Wednesday, January 2nd brings you a Mountain West Conference opener between the Utah State Aggies and the Nevada Wolfpack live from the Lawlor Events Center in Reno, Nevada. Utah State were winners last time out as they beat Eastern Oregon 84-57, and Nevada kept their season perfect by taking down Utah by a score of 86-71.
Nevada has won the past four meetings between these two, with their last matchup coming in February of last year, where the Wolfpack beat the Aggies 93-87. Expect another hard fought game between both of these schools on Wednesday night.
Utah State Aggies
Utah State were winners of four out of their six December matchups, and finished their non-conference schedule with an impressive 10 wins. Their two losses last month came to BYU and #21 Houston, with no wins of significance to really show for.
The Aggies open conference play with the second best record in the Mountain West as only Nevada comes in with a better record, and a #5 national ranking to back it up.
Utah State scored the ball well in their last six games, with an average score of 77.5, but they will need to get above their high score of 89 to come away with a victory in Reno on Wednesday night. Overall, the Aggies score 81.3 ppg, shoot 48.2% from the field, 34% from deep and 76.4% from the line
Defensively they are holding their opponents to an average of 65.3 points per game, but they will need to realistically hold Nevada to around 80-85 points if they want to keep up with the Pack.
Injury Report: F Roche Grootfaam and C Klay Stall are both listed as “out” for Utah State for Wednesday.
#5 Nevada Wolfpack
Nevada’s biggest win in December came against #20 Arizona State, as they beat them 72-66 in the Air Force Reserve Hall of Fame Classic at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. They swept their Pac-12 opponents in December by also beating Utah and USC in the month.
The Wolfpack come into this conference opener as one of only four remaining undefeated teams in the country. But this game will not be a gimme for Nevada. Utah State is a very high scoring team and the Pack, who shoot 46.83% as a team, will need to shoot lights out in a game that will most likely be a high scoring back and forth game from start to finish.
In the month of December the Wolfpack averaged 74.2 points per game, which is well below their season average of 82.8. If they want to keep their record perfect they will need to be closer to their high score of 86 from last month to come away with the victory here. Nevada shoots 46.8% from the field, 35.2% from downtown and 73.6% from the line.
Last month the Wolfpack held their opponents to an average of 65.7 points per game, with Utah being the lone team to score over 70 on them during that six game span. On the season Nevada holds their opponents to 67.5 points per game.
Injury Report: G Lindsey Drew is listed as “out” for Nevada for Wednesday.

Free Utah State Aggies vs. Nevada Wolfpack NCAAB Prediction:
This game should be a high scoring back and forth affair. Both teams can score the basketball at a high rate, and both teams are exceptionally good shooting teams. The O/U will definitely be flirted with in this one.
Nevada has a lot at stake in this game, but Utah State wants to erase the past two years worth of misery off of the books and start a new streak of their own. This will be a fun one to watch.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Utah State +10. A final score prediction is provided below!)
Take Nevada to win this game at home and stay perfect on the year, but take Utah State to cover the spread. 10 points is an awful lot to give against a 10 win team like the Aggies. Take the OVER as well.
