – 3 programs in any conference would be seeing the rankings at some point if they were considered a solid team. So, this is certainly a game that falls in that must-win category even though when any game becomes not a must-win we might as well stop watching sports, right?
Every damn play is a must-win much less the entire game for these two outfits right now because the Rams need this to be a breakout game to give anyone confidence in this final run of the regular season. In all honesty, this team could go 2 – 7 over this 9-game stretch of the conference schedule.
Boise State appears twice over the final stretch with Fresno State and Wyoming also on their slate ahead and they will be dogs for all 4 of those affairs, make no mistake about it. Especially if this contest turns out to be a home loss then the line setters will certainly give up on them from here on out.
David Roddy gives this team a good chance to win every night, and you see his nose for the ball and his size come in handy. Watching him throw 23 points in the overtime loss to Wyoming was still impressive and you can see his average boosted up to 18.6 PPG with the effort. The dude can ball and he has some nice help around him too.
Isaiah Stevens is a solid contributor on a nightly basis finding his way to 16.3 points a contest along with that obnoxious 90.2% free-throw shooting number.

Free San Diego State Aztecs vs. Colorado State Rams NCAAB Betting Prediction:
Nope, not yet! The Rams are playing some ball and they do have a couple of ballers. It won’t be enough to exact revenge on the Aztecs tonight but this should still be a much more tightly contested affair than the first meeting. I almost spit up my iced tea when I saw the 129 come out on this total.
