The Fort Wayne Mastodons and the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels will meet up on the college basketball court Tuesday. 

Fort Wayne managed an 18-15 record overall in the 2018-19 season. The Mastodons went 9-7 in Summit League play, which was good enough for a third-place finish in the conference. 

In the Summit League Tournament, the Mastodons managed a first-round win over South Dakota 96-70, but then lost a heartbreaker to Omaha 61-60 to end their season on a sour note.

Over on the UNLV side, they went 17-14 overall in 2018-19, and posted an 11-7 record in the Mountain West Conference. That left the Rebels right around the middle of the pack there, as they finished in fifth place. 

UNLV’s tournament run didn’t last very long. They were dispatched in the first round of the Mountain West Tournament by San Diego State 63-55, leading to the dismissal of head coach Marvin Menzies after three seasons. 

Purdue Fort Wayne is 16-33-2 ATS in their last 51 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five Tuesday games. The over is 17-5 in the Mastodons’ last 22 non-conference games and 22-7 in their last 29 road games. 

Meanwhile, the Rebels are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and the under is 5-2 in their last seven overall. The over is 4-1 in UNLV’s last five non-conference games and 5-2 in their last seven Tuesday games. 

Fort Wayne had some good stretches of play in the 2018-19 season, posting a six-game win streak at one point, then a five-game win streak near the end of the season. The Mastodons finished off the regular season on a bad run though, losing their final four games. 

As for UNLV, it’ll take a while to see what they’re made of now that TJ Otzelberger has taken the reins, but they should be in line for a solid season if they can stay consistent. That said, on a double-digit line I like the Mastodons to sneak in there. (Anything less than that and I’d be on the Rebels, though.)
