Down goes another top-10 team on the road in conference play. Continue to take the slate on in scope instead of sweeping generalizations. A nice slate on Tuesday to choose from. Here are the College Basketball picks for February 6th.
College Basketball Picks February 6th
Nevada at Utah State (-5.5) (O/U 149)
Utah State comes off the outright loss at San Diego State in what was a horrible spot for them. They return home to take on the Nevada Wolfpack. The Aggies have been able to control the home court this season, touting a 10-0 record on their floor.

The only time you want to confidently back this Aggies team is on their home court. It’s a significant advantage as long as they aren’t playing San Diego State.
Aggies come off the road loss and return to their home environment. Great Osobor will continue to create matchup advantages and neutralize big men in the conference.
Nevada’s Nick Davidson won’t threaten from beyond the arc to make Osobor uncomfortable. This game should be a good one, but the Aggies at home laying the points to continue their streak.
The Pick: Utah State -5.5
Saint Mary’s at Pacific (+21.5) (O/U 129.5)
We were reminded that records didn’t matter when Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s faced off. The Gaels were able to top Gonzaga by 2 in their last game before hosting Pacific in this matchup.
It’s clear neither team is where they wanted to be, but Saint Mary’s hasn’t lost their defensive prowess. They are the 14th adjusted defense in the country and allowed just 28 points to this Pacific team in the last matchup at home.
This is one of the worst basketball teams in the country. Saint Mary’s should cruise to a convincing win. However, it’s worth noting that they are coming off their road matchup with Gonzaga.
We are going to back the under on this line as Pacific is uninspiring in just about every way, and Saint Mary’s is at the backend of a 2 game road trip.
The Pick: Under 129.5
