The UNLV Rebels are playing decent ball lately, but they will be tested conditioning wise after playing yesterday and they've had issues this season playing up to their competition. The Utah State Aggies have won four straight, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 7.8 points. In the favorite role, Utah State wins by an average of 12.5 points while allowing 38.9 percent shooting from the field. UNLV may have a hard time finding easy offense and this game could get away in the second half. Give me Utah State and the chalk.
