NCAA basketball betting favors UNLV on Thursday as they host Weber State.
Both teams are coming off wins over Southern Utah as Weber State beat them last Saturday while UNLV beat them on Tuesday. The Rebels are favored against Weber State but they are not a sure thing to cover the college basketball betting line.
NCAA basketball betting has seen UNLV go with many different starting lineups this season. Head coach Lon Kruger has tinkered with his lineup this NCAA basketball betting season and that was the case again on Tuesday against Southern Utah. Junior guard Tre’Von Willis and sophomore center Brice Massamba were on the bench to start the game while Kendall Wallace and Matt Shaw were in the NCAA basketball betting lineup. “We are going to look at a lot of different lineups throughout the year,” Kruger said. Willis leads UNLV in scoring so seeing him on the bench was a shock in NCAA basketball betting. Kruger said hat Willis may be back in the starting lineup on Thursday. “We just have to make sure he doesn’t pick up two early fouls.” Kruger said.
If you are considering UNLV in college basketball betting you may want to take them at the half. The Rebels have trailed at the half in five of their last seven NCAA basketball betting games. They were only up by one point over Southern Utah at the half. “Maybe it’s a combination of things,” Willis said. “We need to talk more. Second half, we talked more. First half, we don’t talk as much and that takes away a lot of the help you can have.”
Weber State is 5-0 in college basketball betting in their last 5 Thursday games. The Wildcats are 16-5 vs. the NCAA basketball betting line in their last 21 road games. They are 37-17 ATS in their last 54 games overall and could give the Rebels trouble on Thursday. The Runnin’ Rebels are 8-3 vs. the NCAA basketball betting number in their last 11 non-conference games and are 5-2 in NCAA basketball betting in their last 7 games overall.
19 of the last 26 Weber State road games have gone over in NCAA basketball betting. The last four UNLV home games have gone over the NCAA basketball betting total. Five of their last six versus the Big Sky have gone over in college basketball betting.
