Utah State opens as an 8-point favorite and the total is set at 141.5. I am going to take Utah State here for a few reasons. Utah State is home, and has had the luxury of rest, but not too much rest like Nevada. Utah State holds a clear advantage in the frontcourt with Queta leading the way. I expect a strong defensive performance by Utah State and a double-digit win.
