San Diego State vs UNLV Betting Prediction

These two teams come into this matchup with 11-5 conference records and they are tied for third in the conference, just one game out of first. UNLV will have the home court advantage and they have been one of the hottest teams in the Mountain West lately. The Rebels have won nine of their last ten games and have been very strong at home. San Diego State did beat UNLV by a score of 72-61 in the first meeting, but they are just 2-3 in their last five road games. This should be a fantastic game between two very solid teams, but I am going to side with UNLV at home.
