The Fresno State Bulldogs and UNLV Runnin Rebels face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Thomas & Mack Center.
The Fresno State Bulldogs currently sit with a 9-9 but they have lost each of the last two games. In the last game against San Diego State, the offense could only manage 57 points and that led to the defeat. Fresno State on the season is averaging 64.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 67 points per game. Fresno State is shooting 42.4 percent from the field but only 29.6 percent from behind the three-point line. Forward Orlando Robinson has been the best player for Fresno State averaging 15 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 41.7 percent from behind the three-point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the UNLV Runnin Rebels who sit with a 10-11 record overall but tey have won two games in a row. Each of the last two games have come against San Jose State and the offense was strong giving up only 64 points and that led to the victory.

Fresno State has dominated this series and I expect that is going to continue in this game. Look for Fresno State to have a big offensive game and that will lead to the Bulldogs coming away with a cover of the spread.
