Nevada is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The under is 5-1 in Nevada’s last 6 games. Air Force is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games. The under is 5-0 in Air Force’s last 5 games.
Air Force is really struggling right now and it stems from the inability to consistently score. Nevada has a much better scoring offense, but also gives up over 75 points per game. Nevada also is the better rebounding team here. I can’t back a team that can hardly score 60 points per game. I like Nevada here.
