Nevada Wolf Pack vs. Air Force Falcons

Where: Clune Arena, Colorado Springs, CO

When: Saturday, December 7, 2:00 PM. ET.

The Air Force Falcons will be going for their third consecutive win when they face the Nevada Wolf Pack in Mountain West action on Saturday afternoon.

Wolf Pack Going For Fifth Consecutive Win

The Wolf Pack have played well since they snapped their two-game losing streak and have won their last four games. They will be trying to pick up their fifth win in a row and eighth consecutive win over the Falcons when they play on Saturday.

Nevada has played well offensively, averaging 77.3 points per game. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range. In their last game, they scored a season-high 98 points against Santa Clara and will be hoping for more of the same when they face the Falcons.

Jazz Johnson led the way for the Wolf Pack with 20 points and five assists. Jalen Harris finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists, while Zane Meeks added 16 points and five rebounds for the Wolf Pack.

Nevada has also played well on the defensive end, holding opponents to 70.4 points per game. They gave up 67 points to the Broncos and will give themselves a good chance of winning this game if they give a similar performance on Saturday.

Falcons Trying To Snap Losing Streak Against Wolf Pack

The Falcons have bounced back from their four-game losing streak by winning their last two games. They will be trying to keep the momentum going with a win over the Wolf Pack, which will give them their third win in a row and snap their seven-game losing streak to Nevada.

Air Force is averaging 71.4 points per game, shooting 46 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. The team scored 86 points in its win over Wyoming and will need another solid offensive performance to beat the Wolf Pack.

A.J. Walker led the Falcons with 20 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists. Lavelle Scottie finished with 19 points and six rebounds, while Ryan Swan added 17 points, three rebounds, five assists, and three steals for the Falcons.

Air Force has played well defensively, giving up 71.3 points per game. The team gave up 77 points to the Cowboys in its last game and will need a significantly better performance to get past the Wolf Pack on Saturday.

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Wolfpack are playing well offensively, averaging 77.3 points per game. They averaged 83.2 points per game in their last four games and will go over 80 points against the Falcons, who have given up at least 77 points in two of their last three games. The Falcons are averaging 71.4 points per game, but they too will come close to scoring 80 points in this game because they have played well offensively in their last three games and are averaging 78.6 points per game during that span. With neither team locking down opponents defensively, the over makes the most sense here.

Prediction: Over
